ADEYEMI COLLEGE OF EDUCATION LECTURER ASKING A STUDENT FROM UNIVERSITY OF MEDICAL SCIENCE TO KNEEL DOWN 
These lessons have become necessary and sometimes mandatory especially the formal education which is an open door to all of life’s verisimilitudes. However, in the course of imparting these lessons, many teachers adopt several corrective measures to instill discipline in their students.
Some of these methods have been effective, while others, like corporal punishment which include the use of canes and asking the offending person to assume strange body positions, have been frequently abused.
Corporal punishment is a very common phenomenon in Nigerian primary and secondary schools save for some selected few, and is the preferred method of punishment of most teachers. What is however not common is to see this kind of punishment being employed in a tertiary institution.
But a lecturer of the University of medical science ondo state, UNIMED may be bucking the trend.
According to a Instagram  user narrated what happened:
“This happened in the University of medical science(UNIMED, precisely during a chemistry class. The name of the lecturer is Mr Babajide.
It’s not as if this is the norms in Unimed, i say a big No. But this particular lecturer has been terrorizing us.
“We have other lecturers who behaves well but this particular man is just something else i mean why will you tell adults like this to kneel and raise up hands.
“This lecturer rarely comes to class when he comes he spends most time sending students out and threatening them. He is just a disgrace to this wonderful university. We have very brilliant, decent lecturers who respects us for who we are e.g their response to the dress code saga.
“We are please begging the university to help caution lecturers like this so that our great UNIMED wonn’t be a laughing stock among other universities.”
He further shared some photos to back up his claims.
Another user however dismissed the story, suggesting that it was done in jest:
This story is absurd and is a disgrace to the Chemistry department and Unimed as a whole.
I’m a student of the dept and I have been taught by this lecturer and I can boldly say the punishment was obviously a JOKE.
I don’t understand why a student would want to destroy the reputation of not just his department and the lecturer, but also the reputation of the students in the pix.
Dr Babajie might not be the best in terms of Lecturer- Student relationship,but I know it hasn’t gotten as far as him punishing students on a serious note.
Whatever may be the truth of the story, corporal punishment is an offshoot of the religious, multi-ethnic, and deeply traditional culture of Nigeria and according to experts is a violation of fundamental human rights that should not be allowed in learning institutions and certainly not in a university meant to encourage, study, research and the advancement and development of knowledge.
Corporal punishment simply has no place in a university, joke or no joke.
