Six male students of the Adamawa State Polytechnic raised alarm on Monday, over the alleged disappearance of their manhood.
It was gathered that two unidentified individuals arrived at the polytechnic and greeted the said students by shaking hands. Subsequently, the affected students’ private parts were said to have significantly reduced in size, resembling that of a matchstick.
A witness who spoke to journalists mentioned that fellow students swiftly assembled to confront the strangers and potentially urge them to undo their actions. Nevertheless, security personnel intervened and prevented the students from taking matters into their own hands.
“The students became violent because the police and polytechnic authorities prevented them from lynching the suspected private part thieves,” Daily Post quoted the eyewitness saying.
The aggrieved students blocked Galadima Aminu Way in Jimeta, restraining traffic movement on the major road along which the polytechnic’s main campus is located. It took a frantic effort from security personnel, including the military, police, and civil defence, to restore order.
Confirming the incident, the polytechnic’s spokesperson, Albert Matilah, said, “We woke up to this unfortunate situation. There have been rumours that criminals who specialize in snatching private parts of individuals were in town. And this morning, six of our students complained that their private parts had disappeared.”
Matilah added that the culprits had been apprehended and handed to the police.
