A lecturer is a father figure, a guardian, a mentor, and a friend. A
lecturer is one you run can run to with your problems, not one you run
away from after an issue. . The latter was not the story in my case. ,N
now I can’t am scared to trust any man.
He was such a correct lecturer that he had won best lecturer in the
department back to back, to backyear after yearback to back, to back.

banging the course, so I organized a tutorial class for them.
When Mr. Lawal heard about it he was pleased and offered to help with a

question, and decided to switch the topic. “Oh, Mr. Lawal, it’s getting

leaving. Apparently, he had other plans.
He came really close to me, and started to touch me. He tried to kiss

His eyes were red, it was like I was staring into the eyes of the devil.
I left as if I was about to die.
When he was done, he put his trousers back on, and threw me out of the
house before I could even get dressed. I cried on my way home, my mind
was scrambling with flashbacks. I didn’t know who to confide in. I
didn’t know how to tell my parents, or a friend, or the police. I was
afraid I would be stigmatized.
