Although the actual reason for the man’s action was yet unknown, some conflicting claims have emerged.
While some alleged he went to see a female friend who had been avoiding him after seizing his phone due to his inability to fulfill promises he made to her, others claim the man, who is not a student of the institution, went into the hostel to steal.
The man’s suspicious movement alerted female occupants of the hostel on Monday evening, May 24, and they accosted him.
They later discovered his true gender and raised alarm, drawing the attention of male students who pounced on him.
Security personnel on campus intervened to stop the students from completely stripping the man and lynching him.
Footages from the scene shows the man wearing a red bra and boxers as he was taken away in a security van.
Meanwhile, student union executives of the school have reacted on the school’s Facebook page, calling for the removal of the head of security unit.
