A dramatic scene which could best be described as a show of shame took place in front of the town campus of the University of Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, on Monday afternoon when a girl alleged to be a female student of that school held a man ‘hostage’ for refusing to pay her after he allegedly had sex with her. But the man claimed it did nothing the night they were together because he had asthma attack instead and was not fit for the initial plan.
The incident, which took place in front of the main gate of the university, was captured in a six-minute video posted on the Facebook page belonging to Inside Uniuyo.

The video shows a middle-aged man on the driver’s seat of a brown-colour Honda Civic car, rejecting entreaties from passers-by, apparently students, who were persuading him to “settle” a female student who had spent a night with him.
“Settle”, a euphemism in Nigeria, means to pay a bribe or give money for an illicit act.
“I gave her N2,000 she refused to collect,” the embattled man is heard screaming at those who were begging him to “settle” the student.
“I didn’t do anything with her. I had asthma yesterday night,” the man said in an angry tone.
The identity of the man and that of the student were unknown.
The female student, who appeared unperturbed, was busy eating boiled groundnuts from a cellophane bag on her laps.
