A 100-level English Language student of the College of Education, Ikere-Ekiti, Ekiti State, has been found with the underpants of his colleague.

The suspect was apprehended on Monday when he attempted to run away, The Nation reports.

The stolen items are said to belong to the representative of Pace Setters Hall of Residence, Akinola Ayomide, popularly known as Mayegun.

The underpants were found in the wardrobe of the accused, identified as Tunde, with charms wrapped around them.

It was gathered that many students claimed Mr Tunde, populary known as Zacchaeus, was an internet fraudster due to his questionable lifestyle.

One of the residents of the hall, Oseni Michael, told The Nation that the suspect had joked to his roommates that he could use them for ritual, adding that they underestimated his ability.

“There were times we had complained of missing underwear. But since we usually find them afterwards, no one suspected anything,” Mr Oseni said.

Mr Mayegun was shocked to learn of the incident.

He said: “I went to town yesterday and on my way back, I saw one of my friends who pointedly told me: ‘You have been used’. I couldn’t understand this until I was taken to the room of Zacchaeus where I saw my underwear in a kind of calabash along with schnapps and some fetish items wrapped around it.

“I could hardly wait for Zacchaeus’ arrival and I asked him how my underwear got to his wardrobe along with those charms. He tried to escape, but we chased and grabbed him.”

The Dean of Student Affairs, Charles Egunjobi, said that Zacchaeus had been handed over to the police from Ikere-Ekiti Area Command.
