A student of the University of Abuja got more than he bargained for.

The student (names withheld) was on Sunday stripped naked by his colleagues after he was allegedly caught stealing phones at a hostel.

The 400 level student of Accountancy was said to have been caught red-handed while trying to make away with phones belonging to some students.

The angry students subsequently mobbed the suspect, tore his clothes and marched him to the security post.

The university Information Officer, Waziri Garba, said he was not aware of the incident.

“I am just hearing this, but when such things happen, we usually hand the suspect to the school security; I will get the full report, including the name of the student and his department from the Dean of Students,” he said.
