Jude Akachukwu is being detained for threatening his college professor


A 19-year-old Nigerian student, Jude Chiedu Akachukwu, has been arrested and detained by the police for imprisoning and threatening to harm his professor at the Santa Fe College if she refused to allow him to sit for a makeup examination.

MugShot reports that Akachukwu had walked into the professor's office without being invited, closed the door blocking the doorway and threatening that she would not leave the office until she agreed to allow him to take the exam he had earlier missed.

It was gathered that the college student also grabbed the professor's arm as she tried to walk away, warning her of the consequences if she refused to let him have his way.

When the professor told him she would have to call the police, Akachukwu reportedly threw himself on the floor and started crying. The professor managed to leave her office and went to a nearby classroom to teach.

Akachukwu, a resident of Gainesville in the Alachua County,  allegedly followed and began to disrupt the class before he was arrested by the school security and handed over to the police.
