TOKYO (TR) – A part-time lecturer at the Sugamo campus of Taisho University resigned last week after arriving naked on campus following a fight with his girlfriend, reports Tokyo Sports (Jan. 10).
On Thursday at approximately 3:00 p.m., students alerted campus personnel that the lecturer, 55, was fully nude and on a passage way of a building. The man said that this was a means for him to convince his girlfriend, a 21-year-old student at the university, to trust his word.
Two days later, the university posted information about the incident, describing it as “an unsuitable act.”
The lecturer thereafter tendered his resignation, which was accepted by the university.
The student and the lecturer have been living together with the consent of her parents for about six months.
“Although it is a personal matter, it was something done in order to protect an important person, and, as a result, led to this situation,” he is quoted by Tokyo Sports. “I would like to offer my sincere apologies.”
