The decay in morality has increased over the years in Secondary Schools in Nigeria since the introduction of Facebook to the social media and affordability of cell phones.

It is no longer only the adults who are involved in open affections and indecent exposure any longer but the young kids have joined the train of making out with each other. Some schools just resumed this week in most parts of Nigeria despite the Ebola scare and students who have been missing for a very long in the academic sector are trying to catch up in what they have missed especially some lovers. A head teacher was alarmed to meet two of her students in a hot romantic display after school. She was so angry that she had suspended them for extra one month from school. When she was asked why she would want them to spend extra one month at home, she insists that they are not ready to learn after the school’s long break
Miss Damilare Babajide who represented the faculty of Law, was crowned the winner of Miss Unilag 2014 beauty contest. She came ahead of 14 other beautiful contestants to wear the crown of glory in a fabulous event concluded around 2am today at the indoor sports hall of the prestigious University of Lagos.
Miss Babajide is a 400 level Law student of the institution, now a rightful owner of the brand new Toyota Matrix emerging the 2014 Miss Unilag beauty queen.

Speaking after her success, she expressed her utmost gratitude to God almighty for giving her the strength, talents, courage and the grace to emerge the winner, also to Sulcata entertainment, and other stake holders that made the 2014 Miss Unilag event a success.
She couldn’t hold back her great vote of thanks to her friends and family members for their love and support so far.

Three students of the Enugu State University of Science and Technology (ESUT), Agbani, are battling for their lives at the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital (UNTH).
TheNation reports that the victims were badly injured in shooting on Friday night, September 26, when unknown bandits invaded their hostel. It was suspected that the gunmen could be members of a secret cult.
It has been learnt that the students were rushed to UNTH in the early hours of Saturday. Intensive surgery at the hospital continues to save their lives.
One of the victims was wounded in the stomach. The damage is believed to be really severe. The doctors are reportedly battling to remove some pellets of the bullet, which makes the operation even more difficult.
The two other students are being treated in the same hospital. Their condition still remains unclear, while efforts are being made to contact their parents.
The area of the tragedy, the Unique Hostel, and other neighbouring hostels within the Agbani Permanent site of the ESUT, have been placed under security watch.

The move to beef up security may also be explained by management’s attempt to forestall a possible reprisal attack. Plain-clothe policemen deployed to strategic locations in and around the hostels. The attack has been confirmed by police spokesperson, Mr Ebere Amaraizu. According to him, the preliminary investigations showed that the gunmen could be “student robbers”. The spokesperson has reassured that the police would take the proper steps for detailed investigation of this matter. Amaraizu did not give much information on the arrests being made, adding that the command would provide further details about the ongoing investigations as they come. “From what we gathered when the gunmen attacked some students at the ESUT Unique Lodge, which is mainly Boys Hostel, there was a stiff resistance by the students who succeeded in arresting one of the gunmen. The arrested gunman alerted his armed colleagues who returned to the hostel and began shooting indiscriminately during which three of the students were shot and wounded,” the spokesperson said. It is not the first time this year trouble happens with ESUT students. On July 24, 2014, a bus belonging to Enugu State Ministry of Transport was destroyed by fire.

This scene shows exactly what's happening in the universities these days.

How some group of stupid boys that calls themselves Cultists, abuses innocent girls in public for some ridiculous and selfish interests.
These boys would leave their primary objectives of being in school (which is to study and make good grades), and now enroll in some other dangerous affairs which at times end up taking their lives.

Well, watch this video for full details of what am talking about.

Operatives of Peace on Campus Initiative (PCI), University of Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, on Monday, uncovered two improvised explosive devices in male hostel of the institution.
The operatives also arrested a diploma student of the institution, Mr Kufre Anwana, following the discovery. 
We gathered that two improvised explosive devices, widely speculated as hand grenades, were found in a bag belonging to the suspect by some students, who alerted the operatives of the PCI. 
National Coordinator, PCI, Mr Oliver Cromwell, told newsmen that his men in the UNIUYO chapter got information that the suspect was keeping explosive devices in his bag, while they trail him to his room in the hostel. 
According to Cromwell, on discovering the devices, which was well packaged in a bag, the operatives apprehended the suspect and invited anti-bomb squad formation of the Akwa Ibom State police command, Ikot Akpan Abia, to the scene for verification and possible diffusion.
He stated that the squad detonated the two improved explosive devices, while it also conducted a search round the other hostel rooms. 
“Anti-Bomb Squad was invited to come and ascertain if the explosives were real. When they came, they confirmed that those things were hand grenades and were locally made,” an eyewitness and student of the institution, who gave his name as Inyang, told the Nigerian Tribune. 
Inyang stated that Anwana was not in the hostel at the time the explosives were uncovered, but was apprehended and interrogated when he returned. 
It was, however, gathered that during interrogation, the suspect confessed to keeping the explosives, but dismissed that he actually bought or made them with intent to disrupting academic activities. 
According to him, he stumbled on the explosive devices on the school premises, saying he was planning to hand them over to the security. 
“It all started on Friday when I was coming back from the church. Just close to where the construction is going on, I saw two white things on the ground. When I picked them, I saw the inscription ‘hand grenade’,” he said. 

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Etim Dickson, confirmed the incident, saying that the explosives were homemade devices, which could have been invented by any of the science students in the university. 
He added that the police would get to the root of the matter. 
The police spokesman urged students and parents not to entertain any fear about possible breakdown of law and order in the university community. “The incident had been properly taken care of. We are on top of the situation. We shall get to the root of the mater,” Dickson, speaking with the Nigerian Tribune in a telephone conversation, maintained.

China witnessed its first self-immolation in 5 months last week after a 22-year-old student burned himself to death in protest

A Tibetan student, Lhamo Tashi, burned himself to death last week in the western province of Gansu to protest continued Chinese rule. 

In what is reported to be the first self-immolation in five months, Tashi set himself on fire in front of a police station last Wednesday, New York Times reports.

The twenty-two-year-old shouted slogans before dying of his injuries.

Student Pulse gathered that the police seized his body and cremated it despite contrary request from the family.

The family was reportedly given his ashes two days later.

No fewer than 132 Tibetans have self-immolated to protest Chinese rule over Tibetan territories since 2009.

Tibetans want as return of exiled spiritual leader the Dalai Lama.

A student of the National Open University of Nigeria, Abdulmalik Sa’idu, has been languishing in a police cell for over 20 days on the orders of the Governor of Katsina State, Ibrahim Shema, for posting details of an alleged fertilizer scam in the state on his Facebook wall, Premium Times reports
This was disclosed to Premium Times by Mr. Sa’idu’s family and lawyer. Abdulmalik was first invited to the Katsina Government House on August 28 by a phone caller who claimed he had a message for him. But when Abdulmalik arrived at the governor’s office, he was promptly arrested, handcuffed and taken to Batagarawa Police Station just outside the state capital, Katsina, and detained on the orders of Mr. Shema’s aide-de-camp, Shehu Koko, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, DSP.
According to his father, Maiyawo Sa’idu, while the young student was not charged with any offence, he was accused of cloning the governor’s phone number and using same to call the state Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affair, Sani Makana, with instructions that Mr. Makana deposit N3 million in his account. Mr. Sa’idu said his son was innocent. He said if indeed Abdulmalik cloned the governor’s number to dupe a commissioner he wouldn’t be tricked to come to the Government House to be arrested. “I think they are trying to frame him. I know my son cannot clone the governor’s number and call a commissioner to put three million into his account,” Mr. Saidu told PREMIUM TIMES.

He said Abdulmalik was arrested because he posted details of an alleged fertiliser scam by the governor on his Facebook page. Mr. Saidu said prior to his son’s illegal detention, some officials of the state government had warned his son to desist from criticising the governor on Facebook. On one occasion, the General Manager of Katsina State Road Maintenance Agency, Jamilu Umar, threatened to pay N2 million to thugs or policemen to kill Abdulmalik if he doesn’t stop criticising the governor publicly, Mr. Saidu said. Governor Shema’s Chief Press Secretary, Sani Malumfashi, rejected repeated calls made to his mobile phone after this reporter told him he was calling about Abdumalik’s case.

Mr. Sa’idu said he is worried about the wellbeing of his son after relatives were abruptly stopped from seeing him a week into his being detained. “For the first week they used to bring him out to me. He would eat in front of me and they would take him back to the cell but for more than 12 days now, we have not seen him. They told me that they have a directive from above not to bring him to me,” he said. “The DPO (Divisional Police Officer) told me they have a directive from the Government House not to bring him out for his family or anybody in Katsina to see him.”

Akin Ajayi, a Kaduna based lawyer, who is helping the family on the case, said the DPO of Batagarawa Police Station told him he had order from above not to release Abdulmalik on bail. “I spoke to the DPO of the Batagarawa Police Station and he said he cannot do anything because it was an order from above,” he said.

Mr. Ajayi said as a lawyer, the governor should realise that he was breaking the law by holding the boy beyond 48 hours on a “frivolous claim.” “The governor is a lawyer, his deputy is a lawyer and the attorney general is a lawyer and they all know that it is wrongful of them to arrest someone and keep him in detention for more than 48 hours on a frivolous claim that the boy cloned the governor’s number and wanted to collect N3 million and some other concocted allegations which are not proven. And they now kept the boy incommunicado. His family cannot reach him, and these days because of the security situation in the north, he could be killed,” he added. Mr. Ajayi warned that if Abdulmalik was not released he was going to send a petition to the National Human Rights Commission and the Inspector General of Police. The DPO of Batagarawa declined to talk to Premium Times after he was asked on whose orders Abdulmalik was being held beyond the 48 hours stipulated by law.

 The Police PRO, Abubakar Sadiq, also refused to return several calls after promising to find out the details of the case.

Culled from Premium Times
A 14-year-old special needs pupil was raped in her school toilets after teachers set up a trap to catch an alleged sexual abuser by using her as ‘bait’ – but then forgot about her.
Staff at Sparkman Middle School, Alabama, were investigating complaints that a 16-year-old student with a long history of sexual and violent misconduct had been harassing several girls. 
Mirror reports that the teachers received complaints that the boy, who also has special needs, had been asking girls to have sex with him. 
So one teacher’s assistant told the 14-year-old girl that staff could punish him, but only if they could “catch him in the act.” 
When none of the school staff followed her into the toilets immediately, she was sexually assaulted and raped.
The incident happened in January 2010 but was made public today after a legal document was published addressed to the United States Court of Appeals from the victim’s guardian, backed by the US Department of Justice. 
In the report, it is alleged staff ‘shredded disciplinary files’ at the end of each year and relied on their memory to keep track of records – including those of the 16-year-old male. 
But the report highlights how in 2008 he ‘touched girls in inappropriate places’ and wrote an ‘inappropriate note’ asking them to have sex. 
Over the next two years he was suspended for ‘sexual harassment’ and ‘making inappropriate comments’ and was suspended after stating he ‘would like to kill’ one student. 
In January 2010, several reports were made that he had ‘repeatedly been trying to get girls into the boys’ bathroom’ and that he ‘had sex with a student in the bathroom’ on the special needs student corridor – but he denied these accusations. 
It was reported that the school’s principal Ronnie Blair told one member of staff that the 16-year-old could not be punished because he had not been ‘caught in the act’. 
So when a 14-year-old female pupil came forward alleging she’d been harassed into meeting him in the toilet for sex, a teaching assistant told her to meet him in the bathroom where teachers could be positioned to catch him “in the act” before anything happened.
The girl reluctantly agreed but when she went to the bathroom no teachers were present and she was raped. 

After a five-day suspension and hearing, the boy was sent to another school – but returned after 20 days. The girl moved to another school. 
The brief, filed by the US Department for Justice, stated: “…a school administrator willfully ignores a plan to use a 14-year-old special needs student as bait to catch a student with a known history of sexual and violent misconduct, and as a result, the student is… (raped). 
“…a jury could easily conclude that the school acted with deliberate indifference when, despite two sexual misconduct complaints… it provided him unsupervised access to students and failed to protect (the victim).” 
Several months after the incident, principal Blair told “It’s a sad situation. At the same time, I feel very comfortable with the way the situation was handled. That’s about all I can say.” 
The Madison County Board of Education released the following statement: “The attorneys for the Board of Education and school officials are confident that the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals will rule in favor of the Board and the administrators. Our attorneys recommend that we not discuss ongoing litigation.”

Some claim he his into “yahoo yahoo” (Internet fraud) and all, but dude doesn’t care. After spending close to five years in the university, he had finally graduated.  See More Photos Below:
Nigerian Students And Their Double Life
According to the information gathered by Campus Sun correspondents, Nigerian students tend to play games pretending to be virgins at home and in reality live with lovers on campus.
The journalists spoke with numerous young people, who provided shocking confirmations, which will be given later below.

Generally, it turns out that a substantial number of undergraduates live in the world of lies, “where sex is cheaper than a pot of porridge”, as the Sun journalist characterized it.
According to the report a lot of students , especially girls, live for their partners. They wash the man’s clothes, clean the room and cook as if they were married. Single at home, but married on campus, for 4 years.
According to the Sun, cohabitation, or “campus couple”, is a widespread phenomenon concerning those students who live without the consent of their parents. Explaining why they do it, the interviewed people said it allows them to determine their compatibility status, as they get to study themselves before marriage (one of the reasons).
It is believed that only exam period reminds them of the studies, while the rest of the academic year is spent on “family practice”.
Some also cohabit for economic and financial reasons, it was revealed.
David Odia, a student of the Federal Polytechnic Auchi (Auchi Poly), explained:
“It is very romantic to live together as husband and wife, doing things in common, taking collective decision as a family. In fact, the period prepares one for family life. This has helped many undergraduates to discover their spouses to which they are happily married today.”
Amaka Okoro (real name witheld), narrated she was forced to cohabit being unable to secure accommodation on campus:
“Ever since I came here, I am more or less a mother. I do all the washing, cooking and domestic work. My academic programme is suffering as I find it hard to read my books, which is my primary reason for being in school.I feel bored at times. Whenever my fiancé and I have a quarrel, he abuses and molests me which gives me psychological and health problems.”
She confessed that her parents knew nothing about it. She added that some of her female friends engage in vices like stealing, lying and cybercrimes to raise fund to sustain the relationship.
A student of Medical Physiology, the University of Benin (UNIBEN) told the correspondent:
“The trend is rampant here in Ekosodin. Those that engage in it are the ‘happening’ girls and guys on the campus. The practice is really expensive and as such we respect those that engage in the act. What most UNIBEN students do here is to disguise that they are staying in their fellowship secretariat off-campus, which is not true. When you properly investigate the matter, you will find out that most of them are staying with their boyfriends off-campus. There was the case of a 200 level law student whose father is a politician in Lagos. She was staying with a student-pastor here in Ekosodin. As a result of her affluence, she was always demanding money from her father to sustain the relationship. They later made her the vice president of the campus fellowship. You need to see the way this girl was playing out the role of a wife to the student-pastor and neglecting her studies. Her parents became disturbed and told a relative that stays in the school hostel to find out where she lives. She was exposed and that was how the friendship ended.”
Speaking about another aspect of cohabitation, social worker Rachael Omoregie characterize the students’ behaviour as “sexual immorality” saying that girls’s pregnancy usually makes them drop school. Moreover, Omoregie lamented over abortions, which can be attributed to cohabitation, in her opinion.
“These students are not ready for parenting and can do everything within their powers to flush out pregnancies when they occur.”
Not all young people were FOR such way of living. For example Ese Akpovete, a graduating student of Physics at the Delta State University, Abraka, insisted this practice should stop as sexual breakups are likely to cause the depressive conditions associated with suicide attempts.
Joy Musa, HND 2, Mass Communication, Nuhu Bamalli Polytechnic (NUBA POLY) Kaduna, stressed the role of parents and explained how they could help their children:
“Parents who toil day and night to see their wards through school should cultivate the habit of paying them unscheduled visit in order to find out what they are doing in school. If students know that their parents would pay them visit without prior notice, they would be restrained in their wild adventure.”
What is your opinion on the issue: cohabitation – evil trend or just the mark of the modern society?

Students of Federal Polytechnic, Ado-Ekiti, on Saturday attacked the founder of Afe Babalola University, Ado-Ekiti, Afe Babalola, as they protested over power outage in Erinfun community.

SUNDAY PUNCHgathered that the students were angry that while they had been without electricity for over a month, a hostel for the junior staff of Afe Babalola University, Ado-Ekiti, in the same area enjoyed power supply.

The irate students stoned the vehicle of the founder of ABUAD, who was in the car. They also attempted to vandalise the hostel.

The protest caused a traffic gridlock on the road, which stretched over a kilometre.

The arrival of anti-riot policemen, who tried to disperse the students by firing canisters of tear-gas, further provoked them. The students in return threw stones and canisters of the fired tear-gas at the police.

The students, who failed to listen to pleas by the new Ekiti Commissioner of Police, Mr Frederick Lakanu, blocked the Ado-Ijan-Ikare highway.
Commenting on the development, the Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Victor Babayemi, said 30 students were arrested and would be charged to court for breach of public peace.

Many commuters were left stranded. A motorist, who simply gave his name as Mr. Jaye, who was on his way to Nigeria Immigration Service office area narrated his experience to our correspondent.

“I planned to visit my siblings at the Immigration office but I had to return to my house because the traffic was standstill. The students are protesting because we have not had power supply for over a month in Erinfun. All efforts made to the Power Holding Company of Nigeria to address the situation did not yield any response.

“The students are protesting because of the nonchalant attitude of the PHCN,” he said.

The Public Relations Officer of ABUAD, Mr. Tunde Olofintila, confirmed that the protesters attacked Babalola’s vehicle and the hostel.

He said, “They complained that the Erinfun community had not been having power supply for over a month and Chief Afe Babalola, as an elder statesman and one of those who facilitated the siting of the polythenic to the state, decided to intervene.”

“He called the rector of the polytechnic, and asked the students to send three of their representatives to meet with the unit head of the PHCN. They agreed but later said they were not going to meet with the PHCN and started the riot.

“They stoned Chief vehicle and attacked part of the hostel in the community. We had no option but to alert the police, who came to restore normalcy.

“The students and some residents in the area asked why Chief Afe Babalola’s hostel had electricity when the community didn’t have for over a month and we explained to them that the hostel was running on a generator and that it was the PHCN that was responsible for power supply and not Chief Afe Babalola,” Olofintila added.

This mess is becoming too rampant these days. I just wonder what's pushing our youths to commit such stupid act. As you read this, five guys have been arrested by the Delta State Police Command over the alleged gang-r*ping of Miss Favour Orji, a student of Delta State Polytechnic, Ozoro.

According to a press statement by the Command’s PRO, DSP Celestina Kalu, the suspects are:
Ekperierie Weomazino, Awolowo Abel, Chukwuka Godspower, Wilson Odili and Ojumah Kelvin.
Findings indicated that in the afternoon of 30 August, 2014, one of the suspects, Ekperierie Weomazino, who is also a student of the Polytechnic, invited Favour to escort him to Owhelegbo junction in the town to collect his handset. She obliged and followed her boyfriend...

The lady added that on reaching the junction, Ekperierie and the four others dragged her into a corner and r*ped her. They didn't just stop there, the stupid guys photographed in the shameful state.

Upon receiving the complains of the victim on 4 September, operatives of the Division swung into action and arrested the suspects.
DSP Kalu has assured that the Boyfriend and his guys would face the full wrath of the law.
What some lecturers do to people's daughters in the name of getting good result is not nice oh! After if you ask the girls, just like in Nollywood, they would tell you that there is no "doing"

Odumegwu Ojukwu
The Anambra House of Assembly on Thursday passed a bill, changing the name of the state-owned university at Uli to Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University.
The bill was passed during the plenary of the legislature in Awka to honour the former Biafra hero.
The decision followed the report of the House Committee on Education which recommended the change of the name.
Mrs Rita Maduagwu (APGA Nnewi South 2), the Chairman, House Committee on Education, recalled that the bill had been read the second time on the floor of the house on Dec. 17, 2013.
She said that the committee found that the university’s name had been changed before from Anambra State University of Science and Technology and that there were a number of provisions in the extant law that required review.
“After due consideration of facts and information, the committee recommends that the law establishing the university be repealed while a new law aimed at amending the principal law be passed,” Maduagwu said.
Mr Valentine Ayika (PDP Njikoka1) said that the bill was due for passage since it was read second time in December 2013.
Mr Tony Muonagor (APC Idemili North) said that the aim was to immortalise the late Ojukwu and to encourage hard work among the people of the state and Nigeria at large.
Mr Ebele Obi (APC Idemili South) said that the passage was a welcome development.
Mr Obinna Emenakaya (APGA Anambra East) said that the application for the change of name was long over-due since it was meant to immortalise a man who fought and lived for the Igbo people.
The Speaker, Mrs Chinwe Nwaebili, said that the university would be a multi-campus institution located in Awka, Igbariam and Uli.
She said members of the committee on education did a good work and urged others to prove their worth on any assignment given at committee level or otherwise (NAN)


The 2014 NECO June/July has been released!
The National Examinations Council (NECO) has announced that 52.29 percent of the candidates that sat for June/July 2014 Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination (SSCE) passed at credit level in five subjects, including English Language and mathematics.
The Registrar and Chief Executive officer of the Council, Professor Promise Okpala, who announced the result in Minna, said 74.30 percent of the candidates made five credits and above generally.

He said that 978,886 candidates of the 989,622 that registered sat for the examination, which was conducted in 76 subjects.
Of 989,622 candidates that wrote the examination, 72.58 percent scored credit level and above in English Language, while 69.49 percent made similar grades in mathematics.

In sciences, 72.86 percent of candidates that sat for Chemistry had credits, while 69.38 percent of physics candidates had credit levels and in biology 67.83 percent of the candidates made credit grades.

Okpala said that beyond the cost of running the examination, insecurity in many parts of the country grossly affected the logistic operations of the council during the school based examination.

The registrar also said that efforts of the council at reducing examination malpractices paid off as only 0.44 percent of those who sat for the examination were involved in malpractices.

Kolkata: A first-year graduation student in West Bengal's Birbhum district was caught cheating with a bluetooth device concealed in a seemingly innocuous wig.
The mass of fake curly hair was worn by Mohd. Saif - the examinee - for two consecutive days of the examination schedule.
However, his luck ran out on the third day Thursday when invigilators grew suspicious after seeing him blare out words while writing his test at the Suri Vidyasagar College in the district.

Many Nigerian students these days often move quickly to queue for private universities when
making a choice of institution.

I agree that private universities have advantages like the absence of strike, easy access to
lecturers… Well, that’s about all.

Public universities, federal and state, have a lot of advantages, from cheaper school fees, to the
freedom to be an adult. Public universities expose you to the real world, introduces you to the
hustle of life unlike private universities that consist of a lot of brats who are literally spoon-fed.

They are so pampered, making difficult to face the real world when they become graduates.
So here’s my case for choosing a public university.

1. Public universities allow for freedom and independence:

Students in public universities enjoy the freedom to make decisions for themselves and learn to
be almost independent. Private universities keep students within the four walls of their campuses
and under certain rules more suited for teenagers than young adults. The laws in public
universities are not imposed on the students; they are just the basic principles a normal student
is meant to follow. It’s funny when I see pictures of private university students being punished or
hear of certain rules like compulsory attendance of chapel, feeding time tables, dress codes,
e.t.c​.​ It is absurd; these are adults​!​

2. Cost of education:

It is a lot cheaper to attend public university than a private one and this is not limited to school
fees. Cost of living on public universities is also cheaper. Students cook their own meals and hav​
e access to shops on campus and in town where prices of goods and services are competitive.
On the other hand, the cost of living on a private university secluded campus for one semester is
enough to build a house.

3. Public university g​ives “exposure” to students:

It’s more than obvious that public university students are ”​sharper​”​ than private university
students. Private university students who are often referred to as “JJC” or “Learners” by public
university students, live what I term “the microwave life” which is the easy life.
In federal universities you get to meet all sorts: from cultists to Aristo chicks, people with
different personalities. It makes one exposed to what life really is. One is exposed to the hustle
and learns how to struggle for things. There are still brats in federal universities but most of
them get to grow up when exposed to the hustle.

4. Life on and off campus is FUN:

There are so many parties to attend, clubs and events. One gets to meet real people, one also
learns to be real. There is a lot of gist and gossip, lot of things to laugh at. Rather than chapel,
it’s clubbing. Dating is even fun in federal schools. Couples express love without fear as adults.
One gets to see students that are rich and poor mingling as equals; students who express
themselves through their dressing and not relegated to some uniform.

5. Hard work is compulsory

Students in public universities have work​ed​ through exceptional odds to succeed; challenges that
help one not take life for granted. Imagine a department of over a thousand students with a very
small lecture hall or a lecturer who spends only twenty minutes in a class where he is meant to
spend two hours, or one who only gives handouts. Faced with issues like these, students work
extra hard to come out with well-deserved results.

6. Public universities produce more mature graduates:

With all the challenges: strikes, nonchalant lecturers, freedom to express yourself as adult etc,
public universities are more equipped for life after graduation. They know that things would not
just be handed to them and are used to making decisions for themselves.

A 23-year-old National Diploma  student of Mass Communication Ibarapa Polytechnic, Eruwa, Oyo State, has accused a soldier attached to the state security outfit, Operation Burst, of raping her.

Poly Student Accuses Soldier Of Rape
The incident was said to have occurred on the Friday night, August 29, 2014.
The student said the soldier raped her three times within five hours under a tree while she was returning to her apartment at the Oke Ola area, Eruwa, when she was arrested by the soldier around 10.30 pm on the allegation that she was a cult member.
According to Vanguard, the student narrated her ordeal.
She said: “I was coming back to my room after seeing off a friend. He accused me of being a cultist for moving about around that time, but I denied it.
He then ordered me to climb his motorcycle, but I pleaded with him that he should let me go.“He removed a knife and said that he would stab me if I refused to obey him. So scared, I climbed the Okada and he took me to the Operation Burst office in Eruwa.“
When we got there, he forcefully led me to a dark area under a tree and ordered me to remove my dress to enable him see if I had tattoos on my body.
“He then removed the knife again and said that he would slaughter me like a ram if I failed to ‘cooperate’ and that I would be buried like many other girls who had failed to cooperate in the past, and nobody would trace my death to him.
“Sensing danger, I removed my clothes. He ordered me to lie down under the tree and had sex with me several times while I was crying.“He raped me till 3.30 am and when I complained of catching cold, he entered into the office and brought out a bottle of beer which he gave to me and then went to get a blanket for me to cover my body”
“After waiting for about 30 minutes, but when he did not return, I dressed up and ran away.”
The counsel, Adeosun who confirmed the incident said  other soldiers walked pass the randy soldier while the “disgusting act was going on” and did nothing.
Adeosun said in a statement: “The act was reported at Eruwa Police Station in the morning. The victim was taken to the Operation Burst office where an identification parade was carried out and she identified the randy soldier.
“He admitted raping her and begged for forgiveness. Our client was taken to the General Hospital in Eruwa for test.The hospital said it had no gloves to carry out test, so the victim had to buy a pair not far from the hospital. Dr. Jesim Gambo, who conducted the test only used the torchlight in his telephone to examine her private parts and concluded in his report that although she did not see sperm in the vagina, there was evidence that it was tampered with.
“He also wrote that the examination was inconclusive,” he said.
Meanwhile the outfit’s Second in Command, CSP Elijah Bawa said he dispatched a team of team to investigate the allegation of rape and the complaint was taken to the Eruwa General Hospital for medical examination, the result of which they said proved negative.
However, he said the soldier will be charged for abandoning his duty post in the night without permission against standing instructions in the Operation Burst’s code of conduct”.
The security men attached to Operation Burst was set up by Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State to check criminality in the state.

10. United States, 61.3
The United States’ access to basic knowledge index is 61.3, with a (relatively) extremely high secondary school enrollment at 89.5, an adult literacy index of 57.5, and a primary school enrollment index of 52.6. The United States’ federal structure is decentralized, meaning that every state handles its affairs individually. This, in turn, means that access to basic education varies from one state to another with local school districts possessing the power to determine their people’s level of access to basic education. Throughout the U.S. there’s compulsory education for children between 5 or 6 years old and 16, 17 or 18 years old depending on the state. In America, education is generally free until the 12th grade level. Yet, in spite of the free access to basic education in the U.S. there is growing illiteracy in the country. Millions of adult Americans can’t read or write, though an even larger number can only read 4th or 5th grade material. There’s also an increase in the number of teenagers who drop out of in high school; so while the U.S. offers a relatively high level of basic education to its citizens, it could be argued that for its level of wealth and development, the U.S. is under- performing in this area when contrasted with comparative nations.

9. Poland, 61.4
Poland’s access to basic knowledge index is, overall, 61.5. The index assessing women’s mean years in school comes in at 59.2 and secondary school enrollment is at 59.2, while primary school enrollment is at 55.3 on the SPI scale. Adult literacy in Poland is 57.8. Pre-primary education is compulsory for children between 3 and 6 years old. Children are also required to attend six years of compulsory primary education once they are 7 years old. This is followed by three years of lower secondary education, which is also compulsory. According to the country’s Constitution, each individual has the right to education. Public schools in Poland offer free education and the public authorities ensure that every citizen has equal and universal access to education.

8. Germany, 61.5
Germany’s access to basic knowledge index is 61.5 – meaning it’s a close leader ahead of neighbouring Poland. Germany’s adult literacy is 57.5, primary school enrollment is 56.7, secondary school enrollment is 60.0 and women’s mean years in school score is 58.0. Children between 3 and 6 years old attend pre-school prior to compulsory education. Preschool is not for free and children do not receive any formal instruction but there is compulsory primary education, usually between the ages of 6 and 16. As in the U.S., the education system differs from one state to another. Students in Germany must, by law, study a foreign language and they are typically heavily examined throughout the course of their education. There are three main kinds of high school in the country and eligibility is determined by academic performance.

7. France, 62.5
France is known worldwide for its inclusive education system, and the French ‘Lycée’ is now an international option. The index for access to basic knowledge in France is a strong 62.5, with primary school enrollment at 57.8, and adult literacy at 57.5 on the scale. The country offers compulsory education for children between the age of 6 and 16 years; the compulsory education includes elementary, and the initial four years of secondary college. Public education is available for free and children must generally be enrolled in schools near their homes. 80% of the students in France attend public schools while only about 20% are in private schools. Most of the private schools are run by the Catholic Church and the teachers are paid by the state. These schools charge low fees and this makes them accessible to students from various socio-economic backgrounds.

6. Israel, 62.9
Israel’s access to basic knowledge index is 62.9. The adult literacy index here is 56.3, primary school enrollment is at 55.9, secondary school enrollment is at a strong 62.1, while the index for women’s mean years in school is 61.3. The country’s education system is centralized and funded by the state and compulsory education starts during the last year of kindergarten and ends at the 12th grade. There are secular, Arab, and Jewish schools in Israel, and the compulsory education is free but in
some cases private funding goes towards the extracurricular activities in schools. Students who want to enroll in science and art schools are required to pay additional fees.

5. Sweden, 63.7
Sweden’s access to basic knowledge index is 63.7. The index for the country’s women’s mean years in school comes in at 61.5, secondary enrollment is at 60.5, primary enrollment is 58.9, and adult literacy is 57.5. According to the Swedish Education Act, every child and young person should have equal access to education regardless of socio-economic status. Education is compulsory for every child in the country from age of 6 or 7. The compulsory education includes special schools and programmes, which are designed for students who suffer from intellectual and physical disabilities. High school is compulsory up to age 15 or 16 and it’s also offered for free. According to the OECD research, Sweden spends more than the average country on its education system, spending about 6.7% of its national budget on education as of the end of the last decade.

4. United Kingdom, 64.0
The United Kingdom’s access to basic knowledge index is 64.0. The index of women’s mean years in school in the UK is at 60.7, secondary enrollment is 62.2, primary enrollment is 59.1, and adult literacy is 57.5. Students in the United Kingdom can either attend state schools – which are free – or independent schools that charge fees. The law requires students to go through full-time education until they are 16 years old and in the UK, financial incentives are offered to teenagers who continue in education after the age of 16 to prepare them for higher education or employment.

3. Republic of Korea, 64.2
Korea’s access to basic knowledge index is 64.2. The women’s mean years in school index is at a very strong 63.6, secondary enrollment is at 61.3, primary enrollment is at 57.9, and the adult literacy index comes in at 56.8. Education is compulsory for all children in Korea. The country offers free education for all children who are between 6 and 15 years old and high school students who are between 15 and 18 years have to pay tuition, which is subsidized by the government. Extra-curricular study and parental participation in their children’s education is considered essential, with ‘self-study’ sessions common. The citizens spend a lot of money on education compared with other countries. Koreans spend a huge 15% of the country’s GNP and 22% of their household incomes on education. However, while Korea’s education system has been praised it’s also been noted that it’s an enormously competitive environment, a factor which has been cited as a factor in the high suicide rate among Korea’s youth.

2. Japan, 64.7
Japan’s access to basic knowledge index is 64.7. The country’s education system is nationalized and the curriculum is developed by the Japanese Ministry of Education. Elementary and junior high school is compulsory in the country, where students must spend six years in elementary and at least three years in junior high. The nationalized system ensures that all students get an equal education; but it has been said that a lot of pressure is put on students to achieve highly in the university entrance exam at age 18, forcing a sort of meritocracy based on university degrees. For its provision of basic education, though, Japan still ranks as one of the most successful countries in the world.

1. Canada, 65.0
Canada’s access to basic knowledge index is at an unprecedented 65.0. Its secondary enrollment is 60.7, primary enrollment is 59.1, and adult literacy is 57.5. Canada’s education system is controlled by the different provinces, and the federal government does not regulate education – there is no national, centralised curriculum in Canada, meaning education can vary widely between the various territories. Public education is available for free for every Canadian who meets the residence and age requirements. Pre-elementary education is offered by local authorities, but it’s not compulsory. Elementary education is compulsory and it can either start at age 5 or 6 and until age 16 or 18 depending on the jurisdiction. Secondary education is also compulsory and it takes between four and six years. The country’s comprehensive education system has created one of the most skilled labor forces in the world; Canada’s strong economy and competitive industries can likely be attributed, at
least in part, to a strong, functioning system of basic education despite very little hands-on involvement from the national government.

The Minister of Health, Prof. Onyebuchi Chukwu, said on Wednesday that students in private and public schools in the country may resume from holiday by the middle of this month.

Prof. Chukwu disclosed this to State House correspondents at the end of Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting presided over by President Goodluck Jonathan.

At the briefing were the Ministers of Information, Labaran Maku, Transport, Umar Idris, National Planning, Abubakar Suleiman and Power (State), Mohammed Wakil.

The Federal Government through the Minister of Education, Ibrahim Shekarau, had last month announced October 13 as resumption date for all schools.

Chukwu said the expert opinion on Ebola, with the strong containment efforts by the government, is that the students can resume earlier than October 13.

The new resumption date, he said, will be announced by the Minister of Education after meeting with states Commissioners for Education and other stakeholders, who were involved in fixing the October 13 date.

The minister, who gives weekly report to the Council on the Ebola disease brought to Nigeria by the late Liberian- American, Patrick Sawyer in July, said that there are presently 296 contacts under surveillance in the country.

The 296 under surveillance, he said, include 255 in Port Harcourt, Rivers State and 41 in Lagos State.

After three weeks of surveillance in Lagos, he said 320 persons have been removed from surveillance list in the state.

Oh My Goooo.... I cant believe my eyes. I really wonder what this world is turning into. Parents! Parents!! Parents!!! Obviously you can't see everything they do but please for every little opportunity you get out of your very busy schedule to be with your child, try and sit him/her down and discuss issues like this with them, telling them the negative effect of doing such things at such tender age and at public places even when they eventually grow old enough to do such, Never Think They Are Too Young For Such Lesson Otherwise They Will Be Thought By The Very Wrong Person(s) or Set of People and after all, Please Be Very Prayerful.

The head of operations, Security Unit of the University of Lagos, Sunday Adejumo, was killed on Friday August 29th by suspected assassins at a beer parlor on Oyenuga street, behind St Finbarrs str., Akoka, Lagos.
Adejumo, 50, was drinking with some friends at a beer parlour called Daniel's Place when three men walked up to him, dragged him off his chair, stabbed him before they shot him dead. Continue...

Narrating what transpired the night he was killed, a resident of the area who spoke anonymously with Punch said it is believed that he was killed by some cultist
"When the gang got in, they went to where he was sitting. They had different weapons, ranging from cutlasses to guns. One of them went to him, hit him in the chest and he fell down. He then brought out a gun and shot him point blank. On the table where he was drinking with his friends were a pay slip, his ATM cards and his car key.”
Police sources say his body was taken to the Yaba mortuary. Meanwhile the three friends he went to the beer parlor with as well as the owner of the beer parlor are now being interrogated.

Deputy Police Public Relations Officer, Lelma Kolle, said the unknown gunmen actually tried to escape with the deceased car after they killed him
"Investigations revealed that the man parked his car a distance away from where he was drinking. The police also discovered that there was a blood stain on the car and the car key was found within the vicinity, also with blood stains. This can only mean that after they killed him, they attempted to go away with his car. They actually succeeded in opening the car because there were blood stains on the car seat. But the car did not move because of the security system in it. The owner of the bar has been arrested and he has made statements. We cannot categorically say whether this was a robbery or an assassination plot. The matter is still under investigation.” he said
The management of the University of Lagos is yet to make a statement on the incident.
