The Governing Council of the Osun State University, Osogbo, has terminated the appointment of Dr. Olabode Ojoniyi of the Department of Languages and Linguistics, Ikire Campus, caught on video having an amorous relationship with one of his students, Mercy Ikwue.
It was gathered on Sunday that the Governing Council headed by Mallam Yusuf Ali SAN, sacked the lecturer, who appeared nude on a bed  in a hotel room and caressing Miss Ikwue.
A member of the Governing Council confirmed the sacking of Ojoniyi to our correspondent in Osogbo on Sunday.
He said, “The Council met last week and the report of the panel that investigated Ojoniyi’s amorous affair with the female student was deliberated upon. His appointment was terminated because that is the penalty stated in the Code of Conduct of Staff of Osun State University.”
Apart from the member of the Governing Council, three other lecturers including two professors confirmed that Ojoniyi had been sacked.
Part II articles 15 and 23  of the Code of Conduct for Staff and Students of UNIOSUN read, “ An academic staff shall not conduct himself/ herself in relation to students in such a manner that derogates from his status as a lecturer, examiner and adviser. Specifically, sexual harassment of students by (members of) staff is totally forbidden. Any (member of) staff found guilty of sexual harassment shall be dismissed from the service of the university and may be handed over to relevant state authority for prosecution.

“An academic (member of) staff shall not demand from students any gratification whether in cash or in kind including sexual gratification in the discharge of his/her lawful duties. Breach of this code shall warrant appropriate sanction ranging from warning to termination of appointment depending on the gravity of the offence.”
Ojoniyi’s sex act was captured in a video which is believed to have been surreptitiously recorded by the female student.
The female student was said to have been pressurised by Ojoniyi for sex and she eventually agreed and followed him to their agreed place with a laptop computer from which she pretended to be watching a movie, Things Fall Apart. Unknown to him, Miss Ikwue was actually recording their sexual activities.
Ojoniyi had accused one of the lecturers of the university, who was recently dismissed for an alleged misconduct as the person behind the drama. According to him, the lady was contracted to blackmail him. But Ojoniyi did not deny being the one in the video.
The video clip went viral afterwards and Ojoniyi, when contacted by PUNCH did not deny that he was the one in the video and did not say his image was manipulated. He only blamed his detractors for the incident.
The Acting Registrar of UNIOSUN, Bayo Shittu, who doubles as the secretary of the council, did not pick repeated calls put across to his telephone line.
He had yet to reply to the text sent to him to officially confirm the sacking as of the time of filing this report.
A professor at the university recently resigned his appointment over the alleged rape of a female student in his office.
Some lecturers and students of the university told disclosed that the professor knew that he would be sacked if the case was investigated and he hurriedly resigned to prevent the embarrassment which would follow.

According to Ada Ebonyi who shared the clip on Facebook, the guy beat his school girlfriend mercilessly.

He repeatedly pounds the girl and furiously pins her down by her hair. The girl is begging the guy, Ekene and apologising, but the beating continues until someone manages to pull the 'Mike Tyson' boyfriend off the hapless girl.

According to reports they are students of Ebonyi state University, Ebonyi state.

Former beauty queen, Samantha Ubani shared this colorful photo as she passed out of the Nigerian youth Service Corp.

With grief in our hearts (FUTO) we announce the passing on of a super comrade. He was one of the finest, honest and dedicated servant-leader we have. He invested so much in the actualization of NAMMES national.

May God grant him eternal rest.

Goodnight Chinonso Mberi

The reason why many candidates forget their materials used for examination malpractice popularly know as 'Expo' in the booklets during WAEC exams, has been revealed.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Punch newspaper, the Public Relations Officer of the West African Examination Council (WAEC), Demianus Ojijeogu, revealed that some exam candidates who are in a hurry to submit their answer booklets to invigilators, forget their expo (materials used for examination malpractice) in their answer booklets.
While noting that some other candidates use different answer booklets from its authorised copies, he added that the council had reduced the incidence of impersonation in its examinations through its biometric registration process

We encounter malpractice during the examination and during marking. Some leave the expo in the answer booklets. We see that all the time. Others use other answer booklets different from the council’s own. But, we discover these things during marking because the booklets do not have our serial numbers and they are not usually signed by the supervisors. Supervisors usually sign the booklets before they are given to the candidates.

“We have been able to handle impersonation through our biometric process but there is still collusion where candidates will copy exactly the same answers usually dictated by a teacher. We have our invigilators but the number is limited.  When you leave the centre or before we get there, they will do what they want,” he said.
He added that the council was still dealing with challenges of collusion, which involved teachers aiding candidates during examination.
Speaking further in the interview, Ojijeogu, disclosed that some candidates harassed supervisors, adding that the development had forced the council to adopt a more discreet approach in making announcements regarding examination malpractice.
“We no longer make noise about examination malpractice because examination supervision is a hazardous job. When candidates engage in malpractice, we just take their number and they fill a form. Some of our workers have been held hostage, female supervisors have been harassed. It is a hazardous job,” he added.
A young man identified as Mr. Ogundare Opeyemi, who was a serving member of the National Youth Service Corps, has died.

Opeyemi reportedly slumped and died in the Nembe area of Bayelsa State.
According to Punch Metro, Opeyemi, died in the area where he was posted for his primary assignment.
It was also learnt that the deceased corps member slumped a day after he had a party with his colleagues in the area.

“A day after the party, he complained of a health-related issue and before we knew what was happening he slumped and died,” a source, who craved anonymity, said.
It was gathered that Opeyemi’s death caused panic among corps members, who raised the alarm over incessant deaths of their colleagues in the state.

His remains were later deposited at the mortuary of the Federal Medical Centre, Yenagoa.
Punch Metro reports that on Friday, corps members cried uncontrollably when the kinsmen of the deceased came to convey Opeyemi’s remains to Ekiti, his home state for burial. Hundreds of corps members went in large number to the mortuary.

Officials of the NYSC in the state were led by the NYSC state Coordinator, Mr. Anthony Ekeocha.
Ekeocha reportedly described the death as painful and decried incessant deaths of corps members in Bayelsa.

He said, “We are here to carry out an assignment and it is a painful assignment.
“We all pray that we should not die prematurely but at an old age. I put myself in the shoes of the parents after much investment but at the end this is what they got”.
Some lecturers in the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta have embarrassed their Vice-chancellor by presenting him a bread and coke as birthday gift.
The protesting workers presented the V.C with a coke and bread as birthday gift
Protesting Senior staff members of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, have taken their grievances to a new level after presenting the school's embattled Vice Chancellor, Olusola Oyewole a loaf of bread and a bottle of coca cola drink as a birthday gift as he clocked 61 on Friday

The man who have been in serious battle with the workers over allegations of financial fraud levelled against ‎him and the pro-Chancellor of the university, Adeseye Ogunlewe. Although the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has interrogated the two officials and is now investigating the matter, the Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities in the school have continued with their protest, demanding the removal of the VC.
So to send their grievance home, they organised a mini-birthday bash and presented the V.C a coke and bread at his office, Friday afternoon.
They were however intercepted by the institution’s Chief Security Officer, Peter Bolarinwa, who promised to deliver the bizarre package.
They also demanded the reinstatement of three of their colleagues, Abdulsobur Salam, Lasun Somoye, and Abimbola Bankole, who were suspended for sending a petition to the EFCC, leading to the investigation.

Is this right or wrong? This is the question being asked by online users after this photo of a school director punishing his students went viral. The students were stripped na ked outside their hostel and flogged on their buttocks. According to reports, this happened because the students refused to keep their environment clean. 

Actress, Dorothy Njemanze shared this story on her Facebook wall.
I was busy with school runs in Gwagwalada when I got a frantic call reporting the attempted rape of a first year University of Abuja(UniAbuja) student by another first year student of Biological Sciences called Monday.
By the time I got there, the Chief Security Officer was just beginning to interview both parties, starting from the boy, Monday.
He told of how he made his ‘intentions’ known to her and she said she would ‘think about it’ but he according to him, he didn’t understand why shy couldn’t give a straight answer, so he began making moves at ‘romancing’ her and feigns ignorance of her claims that from the moment he started, she told him to stop.
He claims he only noticed her seriousness ‘when he crossed the boundary’. He is upset that he had sent her 400 naira recharge card before and doesn’t get why she will reject him.

The young lady insists she came by at all because he said he was not well. By the time she got in, he was playing loud music, so from the moment he began trying to have se.x, she was shouting but the loud music drowned her voice. She insists he pinned her to the mattress and she tried strangling him with his necklace till it cut.
After that, she reached for the laptop as a weapon and ripping it out turned off all the music then he released her because she could now be heard. She ran out and called for help.
She got help and retrieved her phone and slippers and purse. Then she began reporting to their mutual friends and people she trusts. She insisted she injured him to. On demand, he took off his shirt and everyone saw injuries she gave him and more.
I got upset that the attitude towards gathering evidence is zero. There seemed to be a majority notion that as long as there was eventually no penetration, it is not so grievous a crime. All I insisted was to document all that could be seen as evidence before any statements are taken etc.
I applaud the lady for speaking up. We need ensure the students and security men understand sexual harassment in its entirety and be sure whatever responses are in place take into cognizance victim needs.
I was very agitated when it seemed people were upset that ‘she was trying to make a lot out of something very small.
More people need to understand what sexual violence is and legal provisions for victims and offenders.
More details tomorrow. These pictures were finally taken at the crime scene. More shocking experiences tomorrow morning.
Many are trying to use victim blaming and shaming to force her to drop the case. Please, let us change the narrative and share this widely to punish the perpetrator, not the victim. …Ambassador Dorothy Njemanze

Olugbade Israel, 26, graduated with a first class from the Department of Pharmacology, University of Lagos, having scored 4.52 CGPA in the 2013/2014 academic session. In this interview with Punch's Tunde Ajaja, he talks about his days as an undergraduate:

Can you recall how you felt when you learnt you were the best in your department and faculty?
I was very happy when I learnt I was the best in the faculty because I wasn’t expecting it. I didn’t know I was the best in the department until the final faculty result was released. So, when I heard I led the faculty, I was very happy. I believe many people also worked hard like I did, but God just wanted me to have it. It was a total surprise.

Did you have a goal you were working toward or having first class was just by providence?
Graduating with a first class was a decision I made two years before I gained admission into the university. All I did while in the university was to pursue that goal, and that made it easier for me because I already knew what I wanted. I discovered that most people don’t have an expectation of what they want to graduate with and that makes it difficult to track their progress.

Beyond setting a goal, did you do anything out of the ordinary to be the best in your faculty?
It is mainly about getting priorities right. I understood that when school was in session, it was time to read and all I did was to read. Then I played when school was on break. I think what I did differently was that I read every day for at least four hours instead of waiting until exams period. That helped me to prepare ahead such that I had few things to cover when it was time for exams. Interestingly, I wasn’t so much a fantastic student in my previous schools. My performance wasn’t consistent. There were times I had good results and there were times my performance was not very good. So, it was a mix, but thank God I became better. So, regardless of my efforts, I would still ascribe my success to God because, really, it is all about Him. I did my part but God granted me the strength.

If you were not so fantastic then, did you find it difficult to pass your West African Senior School Certificate Examination and Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination?
Passing WAEC was a big problem for me because I had a faulty orientation about it. I was told all I needed as a science student was just to pass English, Mathematics, Physics, Biology and Chemistry.So I felt I didn’t need to read since I saw myself as brilliant. It took me three sittings to have 5 credits. UTME was very easy for me, even though I took the exam three times and I had more than 240 in each of the sittings. Basically, my WASSCE kept delaying me. I finished my secondary education in 2006 and I secured admission in 2010. I didn’t find it easy seeing some of my mates already in school while I was still at home, taking O’level exams, but that has passed and I’m happy with where God has brought me.

Some people believe that courses related to medicine are meant for brilliant students only. How true is that?I believe everybody is brilliant and there is no course meant for some group of people, it’s just the application of our minds that differs. Medical courses are actually stressful and the textbooks are usually voluminous and it requires consistent reading, but if people are doing it, then anybody can do it. Some of those textbooks are interesting while some are very boring. I always read the boring ones before reading the seemingly interesting ones. But in spite of the demands, I love it and I enjoyed it. Though, there were times I felt intimidated by other professional medical courses, since I enjoyed what I was doing, it wasn’t a big deal to me.

When did you start having first class?
My final year. I had been working at it right from when I was in 100 Level, but it didn’t reach that mark until my final year. I never gave up and I’m glad I made it.

What was your typical day like?
My movement was mainly revolved around three places; from hostel to class and or from there to church. I was always in class from 6pm to 10pm every day and I was always at our praying field from 6am – 7am, Mondays – Saturdays. Having a first class is not cheap, so, I was reading for about six to seven hours during weekdays and I could do 10 hours on Saturday and Sunday. I only used the library during my first year but after then, I preferred reading in class because I like reading in a noisy environment.

Given the volume of books and notes you had to read, did you have time for social events?
At my leisure, it was either I was reading or I was teaching others. So, there was no specific time for social events but I didn’t miss Chelsea matches, even if the team was to play at 2am or I had exams the following day. I loved football and I wasn’t going to miss any match that concerned my team, except I was in church. I believe to be intelligent is to know everything about something and to know something about everything. So, I had to read beyond my course.

Were you in a relationship then or you saw it as a distraction?
I was not in any relationship. Though there were ladies I liked and there were ladies who liked me, I knew the goals I had set for myself and I knew I had to concentrate my emotional energy on God and my studies. It could have been a distraction for me, so I had to leave it.

Were there weird things you did in a bid to read?
I read in the oddest places on campus, like in the canteen, on the street, in the wards, in the toilet, at the lagoon front, etc., mainly because I read alone. I hardly read with people except I was teaching.

Since you were also reading at your free time, didn’t your friends see you as too serious?
There were such instances but I didn’t allow that to disturb me because the people who were seeing me as being too serious were still the same people who would ask me to teach them during exams.

What were your memorable moments as an undergraduate?
I had a number of that but out of them all, there were two memorable moments that stood out, the day my class went to Whispering Palms in Badagry to have fun after our exams, and I really had fun, and my convocation day, when I had to shake hands with the university chancellor, Prof. Jerry Gana, and the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Rahamon Bello.

In your view, why do students fail?
I think some people fail because they fail to place their priorities correctly and because most students wait for exam to come before they prepare for it. Students need to be diligent and consistent. I believe those are the key to having an excellent result.

What was the oddest thing you ever did for the sake of your academics?
Spending Christmas and New Year holidays in school.
