By Henry Umoru & Joseph Erunke

ABUJA- THE negotiations among the Senate, the Federal government and the leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU over the ongoing industrial action embarked by universities lecturers  ended without  parties reaching any compromise.
The meeting which was at the instance of the chairman, Senate Committee on Education, Senator Uche Chukwumerije, PDP Abia North, was called to pacify the striking lecturers with a bid to finding a common ground. However, a source at the meeting revealed that all efforts to push for a call off of the strike proved abortive as members of ASUU stood their grounds.

The source also said that for well over seven hours, Chukwumerije was literarily on his knees pleading with the lecturers to consider the plights of the students and call off the strike, but ASUU members refused to shift ground.
The meeting had in attendance, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Senator Anyim Pius Anyim, Minister of Education, Professor Ruquayyatu Rufai; Executive Secretary, National Universities Commission, NUC, Professor Julius Okojie and members of the Senate Committee on Education,among others.

OAU July-10-1999 Massacre {AFRIKA}

The Obafemi Awolowo University massacre was a series of shootings and murders which took place against students of Obafemi Awolowo University in Ile-Ife, Osun State, Nigeria on Saturday, July 10, 1999. It resulted in the deaths of eight people and injuring of 11, all of them students at OAU.

It was perpetrated by an organized death squad of 40 members of the Black Axe Confraternity branch at the university. They invaded the Awolowo Hall of the university at around 4:30 A.M., clad in black trousers and black T-shirts, their faces hidden by masks; they carried and made use of shotguns and hatchets against students.

List of victims
•Died
George Akinyemi Iwilade,AFRIKA (secretary-general of the students’ union and founder of the AFRIKA
FORWARD MOVEMENT, AFORM; shot in the head on his bed, then smashed on the head by an axe wielded by one of the Black Axe members)

•Tunde Oke (a 21-year old student activist and member of Democratic Socialist Movement, DSM, the Nigerian section of CWI).

•Eviano Ekelemu

•Efe Godspower Ekpede

•Yemi Ajiteru

Injured
several people were injured directly and indirectly from the ensuing confusion and stampede.

At around 4 p.m., Lanre Adeleke, the president of the students’ union, called an assembly of the students’ union members in Oduduwa Hall; he then demanded for Vice-Chancellor Wole Omole’s resignation due to Omole’s past impeding of the union’s anti-cult activities. A N10,000 reward was placed by the union for Omole’s capture, resulting in a student takeover of the entire campus and the kidnapping and ransoming of Omole’s wife, who was on her way to church on the following Sunday, July 11th.[1]

Students also erected roadblocks at the university entrances, impounded vehicles and launched vigilante searches to flush out the killers. After raiding a local police station to regain a suspect that they had turned over to the police after fears of police leniency surfaced, a suspect named Frank Idahosa Efosa admitted that he had overheard Omole being referred to as the “patron” of the Black Axes and also overheard that Omole had offered a large bounty for the deaths of the student union leaders.[1]

By July 14th, the Nigerian Universities Commission, headed by education minister Tunde Adeniran, recalled Omole from his position of Vice-Chancellor, and a multi-million naira investigation to uproot the confraternities was launched through the Nigerian university system; the Olusegun Obasanjo government, on the 15th, ordered police to patrol the university campuses.

The day before the funeral, Adeniran addressed a student union rally on the matter of the reinstatement of expelled students. Also, over N45,000 was raised by the student union, 30,000 of which went to the organization of the funeral.

Funeral
four of the “July 10th martyrs” were buried on July 20th, 1999, at university cemetery. Around 20,000 people attended the funeral, including students from various institutions, workers, lecturers, parents, market women, and journalists from throughout Nigeria. A local woman donated the five coffins for the dead. The people that turned out thereafter proceeded in a long convoy of buses and cars to Iwo, the hometown town of George Akinyemi Iwilade(AFRIKA), late secretary general of the student union and founder of the Afrika Forward Movement(AFORM), a socio-political organization promoting African culture and values.Afrika was laid to rest on the family,s land in an emotional and befitting atmosphere. July 10th every year is marked by AFORM and the students of OAU in remembrance of these martyrs.

Two other injured victims later died in hospital, and their funerals were held separately.

Nigerian mathematicians storm OAU for annual conference

BY KEMI BUSARI, OAU

It was a time to come together for the Nigerian Mathematical Society of Nigeria as it held its 32nd annual conference hosted by the Obafemi Awolowo Chapter.

The three-day programme which was well attended by delegates from various chapters across the country featured series of lectures, parallel sessions and dinner party.

At the opening ceremony held on the second day of the conference, Prof. Sola Adeyeye of the National Assembly emphasized the importance of Mathematics in a nation’s development.

Delivering a lecture titled; Mathematics: An Effective Tool for Poverty Alleviation and Solving Problems of Security and Climatic changes, he noted that Mathematics has solution to various problems in the society including that of poverty.
“Nigeria will not know unity,peace or progress until Nigerians in power and our citizenry at large abandon the reckless notion that Nigeria is rich. A country that claims to be rich needs no poverty alleviation.”

The lawmaker noted that the country is faced with the problem of illiteracy which is the inability to read and write and ill-literacy which is a condition whereby literate men and women are chronically impaired and fail in the analysis of their existence.

Stressing that the country is suffering from a failure of the inability to internalize the implications of simple arithmetic evaluation of our contemporary limitations, he emphasized that Mathematics can be used in the diagnosis and reduction of poverty.

Rendering statistics from foreign countries, Sen. Adeyeye who doubles as the Vice-Chairman, Senate Committee on Education bemoaned the pitiful status of education in the country.

OAU now haven for cultists, cyber criminals – Osun CP

By Onche Odeh 

Osun State Commissioner of Police, Mrs. Dorothy  Gimba, has declared that Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), one of Nigeria’s leading tertiary education institutions, has become a haven for armed robbers, cyber criminals, otherwise known as Yahoo boy; rapists, and cultist.

The students would, however, not accept this claim by the Nigeria Police, which they have described as being brutal on them.

The commissioner of police, represented by the Assistant Commissioner of Police (Operations) ACP Olumide Kayode, made this assertion during a close-door meeting with the leadership of the school’s chapter of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) leaders at the police Headquarters in Osogbo led by its Secretary General, Momodu Daniel, a 300 Level Political Science student of Obafemi Awolowo University.

Kayode who claimed he was making his assertion from intelligence gatherings said, “Permit me to tell you that in the past two to three years now, we have (Osun Police) been having problems with Ife. It’s either a lecturer was beaten, a lady raped, car theft, ritual murder, robbery case handled, a cultist arrested or cyber crime case treated”.

But the students, in a statement by the Director of Information and Strategy of NANS, Sam Adegbola, said the allegations are false.

In a reaction credited to the NANS Secretary General, Daniel said, “OAU is arguably the most peaceful institution in the world and the university management does not condone any form of criminality or uncultured activities.”

According to him “raping of students is never a commonplace in OAU because this is a school where anybody can walk freely both during the day and even late at night. No student has ever complained of being disturbed by any cultist or cult group and moreover, no student has been reported missing”.

The Secretary General of NANS also stated that even with the rampant cases of cyber crime in Nigeria, OAU students could be exonerated, noting that those involved in the activities may be students of other schools within the Ife metropolis and not OAU students.

He said he was never aware of any OAU student being alleged for armed robbery, adding, “There is practically no room for such people in OAU that I know, probably they are students from other schools in Ife.”

“The OAU Security Department led by Mr. Paul Ogidi is on top of the job, they are always available; but I believe the absence of the Students Union has made their tasks burdensome” he said.

According to Daniel, the essence of the visit was to facilitate the reduction of friction between the students and the Nigerian Police, while also condemning the series of attacks on Nigerian students by police, decrying also, the killing of students, especially during protest.

Four students, it would be recalled, were shot by policemen at the University of Uyo which also informed the death of the five NANS leaders, including the Senate President of the body, Donald Onukaogu who died in a ghastly auto crash while on the way to the institution for a peace keeping mission.

Kayode, however, thanked the NANS leaders for sparing time out of their ever demanding official schedule to dialogue with the Osun State Police, noting also that that the police would do everything to prevent people from threats to the society.

On his conviction that some of the so-called criminals are OAU students, Kayode said, “We know that these are students of OAU because whenever we try to make any arrest, the suspects always run to OAU to seek for cover because they know they can be protected by students who would stop our men from arresting them.”

“We’ve had cases where your students (OAU) used their colleagues, usually female students, for money rituals and I’m sure you are not oblivious to this; some of your students are involved in the so-called yahoo plus but I believe the school security is trying its best but they can’t do it alone. The school still needs vigilantes to complement the efforts of the university’s security,” he said.

Kayode, however, rejected claims that Nigerian Police brutalizes students during protest. He said “Gone are those days. The Police are aware that the students need to fight for their right and we even try as much as possible to give our little support; the Police will never kill any innocent student because of protest. A thief is a thief; any student that is involved in armed robbery would be killed. That’s all!”

 

In a related development, the President of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) Yinka Gbadebo who once claimed that the Police were after his life has announced that the body is set to organize a national congress against rough treatment of students by the Nigerian Police.

My life as a Yemoja priestess – OAU student

Iyalorisa Egbelade Omitonade Ifawemimo is a Yemoja worshipper and a traditionalist. The 22-year-old, who is a 300 level student at the Department of Economics, Obafemi Awolowo University, shares in this interview with Doyin Adeoye, her religious beliefs and passion for the indigenous African religion, among other things.

My religion and how it started
I was born into the African traditional religion. My father, Chief Olukunmi Omikemi Egbelade is a Yemoja Chief priest as well as a Babalawo. He is the president of all Onisese in Oyo State and although we were not allowed to really get involved when we were young, I was later gradually tutored in it as I grew up, when my parents realised I had passion for it. I practise the African traditional religion and I am a Yemoja worshipper, as well as a Yemoja priestess.  I’m also versed in Ifa and other Orisas, besides Yemoja. I was initiated into the Yemoja religion in 2007 and that was when it fully became my passion.

Continue After The Break.
