Lagos Parents Use Son As Collateral For N8,000

The family of 15-year-old Ajala Samuel thought they could briefly use him to raise money for some urgent family needs. But four months after handing him over to a Lagos trader, identified as Iya Meta, who paid them N8,000, his whereabouts had yet to be known by the parents.

It was gathered that Iya Meta allegedly loaned Samuel to some traders on the Lagos Island, who paid N72,000 for him. The traders were alleged to have further given him out to another family in the state.

Two policewomen, identified as Titi and Funmilayo from the Ijora Badia division, were accused of harassing the family to refund the N72,000 paid to Iya Meta, failing which Samuel would be forced to work till October 2017 when the contract would expire.

His stepfather, Idowu Isiaka, told PUNCH Metro that the family’s crisis started in June 2016 when he lost his job.

Covenant Suspends Over 200 Students For Missing Easter ‘Youth Alive’ Programme

Covenant University has suspended over 200 students for missing its just concluded Easter ‘Youth Alive’ programme. Parents and students have, however, described the move as unjust.

According to them, the rules of their admission did not say it is compulsory for them to attend the programme organised by the faith-based institution. A 400-level student told our correspondent on Wednesday that over 200 students were affected by the decision of the university.

He said, “We were going for the services in the morning and night and people were getting tired of it because we were also preparing for exams. So, the Vice- Chancellor got angry and ordered that those who missed the services be sanctioned.

Some were suspended for four weeks and those who had missed eight services for the four days got a year.” Another 300-level student said some of them have been prevented from sitting for exams and they had no means of protesting the sanctions which he said was ‘unfair’.

Davido's Brother Is Just An Idiot Born Into Wealth - Joy Isi Bewaji Reacts To "My Dogs Eat Better Than You." Statement

"My dogs eat better than some of you." - Davido's older brother brags. For the black man, it is not just money and success... it is the delight in humiliating another black man. A black man doesn't want to be successful if it will not allow him show off. We can't comprehend quiet success. It has to be boisterous, vain and condescending to others.

It is on this premise that we birth the #pepperdem concept. One step from point A to point B, the black man looks around to see who he can taunt with success that really isn't success, just a natural order of life... as instinctive as moving your head or your arms. Nothing more.

Your career is just taking off, no well thought-out plan just yet, no real success yet, it's still early days... but you are already a star (pronounced: staaaah)... you already have fans... you are already into the #pepperdem crap. Who are you peppering? Nobody. The journey is still far. Why do you need to look around to see who you can hurt with your average goals? Why is it even necessary?

Muslims In Northern Nigeria Will Remain Economically Backward Because Of The Ill-Effects Of Conservative Muslims - Emir Of Kano Sanusi

I choose to fight for the progress of Nigerians and suggest solutions to their problems. It's my duty to speak the truth about the ill-effects of conservative Muslims who are harming Islam rather than helping it. I condemned their refusal to expand their knowledge outside their own religion and failure to realise that knowledge is power. 

I also correctly concluded denying the right to pursue scientific and technological knowledge and restricting people to Islamic knowledge is the best means of ensuring that Muslims in Northern Nigeria will be remain economically backward. I'm upset at the legion of beggars on the streets and is trying to bridge the gap between the backward North and the Southern parts of the nation.

I still believe that conservative Muslims are still stuck in the 13th Century and their claim that children need no other knowledge than Islamic studies flies in the face of reality. All the poverty, under-development and immense suffering in the North are a result of uneducated masses refusing to learn work or a trade. The majority of technicians in Kano are from the South while untrained indigenes beg.
