(Must Read) We are not safe... security is not tight - OAU Student at Moremi hostel

OAU NEWS


   Just yesterday around 12:00 am, an incident occurred in Moremi hall as the students reported a mysterious woman and her son who obviously are not  students but are always coming around.

   According to students they said she and her son comes in the evening with a box and leaves in the morning with the box and a full polythen bag (content unknown) and they all testified to the fact that she does that regularly. When the students questioned her she said she is a cleaner in the hall, but when the portals came around she gave an entirely different story that she was coming from ibadan and she is a stranger and needed somewhere to stay overnight so someone  gave her a bed and told her to spent the night in Moremi.

   Further questions yielded useless informations as the portals were obviously on her side and believed everything she said and insisted on the fact that she is helpless and harmless but the students won't take that for an answer. They said they see them around most times and a lady said she once asked her if she could cook in her room which she bluntly refused.

   We dont know what to believe because when the portals searched her purse they said the items they found were maggi, bread and other edible materials.

   She was released at first but some students insisted that she was further investigated and the truth of the matter made known because they feel an atmosphere of insecurity considering the two different stories she told which are contradictory to what the students testified to.

   The woman and her son were finally taken away by the school security and two floor representatives. Present situation still unknown.

SPORTS: SUPER FRANKIE RETIRES AT 38 WITH INCREDIBLE STATS!!!

Super Frankie Lampard 



Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has announced retirement from football at the age of 38. Here are some of the stats which mark him out as one of the finest to ever pull on the famous no 8 shirt for the blues...
The former England midfielder left the blues in 2014 and has since represented Manchester City and New York City, before leaving the US club and calling it quit on his playing career. But despite those two spells at Manchester city and New York city and starting his career at West Ham United, it is Chelsea that he will always be linked with after 13 fantastic years in London.

If there's any doubt over the huge impact he had on the Blues, just check out the figures from his time here. The Figures don't lie!



211
Lampard overtook Bobby Tambling as Chelsea’s leading scorer in 2013 after netting a two beautiful goals against Aston Villa to surpass the great Bobby's tally of 202. He left the Bridge a year later having extended that record.

11
Lampard’s collections of major trophies as a Blue is surpassed by few: one Champions League, three Premier League titles, four FA Cups, two League Cups, one Europa League.

That Champions League trophy came on an memorable night in Munich. Having already become the first Chelsea player to score in the final of the competition, when Chelsea lost the 2008 edition to Manchester United, he then became the first man to captain them to the trophy.


648
Only John Terry, Peter Bonetti and Ron Harris have made more Chelsea appearances than Frank. That he brought up his tally in just 13 years is simply wonderful

164
Of course , he was aided by a streak of four years without missing a Premier League game between October 2001 and December 2005, which is a record for any outfield player.

50
Chelsea won their first top-flight title in 50 years when Lamps brace at Bolton helped them to the victory which secured the Premier League in 2004 05.

303
As well as all of his goals for Chelsea, he found the back of the net 29 times for England and was also on target for West Ham United, Manchester City and New York City to surpass the 300-goal mark in his  memorable career.

Mr Eazi apologises to Nigerians after backlash On Twitter






Mr. Eazi, has apologised to Nigerian fans on Twitter for saying that present day Nigerian music was influenced by Ghanaian music.
His apology was contained in a tweet which read, “Just got a call, my fam in Imeko are doing family meeting to deport me to Ghana. Abeg my Naija people no vex.”
The Afrobeat singer recently moved to Nigeria having lived in Ghana since 2007.
Although Nigerian music is a major force in Africa, “the new bounce is Ghana”, he said.
“Ghana’s influence on present day “Naija Sound” cannot be over emphasized. Naija music is & has been a major force affecting the entire African scene. Quality, riddim, business,” the artiste tweeted on Wednesday.
Currently trending nationwide on Twitter and the butt of jokes, the artiste whose real name is Oluwatosin Ajibade, earlier appeared not bothered by the barrage of insults and backlash he received on Twitter after putting up the tweet.
Here are some of the backlashes he received on Twitter.
A user, @mrafobeatz, tweeted, “It’s like Mr. Eazi’s village witches have started following him on Twitter.”
@joekakan wrote, “Mr Eazi has bad table manners. Don’t talk while you are eating.”
@BosaLin, wrote, “Mr Eazi is an average Nigerian artiste that got overhyped No where near the Sound god, I tried to listen I didn’t vibe.”
While the singer who was recently crowned the Headies Next Rated Artiste and Soundcity MVP‘s Best New Act, was bashed for his statement, some key industry figures rose to his defense.
Ovie Ofugara, co-owner of NotJustOk and Oladotun Ojuolape Kayode, Cool FM on-air-personality and hype man, both agreed that Nigerian sound is heavily influenced by Ghanaian music.
Ovie noted that Mr. Eazi didn’t say anything far-fetched nor was his assertion off the mark, noting that it is “what some industry folks have been saying behind the scenes”.
An internationally performing artist, he is signed on with Wizkid’s StarBoy Worldwide label. He has collaborated with famous names in the Ghanaian music industry, such as Sarkodie, Efya, and Pappy Kojo.

Mr. Eazi attacked on twitter for tweeting that Ghana influenced Nigerian music[READ]




Mr. Eazi, has incurred the wrath of Nigerian music fans after stating that present day Nigerian sound was influenced by Ghanaian music.

The Afrobeat singer recently moved to Nigeria having lived in Ghana since 2007.
Although Nigerian music is a major force in Africa, “the new bounce is Ghana,” he said.
“Ghana’s influence on present day “Naija Sound” cannot be over emphasized. Naija music is & has been a major force affecting the entire African scene. Quality, riddim, business,” the artiste tweeted on Wednesday.

Currently trending nationwide on Twitter and the butt of jokes, the artiste whose real name is Oluwatosin Oluwole Ajibade, appears not bothered by the barrage of insults and backlash he has been receiving on Twitter after putting up a seemingly ‘innocent’ tweet.
His tweets read, “Ghana’s influence on present day “Naija Sound” cannot be over emphasized!!!
“Ask your favourite artiste or producer all na akaida! does not in any way undermine the awesomeness of Naija at some point The SA vibe was major.”
“Same way Dancehall bin influencing Global sounds!!!!”

“So if I say Drake’s 1 dance was heavy on West African sound influence am i wrong? Does that change the fact that both Drake & the Music is “

“9ja Music is & has been a major force affecting the entire African scene! Quality, riddim, business etc! Dat d new bounce is GH changes nada”

“Finally finally African Music is at a great place! The African sound East, West, South, Central, North is going global.”

His statement drew anger and criticism from some twitter users.
“It’s like Mr. Eazi’s village witches have started following him on Twitter,” @mrafobeatz, tweeted. “

“Mr Eazi has bad table manners. Don’t talk while you are eating,” @joekakan wrote.

Read the full letter below; 


[LAUTECH]RE- NOTICE ON RESUMPTION (full details)

Lautech to Reopen 



The attention of the Authorities of the University has been drawn to a publication (purportedly issued from the Office of the Registrar) circulating on the social media, directing students to resume on Monday, January 9, 2017. The general public, particularly our dear students, their parents and guardians are hereby informed that the publication is false and the directive therein should be ignored.

Meanwhile, the University wishes to assure all concerned that the University will, by the grace of God, reopen before the end of January, 2017, as concerted efforts, at all levels, are being made to that effect. The patience and understating exhibited hitherto by all stakeholders, especially our beloved students, are well appreciated.

On behalf of the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Adeniyi S. Gbadegesin, He wish all lautech students the best.

UNIOSUN VC’s Press Conference on Student Default in the Payment of School Fees

Osun State University, UNIOSUN Vice Chancellor’s press conference on the student default in the payment of school fees.



The University has decided to call this press conference to educate and enlighten the stakeholders in particular and the public in general about the financial position of the Osun State University.

Osun State University, being a public institution, is financed from grants from the State Government and she also heavily relies on school fees from its students and other internally generated revenues.

It would be recalled that the State Government under the leadership of Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, when he came on board, reduced the school fees.

I wish to confirm that the University has not increased its school fees despite the economic recession. The University remains one of the few State owned institutions that charge modest fees. In all matters concerning our students, their interests remain our paramount consideration.

Meanwhile, I wish to let the public know the current amount being charged since 2011:

Programmes Amount per session Freshers
Science N100,000.00 N110,000
Law (including Nursing Science) N125,000.00 N135,000
Non-Science N95,000.00 N105,000

Acceptance fee – N40,000
Admission Checker – N2,000
Medical Fee – N15,000
Matriculation fee – N5,000
Late registration fee is N10,000 per semester

From the table above, it can be seen that the highest school fee for staylite is one hundred and twenty five thousand naira (N125,000.00) in a session for law and nursing science students; whereas there are some private secondary schools in Osun State that charge about N150,000 and above per term.

It is, however, disheartening to note that the University has discovered that despite the fact that the University operates an enviable stable academic calendar, mobilizes its graduating students Youth Service without delay, many of our students still owe school fees running to two billion naira. If this trend continues, there is no way the University could perform its financial responsibilities.

Henceforth, Senate at its meeting has approved the implementation of the following guidelines:

(i) that all students who fail to register will no longer be allowed into lecture rooms and will not be allowed to write examination;
(ii) that only students who fulfil the requirement would be allowed to write examination;
(iii) that the policy of 70% attendance at lectures for students will be strictly enforced;
(iv) that new students are to pay school fees in full and on time for retention of their studentship;
(v) that names of defaulters will be published soon.

All parents and guardians are hereby advised to warn their children and wards to pay their fees on time and not to divert their school fees to other areas.

Magistrates  in the Osun State Judiciary have said they may boycott sittings in all Magistrates Courts across the state due to the alleged threats to their lives and the refusal of the Commissioner of Police in the state to arrest and bring the Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi, before the court.

The magistrates, under the Magistrates’ Association of Nigeria, Osun State branch said this  in a letter dated January 4th, 2017 and addressed to the Chief Judge of Osun State, Justice Adepele Ojo.

A source within the judiciary made a copy of the letter written through the Chief Registrar to the CJ  available to our correspondent in Osogbo on Thursday.

The protest letter was signed by the chairman of the Magistrates’ Association of Nigeria, Osun State branch, Ms. F.A Sodamade; secretary, Mr. F.I. Omisade; Mrs. A.O. Oyeniyi; Mr. J.O. Owolawi; Mr. A.O Ayilara and Mrs. A.O Ajanaku.

The letter read in part, “We therefore humbly seek Your Lordship’s attention, protection and response in the following ways:
An urgent directive to the Commissioner of Police to arrest and present for prosecution the Oluwo of Iwo.

“An urgent order  directing the commissioner of police to provide each magistrate with armed personal orderlies as done in other jurisdiction.

” We humbly state that with the prevalent threat to the security of magistrates as exemplified in the events in Iwo and Osogbo, we consider our lives unsafe and may be unable to continue sitting in our various stations, which may affect us entertaining any new charge from the office of the Commissioner of Police until the commissioner of police has complied with Your Lordship’s directives.”

The Oluwo Oke of Iwo Oke, Oba Kadiri Adeoye, had instituted a case against Oba Akanbi before the court but the Oluwo has refused to appear  before the Magistrates’ Court presided over by Mr. Olusola Aluko.

Aluko  had on December 2 threatened to issue a bench warrant against the Oluwo if he failed to appear before him on December 20th but the monarch spurned the threat.

The magistrate then issued a bench warrant against the monarch on Decemebr 20 but the monarch said he would not appear before the magistrate.

Aluko also issued a fresh bench warrant against the monarch on Wednesday for contempt of court but the monarch still did not appear.

The magistrate later gave an order directing the CP to arrest and produce Oluwo in court on Friday ( tomorrow).It is not likely that the CP has  arrested the monarch.

[Latest] Accidental gunshot in Aso Rock injured two people. [check]



An accidental discharge from a gun of one of the security agents attached to the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Wednesday, injured a female worker.

The incident occurred at about 2.30pm at a security checkpoint at the Administrative Reception near a clinic, located on the premises.

The operative was said to be trying to empty the weapon before submitting it at the security point when the bullet went off.

The operative and the female worker, who was also making her way into the premises at the time, were injured in the process.

The woman, who sustained injuries on her abdomen, back and thigh, was quickly taken to the clinic for first aid treatment.

She was thereafter driven to the State House Medical Centre in Asokoro for further medical attention.

She was said to be in a stable condition at the time of filing this report.

That was the second time such an incident would happen in the Presidential Villa in the last one year.

On February 23, 2016, a security operative, attached to the delegation of the Danish Foreign Affairs Minister, Mr. Kristian Jensen, who visited Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, was said to have attempted to pass through the last security checkpoint with his weapon.

Based on the rules, security men, attached to the same Administrative Reception, where the last screening always takes place, were said to have told him that he could not go beyond the point with his weapon.

In the process of submitting the weapon to operatives, the gun went off.

The incident occurred shortly after Jensen, who was accompanied by the Ambassador of Denmark to Nigeria, Mr. Torben Gettermann, and other Danish embassy officials, scaled through the last security checkpoint.

Police raid Patience Jonathan’s house in Abuja[FULL DETAILS]


Some men of the Nigeria Police Force on Wednesday in Abuja raided the home of the wife of former President Patience Jonathan, Patience.

The building is located along Igbeti Rock Street, Maitama.

It was gathered that, apart from the private security guards, no other person was within the premises when the policemen arrived.

More than 20 policemen, who came in three Hilux vans and a  Toyota Hiace Bus, were said to have forced themselves into the building.

They were said to have broken into the building and went away with a brown envelope.

A source, who witnessed the incident, told one of our correspondents that the heavily armed policemen were brief in their operation.

The source said, “Men of the Nigerian Police Force raided the home of the former First Lady, Patience today (Wednesday).

“A reporter from one of the television stations, who witnessed the event, was harassed by security officers and her phone seized.

“The operation which took place at the Igbeti Rock Street started at about 5pm.

“The policemen came in four vehicles and they also took away one hefty brown envelope. They didn’t speak to us on why they came and the content of the envelope.”

It was gathered that the raid might not be unconnected with the former President’s wife’s N9bn frozen account and other allegations relating to money laundering.

Earlier on Wednesday,   there was confusion over the house that was raided by security agencies as some people said it was raided by the operatives of the EFCC.

But the EFCC said that it did not raid the residence of former President Goodluck Jonathan anywhere in the country.

The  commission’s spokesperson,  Mr. Wilson Uwujaren,  stated this in an interview with one of our correspondents.

Reacting, Mrs. Jonathan said the house that was searched by the police was her family house, adding that nothing incriminating was found after the search.

The former President’s wife, who spoke through her lawyer, Mr. Charles Ogboli, explained that three cheque books, including one from Diamond Bank, were taken away from the premises.

She noted that contrary to a report in an online medium, it was the police that  searched her house and not the EFCC.

Mrs. Jonathan stated that the leader of the team he met on the ground explained that though they did not set out to search the family house of the former first lady, the security man’s attitude forced them to do so.

She described as embarrassing a situation where a security outfit would search a building in the absence of the occupant.

“EFCC came last year and conducted a search in the absence of the occupant of the house. The NDLEA also searched the same building. This also happened last year between November or thereabouts. It is an embarrassment.

“I don’t know what they are actually looking for. Why are they searching a premises in the absence of the occupant? It appears there is something they want to do there,” Mrs. Jonathan added.

According to her, “Today, it was not EFCC, but in the past, from November 2016, EFCC raided the place. It is a family house meant for the brothers and sisters; the siblings. It is a family house of the former First Lady in Maitama, Abuja.

“EFCC raided the place last year. Thereafter, NDLEA raided the place and throughout their raid, they found nothing incriminating. Today, I got information that there were several policemen numbering about 20 to 28 of them.

“So, when I got there, I demanded to see the leader of the team and I was directed to an Assistant Commissioner of Police, who was in mufti and known as Williams. I asked him which of the command are you from and he said they were from IG’s Special Unit. Somebody also in mufti intervened and said they are from the AGF, Attorney General’s office

“He told me that they came to search the house of a judge, but because of the attitude of the security man, they decided to now move into the house (Patience Jonathan’s family building) and search the house.

“They forced the door open and searched everything. At the end, they asked the security man to sign that nothing incriminating was found. They took away three cheque books and a company iron seal. The company seal does not belong to the former first lady because she is not staying there. The company is not known to the first lady.”

Osun Baby Of The Year: Osun Welcome a new baby on January 1[details


Father of the baby of the year in Osun, Mr Kajogbola Olasunkanmi, has accused the Osun State General Hospital, Asubiaro, Osogbo for short-changing the family, even as he confirmed the receipt of N15,000 (Fifteen Thousand Naira) gift and other baby items from the wife of the Governor, Mrs Sherifat Aregbesola.

Olasunkanmi, who spoke on Wednesday in Osogbo said the management of the hospital gave only water flask and 5kg rice to them out of the many gifts brought for the baby of the year, including cash, by the Lions Club of Nigeria.

He expressed disappointment over the alleged fraud perpetrated by the management of the hospital, saying such anomaly was unbecoming of a public institution.

“It is very unfortunate that the public institution, which ordinarily should uphold high level of truth and integrity is found wanting of social vice of this dimension and magnitude.

” As we appreciate the wife of the governor for her kind gesture, we are not happy over the attitudes of the management of Asubiaro hospital. It is highly unacceptable, and we demand that those behind this fraud be brought to book.

“My mother-in-law, who was with my wife at the time when Lions’ Club came with the gift confirmed that the charity organisation brought many gifts for the baby of the year, out of which the hospital released 5kg of rice and water flask,” Olasunkanmi stressed.

DAILY POST recalls that the first child of the year in Osun was delivered around 12:01am on Sunday to the family of Mr Olasunkami Kajogbola and Mrs Kemi Kajogbola.

All efforts to get the reaction of the hospital management over the issue proved abortive as nurses at the reception continued to express ignorance on the whereabouts of the Medical Director.

Donald Trump Promises ‘New Revelations’ On Russian Hacking


Trump who expressed lingering skepticism about intelligence assessments of Russian interference in the election.

U.S. President-elect Donald Trump says that he knew “things that other people don’t know” about the Russian hacking.

He promised that the information would be revealed “on Tuesday or Wednesday”.

Speaking outside his Palm Beach, Florida club, Mar-a-Lago during the New Year party, Trump who expressed lingering skepticism about intelligence assessments of Russian interference in the election, cast his declarations of doubt as an effort to seek the truth.

“I just want them to be sure because it’s a pretty serious charge,” Trump said of the intelligence agencies, according to reports.

“If you look at the weapons of mass destruction, that was a disaster, and they were wrong,” he added, referring to intelligence cited by the George W. Bush administration to support its march to war in 2003.

“So I want them to be sure,” the president-elect said. “I think it’s unfair if they don’t know.”

He added: “And I know a lot about hacking. And hacking is a very hard thing to prove. So it could be somebody else. And I also know things that other people don’t know, and so they cannot be sure of the situation.”

When asked what he knew that others did not, Trump demurred, saying only: “You’ll find out on Tuesday or Wednesday”.

The incoming president, who does not use email, also advised people to avoid computers when dealing with delicate material.

“It’s very important, if you have something really important, write it out and have it delivered by courier, the old-fashioned way, because I’ll tell you what, no computer is safe,” Trump warned.

“I don’t care what they say, no computer is safe,” he added. “I have a boy who’s 10 years old; he can do anything with a computer. You want something to really go without detection, write it out and have it sent by courier.”

The comments were a departure from a statement that Trump issued through transition officials last week, in which he said that it was time for people to “move on’’ from the hacking issue but that he would be briefed on the matter by intelligence officials early in the new year.

On Thursday, President Barack Obama ordered a set of retaliatory measures against Russia over the election hacking, including expelling 35 Russian diplomats and shuttered two estates that it claimed had been used for intelligence-gathering.

The Russian President, Vladimir Putin, declined to respond in kind to the measures, a gesture that Trump appeared to view favourably.

The president-elect praised Putin’s action on Twitter and criticised media coverage that had been harsh about Russia.

Trump, who has sought a warmer relationship with Putin, has repeatedly scoffed at the notion that Russia was behind the hacking, a stance at odds with members of his own party.

At one point, the incoming president declared that the hacking may have been the work of “someone sitting on their bed weighing 400 pounds”.

Bobrisky Reportedly Set To Marry US Man (details)


Bobrisky gets a serious admirer all the way from America who wants to marry him.

Famous cross dresser Bobrisky has found himself more than a serious crush.

Today, Tuesday, January 2, 2017, self-acclaimed relationship expert Joro Olumofin shared a mail he received from the United States of America.

In the mail, the American man whose name was not revealed proclaimed his undying love for Bobrisky and said that Nigeria is not ready for him.

The unidentified 35 year-old man also said he is willing to take Bobrisky to America and marry him. “I want to bring him to the US and marry him.”

“I’m addicted to his Snapchat, the way he whine (sic) his waste (sic) my God!” the love struck man further wrote.

The man in question revealed he sent Bobrisky a message on Instagram which he replied to, but since then Bobrisky hasn’t paid much attention to him.

In November, Bobrisky revealed that he is not keen on sex and women.

“I am not a womaniser but that does not mean I can’t get down with a woman. One man’s food is another man’s poison. I am not the type who really loves sex or women. It takes a while for me to get into relationships. I went to a boarding school so I have been trained to be indoor.

“You hardly see me everywhere which makes it difficult to really be into women. I am only popular because God wants me to. I hardly attend parties or grant interviews. I didn’t struggle to be out there. Some habits are peculiar to men like drinking, smoking etc.” he said in an interview with Vanguard.

Concerning his relationship status, the cross dresser finally disclosed that he is indeed in a relationship with a lady currently in London.”My girlfriend is in London and she has been calling me to know the situation of things.”

Bobrisky, who hails from a Muslim family has also disclosed that practicing Islam would have been a problem for him if he was still actively involved in it.
