The management of the University of Lagos has suspended all academic activities on the campus.
A statement on Friday said the decision was reached at a meeting of the university senate.
It said, “The Senate of the University of Lagos, at an emergency meeting on Thursday, April 7, 2016, considered the situation on campus occasioned by the ongoing agitation of the student body over poor electricity and water supply in the community, and the difficulty faced by a large number of students living off campus to attend classes as a result of the fuel crisis.
“Senate noted that the problem of poor municipal services is a national issue that governments at both state and federal levels are addressing.
“However, in order to forestall a further breakdown of law and order on campus, Senate resolved to take the following decisions until the situation normalises: All academic activities on campus are hereby suspended with immediate effect. The university is therefore closed with immediate effect.”
The statement ordered that students living on the campus should vacate their halls of residence, adding that no student should remain in the halls of residence after 10a.m on Friday.
During a visit to the campus, Saturday PUNCH observed that no fewer than 15 police vans and two armoured tanks barricaded the two major roads leading to the school.
The school main gate was shut as scores of students were prevented from going out by some of the student leaders, who insisted that the school was not closed.
Some of the undergraduates, however, began scaling the fence and sneaking through the opening under the gate in desperate bids to get out.
Later, the students opened the gate and said those who wanted to leave could do so.
The President of the University of Lagos Students Union, Mohammed Olaniyan, said the management ordered the police to arrest him and the school’s Public Relations Officer, Jumai Fabuyi, without any reason.
While Olaniyan was said to have been rough-handled and his phones seized, Fabuyi was said to have been beaten and injured in the hand by the police.
The ULSU president said the protest, which started on Wednesday, was peaceful, adding that the students were surprised when they saw the police and armoured tanks at the school’s gate.
He said, “We started the protest on Wednesday at 2pm at the amphitheatre and we moved round the school. We went to see the Dean of Students Affairs, and then to the Senate House to see the Vice Chancellor. There were some issues we had been asking the management to talk about, but they had been running away.
“When we were not attended to on Wednesday, we continued on Thursday morning. The congressmen and women asked to see the VC, that if I could not answer their questions, then the VC should address them. We moved round again and the management failed to attend to us.
“The issue of power is a national challenge and it does not affect UNILAG alone. We are aware of this. But we have questioned the management of the school on generators. There are four spaces for generators on the campus, but we only have two that provide 30 per cent of power to the school. We asked about the two remaining generators and why they had not been moved in after they had been paid for since December, 2015. But we didn’t get any answer.
“On the issue of water, we have UNILAG Venture that produces UNILAG bread and UNILAG water. A bag of pure water on campus is N200, whereas we buy outside for N100. The UNILAG bread is N250, but we buy outside for N200. We asked questions from the school management why other people are not allowed to bring in water and bread. But the school refused to answer us. We say no to monopoly.”
The student leader said the school was not closed, urging his colleagues to return to school on Monday.
But the UNILAG Public Relations Officer, Toyin Adebule, said the students’ claims were false, adding that the university planned to have its press conference to address the issues.
He said, “It is a lie. All they said is not true. We will have our press conference soon where the Dean of Students Affairs will address all the issues. You will be briefed on it soon.”
A four-year-old girl identified only as Choice, has revealed how she was allegedly raped by the proprietor of her school, Mr. Elias Oyeke.
The little girl told one of our correspondents that 42-year-old Oyeke, who is the Proprietor of Victory International School, Mararba, Nasarawa State, raped her on several occasions and then told her not to tell anyone or she would get into trouble.
Choice, who is a nursery one pupil, said Oyeke told her that if her parents found out that she had lost her virginity, she should tell them that it was her male colleague who is also four-years-old that was responsible.
The victim said, “Uncle Elias spread my legs, covered my mouth and told me to shut up. He will (sic) put me on a chair and lap me and he will start doing it. He will (sic) then give me sweets.”
The mother of the victim, Esther, said she started suspecting something was amiss when her daughter insisted that she would not allow anyone to bathe her sometime in February.
Esther said one day, she insisted that she would bathe her and that was when she discovered severe injuries around Choice’s private parts.
She said her daughter initially lied that it was her classmate, Gabriel, that forcefully penetrated her and so she took her daughter to the school the next day.
While fighting back tears, Esther said, “I usually dropped my daughter at school around between 7am and 7.25am, before school resumed proper and I always handed her over to Mr. Elias. However, after some time, my daughter started behaving strangely as she prevented me from bathing her.
“I didn’t know that she was acting under the instructions of Elias. One day, I insisted that I must bathe her so I forced her legs open and while I was washing there, she started crying and screaming in pain.
“When her father got back, I opened her private part and saw that it was wide and very red. I knew that she could not have sustained such an injury at home so I took her to the school the next morning to confront Mr. Elias. Elias began to shake but denied knowledge of what happened.”
Esther said Elias urged her not to tell anyone so as not to tarnish the image of his school and then took them to a pharmacy.
Esther added, “On getting to the pharmacy, we were told that it was impossible for a four-year-old boy to do such damage to the girl’s private part. At the pharmacy, I kept on asking my daughter who injured her but she would just look at Elias and keep quiet.
“Then, I began to suspect that he knew something. I then took my daughter away and asked her to tell me the truth. She finally confessed that it was the school proprietor that had been raping her.
“Choice said Elias started by putting his fingers in her vagina. She said anytime it was time for break, Elias would take her to the school’s backyard, take off her pants, put her on a chair and start having sex with her. He usually gave her sweets. After doing it, he cleaned her up with a red handkerchief.”
It was learnt that the victim was subsequently taken to two hospitals where it was confirmed that she had been defiled.
A copy of the doctor’s report signed by Dr.Nwabueze Daniel of the Nyanya General Hospital, read in part, “On vaginal examination of the four-year-old girl, there is a sign of penetration as the hymen is not intact. It is a case of rape.”
The father of the victim, Pedro, who is a security guard, said he reported the matter at the Mararba Police Station.
He, however, said he was not satisfied with the manner the police handled the matter as the suspect was released on bail before he was re-arrested and taken to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Lafia.
Speaking with journalists at his Abuja office, the lawyer of the family, Mr. S. O Onoja (SAN), called on the police authorities to transfer the case to the Office of the Inspector-General of Police’s Monitoring Unit, Abuja.
Onoja said it was unfortunate that policemen could demand money from his client despite being the victim. He also urged the Nasarawa government to shut the school immediately.
The Police Public Relation Officer, Nasarawa state police command, ASP IsmailaUmaruNuman, on Friday confirmed the incident in a telephone interview.
“The command is aware of the case and the suspect had since been charged to court for prosecution and after which he was remanded in Lafia prison,” he added.
