Award-winning blogger and twitter influencer Bhadmus Hakeem @Bhadoosky has been arrested following the revelation of a school’s misdemeanour.
According to his allegations, a school Great Cornerstone International Science College, Arigidi Akoko, Ondo state, which collects N104,000 per term stated how much 24 students owed in their school magazine. This amount, put at five thousand naira, was meant to be used to purchase the school’s 32 inches television.
Read his account below:
What would you do if you find out your child’s name was printed on his/her school’s send forth magazine as “Debtor” because he/she didn’t pay N5000 to buy the school a parting gift? A school you were paying N104,000 per term for six years? Thread
Yesterday (20/7/2018), a school named “Great Cornerstone International Science College, Arigidi Akoko, Ondo state, decided to throw over 24 parents & their children into sorrow on a day they should be the most joyous because they didn’t pay N5000 to buy the school “32 inches TV”.
On a graduation day, the worst thing you can ever do to a parent and child is make them sad and also document their sadness forever. How do you explain unprofessionalism of this magnitude to people? What were the school management trying to achieve with this stupidity?1 of 10
And as you know, fingers are not equal, a student that could pay 104,000 naira as tuition for a term is now being ridiculed in magazine that can reach the end of the planet because of 5k parting gift
Imagine putting this out for the whole world to see. Meanwhile, those that payed part of the money, there names and amount paid were equally written out. How petty can a school owned by learned people be? What history are they trying to make?
Meanwhile, each student paid N15,000 for bespoke suits from the school. A low standard suits produced to make money off parents. Are schools suppose to melt out punishment on parents who work round the clock to pay these humongous amount of money?
And when Mr Austin Duyi (+2347066621124), the school administrator was called to ask why this was done, all he could say was that the students didnt meet up with school request, hence they printed their names out. No apologies. No remorse. No human feelings. No sense whatsoever
At a point during the graduation, the graduating students were given bowls to go get money from the audience. How can you be so mad about making money that you turned kids to Bambiala Children and still shamed them by announcing the amounts each student got from begging?
These Private school owners need to be called to order. Parents can’t be paying huge amount and all you will be doing is insult them with damaging actions. Government needs to start checking the excesses. Imagine a school in Ondo state, not Lagos state paying N104,000 per term.
Without prejudice, some things are wrong and should never be heard. This is beyond me. Maybe I’m overreacting on behalf of the parents or the innocent children. I don’t know. I just believe this is a total nonsense. Parents & children were crying when they should be rejoicing
I found their social media info. Will be useful moving forward. Facebook address: http://facebook.com/greatcornerstoneintlsciencecollege … & website http://www.greatcornerstoneschools.com ))
Mr Austin Duyi, the school administrator (facebook name: http://Facebook.com/Austineduyi ).
Thank you all for lending your voices. God bless
He stated that after revealing this information, the school harassed and detained his friend who gave him the information. He notes that she was not released until the ASUU (Academic Staff Union of Universities) in Federal University of Technology Akure (FUTA) intervened.
Today, he tweeted that his wife called him to rush to the University of Ibadan gate without telling him why. Upon arrival, he was asked by policemen posing as men from Agodi Gate Area command to follow them without stating the reason for the arrest. Rather than head to the command, they made a turn to Mokola station, Ibadan. It was at Mokola station that they made reference to the story as the reason for his arrest and accused him of “threatening & harassing the school admin on phone” before heading to the “Anti-Kidnapping office, governor’s office”, Akure, Ondo state. It was at Mokola station that they made reference to the story as the reason for his arrest and accused him of “threatening & harassing the school admin on phone.”
Meanwhile, Babajide Fadoju (Special Adviser to the Governor of Oyo State, Governor Abiola Ajimobi) has said that he met the absence of Hakeem when he got to the station despite pleas from the Divisional Crime Office (DCO) in Oyo State to settle the case in Oyo. According to him, the policemen who arrested Hakeem got “documents of authorisation” to arrest him.
Fadoju has promised to look into the case.
