Armed Robbers Matchete Guard, Rob Uniosun Students (ikire campus)

Armed Robbers Matchete Guard, Rob Uniosun Students (ikire campus)
A group of armed robbers attacked students of Osun State University in Ikire campus. It is a black Saturday in Ikire when the Armed men bulged into three hostels in different hostels of Ikire. The hostels are Civilian Barrack, Hollywood and an unnamed hostel adjacent to Hangover hostel.

Civilian Barrack Hostel
The robbery was staged on July 7, 2018 and started around 2a.m. we got details about the scenes to gather information about the sad incidents.
While he was speaking with one of the victims in Civilian Barrack Hostel, she told our correspondent that the Armed robbers entered around 2a.m with guns and cutlases.
“They opened our burglary like a door. They beat Alfa and matcheted the security guard of our hostel. It was a great shock for us. They robbed over four rooms in our hostel and they carted away phones, laptops and money”; she lamented.
Civilian Barrack
It was gathered that the security guard in Civilian Barracks who is nicknamed Baba CB had a rough encounter with the robbers. Baba CB was beaten and matcheted with Cutlass. His head was cut with cutlass.we were unable to reach the man because of his critical condition in the hospital that remains unrevealed to public.
Another male victim who claims anonymous narrated his ordeal with the robbers. He said that he came outside and shockingly met the robbers. He said he cooperated with them and they locked him inside the gateman room which was firstly robbed. Students who stay in the same street said they were startled when they heard the sounds of gun that sounded like bomb.
Following this robbery,we got to the second scene which is Hollywood hostel. The Armed robbers removed the buglary with big block. They shot the hostel GYM instructor on his leg. The gym instructor whom they said is not a student of UNIOSUN, survived the attack and currently undergoing treatments.
Hollywood Hostel
“I was in the toilet when I heard someone banging my door around 3a.m. They broke my buglary and entered to open the door for other armed robbers. One of the robbers entered the toilet and collected my phone. He requested for my password. They carted away our phones and laptops. But we thank God our life is intact.” – she narrated.
Hollywood hostel
A 200level student identified as Sola showed us the marks of the cutlass on his stomach. He said he left a concert around 3a.m and he got to his hostel at Mateba area. He was in the room when the robbers entered and started smashing him with cutlass but graciously and suprisingly to him, the cutlass did not enter him but rather left him marks.
“They collected my three smartphones and went away with a fifteen thousand naira that I withdrew yesterday. ” – Sola added.
Hostel at Mateba area
The atmospheric situation in Ikire at the present moment has therefore become tensed as students keep lamenting over the robbery issues

BREAKING: JAMB Releases National Cut-Off Marks for 2018 Admissions into Universities

Reports reaching us suggests that JAMB has upgraded the Cut-Off Marks for Admissions into tertiary institutions as follows; Universities – 140, Polytechnics – 120, Colleges – 100, Institutes – 110.

 

Please continue reading to see implications of this below.

 

There’s absolutely no need to panic about the upgrade in cut-off marks. As we reported earlier, the schools are absolutely responsible for releasing the final cut-off marks for taking Post-UTME in the institution. This information will be released as the school is releasing information about their post-UTME.

 

This however means that no school will be able to take any candidate, who scores below the minimum JAMB score as categorised above.

The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) Council Head of Public Affairs, Damianus Ojijeogu during an interview on Saturday disclosed that the results of the 2018 WASSCE for School Candidates will be released in 45 days.

 

The council, he said, was satisfied with the conduct of the just concluded examination for school candidates nationwide.

 

The WASSCE for school candidates commenced on March 27, 2018 and was concluded on May 15, 2018.

 

Below was the speech made by WAEC

 

“We are indeed happy that the examination was conducted in a hitch-free manner. Right now, we have commenced coordination, briefing and subsequently, marking,” he said.

 

“We are looking at releasing the results in 45 days or earlier than that time.

 

“It has been the commitment of the council to always give quality service delivery in line with the head of the national office, Olu Adenipekun’s promise to reduce the waiting days from 90 days to 45 days.”

 

Ojijeogu said technology had been deployed to some marking venues to assist in scanning the scripts.

 

He said that this would facilitate the marking of the scripts and impact positively in the early release of the results.

 

The council had also said it has deployed technology that would help detect malpractice in its objective questions.

 

From the report above, we at 360trendies.com can guarantee all students that their results will be released first week of July. The exact date will be communicated to candidates and the general public later.

The Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, Prof Ishaq Oloyede, has said that 414,696 candidates, out of the 1,603,181 who sat for the 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, scored above 200.

The figure, according to him, translates to 25. 09 per cent.

This is against the 465,025 (27.00 per cent) of the 1, 606, 374 who scored above 200 in 2017.

The JAMB boss, however, said that 558, 673 candidates scored above 190; 739,490 above 180 and 956, 937 above 170 marks.

He revealed this on Tuesday during the Policy Meeting held at the newly inaugurated Bola Babalakin Auditorium in Gbongan, Osun State.

The 2,400-capacity centre was built by the Chairman of Bi-Courtney Group of Companies, Dr Wale Babalakin.

At the programme attended by the state Governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, and the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, among many other top players in the education sector, Oloyede, however, warned that scores released by JAMB were not the cut-off marks.

According to him, they are the minimum marks required while the cut-off marks are arrived at from the cumulative consideration of candidates’ scores or grades.

He added on other regulations guiding the process, “Every candidate is required to accept or reject his/her admission before the process is said to be completed.

“Candidates can now protest their admission status should they feel they are not fairly treated.”

Speaking at the event, Adamu urged authorities of higher institutions to work with JAMB to sanitise admission process in the country.

BREAKING:- FG Scraps HND Certificate (See The New Updates)

The FG has scrapped Award of HND Certificates by Polytechnics.

The decision was reached at the Federal Executive Council, FEC, on Wednesday where the approval of a comprehensive reform of Nigeria’s tertiary education system was made.

In effect, the award of HND will be limited to only the students currently admitted for the programmes. Also, all the programmes currently being run by polytechnics, which are not technology-based, and which are about 70%, will be scrapped.

Under the new rule, the polytechnics will now become campuses of the proximate universities with the Vice Chancellors of those universities appointing provosts for the polytechnics, subject to the ratification of the Universities Councils.

The polytechnics will now be limited to award of the National Diploma (ND) while those desirous of further education will be awarded the Bachelor of Technology (B. Tech) by the proximate university.

To kick-start the new policy, the nation’s two most prominent polytechnics – Yaba College of Technology and Kaduna Polytechnic – will henceforth be known as City University of Technology, Yaba and City University of Technology, Kaduna.

A total of 54 students graduated with first class degree certificates in the 2016/2017 academic session of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Anambra State.

Vice Chancellor of the University, Prof. Joseph Eberendu Ahaneku, made the disclosure, on Monday, in his office during the press conference to herald activities lined up this week to mark the 12th Convocation Ceremony of the University.

Ahaneku also disclosed that a total of 7731 graduands will be taking part in the convocation ceremony with a breakdown showing that 6641 graduands are for first degrees, 190 for Post Graduate Diplomas, 674 for Masters of Science degrees and 227 for Doctorate degrees.

He disclosed that the 12th Convocation of the University is the third in his administration aimed at maintaining the core values and real tradition of university tradition where students are admitted and also graduated annually.

“What this means is that we have started the core values and real tradition of the University system. Before this time, many Universities have backlog of years without convocation but those of us who are managers of Universities converged in Keffi, Nassarawa State, in 2011 and resolved that as we admit students into the university system, we hold orientation and matriculation for them and as the students graduate, we also organize the graduation ceremony known as Convocation.

“That is the joy and beauty of mentorship and the essence of being in the university because there should be a distinction between a student that graduates and those who don’t,” he said…

The West African Examination Council has announced the results of the first series of the new diet of the West African Senior School Certificate Examination for Private Candidates in Nigeria.

Announcing the results at the Lagos headquarters of the council in Yaba on Tuesday, the Head of the Nigeria Office, Mr. Isaac Adenipekun, said out of the 11,307 candidates that sat the examination between January 29 and February 12, 2018, 1,937 candidates, representing 17.13 per cent, obtained a minimum of credits in five subjects and above, including English Language and Mathematics.

Adenipekun also said the results of 1,021 candidates, representing 9.03 per cent of the total candidature for the examination, were being withheld in connection with various reported cases of examination malpractice.

“The cases are being investigated and reports of the investigations will be presented to the appropriate Committee of the Council in due course for consideration.

“The Committee’s decisions will be communicated to the affected candidates,” he said.

Describing the conduct of the First Series of the additional diet for private candidates as a success in Nigeria, he expressed the hope that it would reduce pressures on the conduct of the WASSCE for school candidates, address the do-or-die attitude of some candidates and thereby, reduce their tendency for involvement in examination malpractice in the long run.

Unilorin Reacts to ASUU’s Terrorist organization Remarks

Following remarks by the Academic Staff Union of Universities who called the school a terrorist organization, Unilorin has responded saying such statements are false and unfortunate.

Recall that the school was called a terrorist organisation by Dr. Ayodeji Omole who is the chairman of the University of Ibadan chapter of ASUU after the school terminated the contract of Dr. Kayode Afolayan, ASUU chairman of the school.

Responding in a statement, Unilorin through their Head, Corporate Affairs, Mr. Kunle Akogun have refuted this claim.

Akogun said: “This is unfortunate, especially coming from someone who is expected to know the gravity of such appellation.


MOST VIEWED: ASUU Declares Univeristy of ILorin (UNILORIN) as a Terrorist Organisation


“While the university is not ready to join issues with this fellow, who appears hell bent to drag the good names that Unilorin has made for itself over the years in the mud, we want to make it abundantly clear that the disciplinary action recently taken by the university against two members of its staff, which is the basis for his outburst, followed due process and it was in line with the laid down rules and regulations as contained in the University’s Conditions of Service.”

“We wonder when an internal affair of the University of Ilorin has now become the business of the University of Ibadan ASUU chairman. We recall that this is the same fellow that recently alleged that the University of Ilorin had increased its tuition fees and shamefacedly took the false news to the media.

“As a supposed senior member of the academia, we expect Dr Omole to be circumspect in his usage of words. How can you describe a university that is the toast of most Nigerian parents and the darling of admission seekers as a terrorist organisation?

“The University of Ilorin is proud of its records of achievement as the most peaceful university in the country with an unbroken record of stable academic calendar and an unmatched expansion of academic programmes. These are attributes that have made the university the most sought after institution of higher learning in the country since 2013.”
