Assault On Lautech Muslim Lady: MURIC Asks Oyo Govt To Investigate

PRESS RELEASE :

MURIC TO OYO GOVT : INVESTIGATE ASSAULT ON LAUTECH MUSLIM LADY

A female Muslim student of the Online Distance Learning of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomosho, Oyo State, had her niqab (veil) brutally pulled off from behind by an official of the institution on Wednesday, 17th November, 2021. The incident occurred in public during the semester’s face-to-face interaction. Reacting to the incident, an Islamic human rights organization, the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), has called on the Oyo State Government to set up a panel to investigate the matter.

MURIC made the demand in a brief statement issued on Thursday, 18th November, 2021 by the group’s director, Professor Ishaq Akintola.

The statement reads :

“A female Muslim student of the Online Distance Learning (ODL) of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomosho, Oyo State, had her niqab (veil) brutally pulled off from behind by an official of the institution on Wednesday, 17th November, 2021. The incident occurred in public during the semester face-to-face interaction.

“We strongly condemn this act. It is most egregious, reprehensible and despicable. Pulling off a woman’s dress in public is not only bohemian and barbaric, it is also uncultured and preposterous. It is a shameless assault on civilisation, and a disgraceful act of stigmatization. It is equally disturbing that this hate action is coming from a citadel of learning. LAUTECH should know better as an ivory tower. We are disappointed.

“Most disturbing is the fact that the detestable, unsavory and unethical assault on the innocent girl-child was perpetrated in the presence and with the approval of the Dean of the Faculty of Nursing, Professor Ajibade Bayo Lawal who himself is described as a Muslim. But we have long discovered that Muslim haters often use infantile, jejune and half-baked Muslims to do their dirty works for them. Some who have converted to Christianity continue to bear Muslim names in a bid to deceive Muslims and in order to kowtow to the poohpooh of their principals.

“MURIC has long been monitoring the anti-Muslim acts of Professor Ajibade. In May 2021, Ajibade seized the jilbab of another female student by name Misrafat Gbolahan. A female friend who tried to intercede for Misrafat received a dirty slap. Again on 2nd November, 2021, the same Ajibade seized the jilbab of Marufat Basheer. Ajibade has been hounding male Muslim students who wear beards. The public removal of the niqab of another female Muslim student yesterday was the last straw that broke the camel’s back.

“Ajibade’s cup of hate is now filled beyond the brim. He must pay for his anti-Muslim hostilities. LAUTECH is not a primary school, neither is it a glorified secondary school. Why then is this man treating the Muslim students like kids? This is a tertiary institution for crying out loud. Sadists who want to go back to the primary school where they can ferociously wield the ‘teacher’s cane’ while terrified school children tremble and crouch in corners are free to apply for deployment.

“MURIC is nonplussed by the emerging scenario in Oyo State. Muslim students, nay, Muslims in the state, have become endangered species. LAUTECH was encouraged by the lukewarm attitude of the state government to the plight of Muslims in the state. This is a precarious precedent and the impact on Muslims in the state is very simple. They may be militarized. They may be forced to defend themselves.

“Those who make laws impossible to obey make it impossible for people not to disobey. LAUTECH nursing dress code cannot be at cross-purposes with the laws of the nation. Any rule or regulation which fails to take cognizance of the multiculturality of this country is bound to bring conflict.

“MURIC charges the Oyo State Government to institute an investigation into cases of assault, stigmatization, oppression and persecution of LAUTECH Muslim students, particularly the ugly incident of Wednesday, 17th November, 2021.

“The rules of LAUTECH must not be allowed to ostracise Muslim students unless Oyo State Government can convince us that LAUTECH is funded with taxes paid by Christians alone. If we are all tax payers, we must all enjoy the dividends of democracy. Anything to the contrary is an open invitation to chaos. The hostile treatment meted out to Muslim students in LAUTECH is capable of causing a breach of the peace.

“Already, the Muslims Students in the school have issued an ultimatum for the school and Professor Ajibade to apologise or the school’s programmes will be in jeopardy. We implore Oyo State Government to act before things get out of hand. A panel of enquiry is a desideratum. Meanwhile we appeal to the Muslim students of LAUTECH and the Muslims of Oyo State in general to remain calm and law abiding”

JAMB Introduces Two Other Subjects For UTME

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has said it is introducing two new science subjects for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.

The Registrar of JAMB, Prof Ishaq Oloyede, stated this on Saturday in Abuja.

The subjects are Physical Health Education and Computer Science.

“We are asking and sensitising the public, particularly the students, who are to take the exam, that these are two science subjects that will be added to their choice to widen opportunities for candidates to be able to access tertiary education,” Oloyede stated.

The registrar also noted that the board would soon clear the backlog of illegal admissions conducted by tertiary institutions in the country.

He said the move was to ensure that students, who were improperly admitted, but had the minimum qualifications, were rescued.

JAMB had recently uncovered 706,189 illegal admissions by universities, polytechnics, colleges of education and other related institutions.

“We want to continue the campaign to discourage those who are committing such illegal action to stop doing so,” Oloyede said.

While noting that a cashless registration system was adopted for 2022 UTME, Oloyede said JAMB would also prohibit computer-based test centres from selling e-PINs to guard against extortion of candidates.

He stated, “It is known that many CBT centres, despite supervision, still manage to exploit candidates.

“We want to put a stop to that; we have intensified monitoring, but part of what we are doing is to ensure that we protect the students against this extortion.

“We will ensure that anybody who wants to sell ePIN will not be a CBT centre operator. Once you are a CBT centre operator, you have lost the right to sell ePIN, so that we can hold the ePIN sellers responsible for what they do.”

5-Year-Old Hanifa Abubakar Kidnapped On Her Way Home From School In Kano

Suspected kidnappers have abducted a 5-year-old girl identified as Hanifa Abubakar, at Kawaji, in Nasarawa Local Government Area of Kano State.

It was gathered that the pupil was abducted by the kidnappers who came in a commercial tricycle.

According to Daily Nigerian, the incident occurred at 5pm, on Saturday, December 4, when she and other neighbourhood children were returning from an Islamic school.

“The distance from her home to the Islamiyya school is not far. So children normally trek to the school in group on their own,” said her uncle, Suraj Zubair.

According the account of some children who witnessed the incident, the kidnappers offered to hitchhike them to their home.

After dropping them off, they then asked Hanifa to enter again for an extra ride, and then zoomed off with her.

“I want to use this medium to call on those who have any useful information about the whereabouts of Hanifa to contact the nearest police station or call this number: 08032668195.” her uncle appealed.

They beat him up and he fell from his bunk and after they were done they called us back to the room and aslem said the school rules piss him off and if we snitch the way sly did them would do even worse to us. Sly was still on the ground and favor kicked his head again before they left.

In the morning on Sunday sly was on his bed and he complained that he couldn’t walk so the senior called us to their room and said if we snitch they would know and that if they ask us what is wrong we should say he played football.

The dorm master knew there was a beating that occurred so I don’t understand why they are lying on the internet that he wasn’t aware.

Even the following morning sly went to the sick bay and it was obvious he was beaten and because no football can break bones and moreover that week we didn’t have or play football or sport activities.

I tried to explain to the principal what happened but they keep shutting us up and saying he was playing football even before sly uncle came to pick him up me and me and my friend told our dorm master mr amed what really happened but they didn’t want to listen to us
I can’t sleep so I decided to speak the truth everything sly said before he died were the truth.
