A video of the students, including a girl, being viciously flogged before a gathering of fellow students ignited an outrage across Nigeria.

Following the widespread indignation, the state government announced a probe into the incident.
The government also announced the suspension of the school head and ordered the affected students taken to a public hospital.

The commissioner for education and human capital development, Modibbo Kawu, announced the government’s reaction to the incident through a statement.

“The government’s team carefully listened to the authorities of the Arabic school, the father of the sole girl in the video, and four other students involved in the unsavoury development.

“Regardless of the explanations of the authorities on the development, the self-confessed consent of the parents and regret of the affected students, the government seriously frowns at the harsh beating seen in the footage.

“Consequently, the government has directed the setting up of an investigative committee, comprising Muslim scholars, leaders and government officials, to look into the issue while the head of the Arabic school, who admitted to directing the punishment, has been asked to step aside pending the conclusion of the investigation.

“The government has also taken the affected students to a public hospital for proper medical examination and treatment. This is to ensure that none of them suffers any physical or psychological damage.

“The government appeals for calm while the committee does its work and submits a report for further action.

“The government commends the Ganmo Muslim community for the support given to the team.”

Best Graduating Student Civil Engineering

I was still recovering from the loss of my mum when I lost my dad my first semester in CU. It was tough for me because of how close we were. I also didn’t know how my life would be after that. My family members were worried I wouldn’t be able to cope.

Through the family drama, depression and the silent tears at night, God told me specifically in 100 level He would see me through. He said I had a Father in Him and I’d never be alone.

Year after year, God kept making things easy for me and gave me more for all I had lost. In Him I found true joy and peace.

This is more than an achievement for me but a reminder of Gods faithfulness to me and His intentionality towards me. Even before I prayed, God always made provision. God is good to me.

Despite all I went through, God strengthened me and made me mentally stable. I worked really hard and I’m so proud of myself!

This one is for you mummy and daddy �❤️
Your girl did it. God did it for me.
Trust God. Trust the process.

The deployment policies according to him are aimed at broadening the youth’s understanding of the country, thereby standing them in good stead for effective contribution to the promotion of national unity and integration.

“I therefore, encourage you to ensure healthy interactions, exchange ideas and build lasting friendships with a view to advancing the progress of a united Nigeria.

“My dear compatriots, today, you have taken the solemn oath to dedicate yourselves to the service of our fatherland. I enjoin you to always ponder over the significance of the oath and be guided by its spirit and letters. In the same vein, I advise you to familiarize yourselves with the content of both the NYSC Act and the NYSC Bye-Laws”. He charged them.

The NYSC boss however cautioned the youth against indulgence in cultism, drug abuse and other social vices through out their service year urging them to also use the social media only for the promotion of unity and other positive purposes rather than rumour peddling and the promotion of hatred.

Also speaking, the state governor Mai Mala Buni represented by the commissioner of youth and sports Goni Bukar Lawan asserted that the NYSC scheme has over time proven to be a major unifier amongst youths in the country’s quest to break down the walls of ethnicity, religious bigotry, and primordial sentiments.

“This it has continued to be achieved by re-orientating and redirecting their minds towards national goals and aspirations.
