Touching: 3 of The Colorado Shooting Victims Died Taking Bullets for their Girlfriends



The Colorado Shooting story made news about two weeks ago when James Holmes, a postgraduate student in the united states visited a cinema in Colorado and opened fire on the people randomly. The attack killed 12 people and left nearly 60 others injured.

However, fresh information from about the killings revealed that three men jumped on top of their girlfriends as the bullets flew through Theater Nine at Century Cinemas in Aurora, Colorado during the shooting. Amidst the chaos, amidst the gunfire and amidst tear gas, these three men thought of the women they loved and used their bodies to protect them. They threw them to the floor, under the seats; they held them tight. They held onto their beautiful women as tight as they possibly could. Lying on top of their bodies in case a bullet came their way.

All three girlfriends survived the killings. They are Jansen Young, Samantha Yowler and Amanda. And one of them, Jansen, had the courage to recall those last moments, “There was kind of a break in between each gunshot. Every gunshot, I was like, ‘This is it . . . I’m done for.’ Jon gave me one good push against that concrete again and then . . . I didn’t really feel his arms against my back anymore but I knew he was still there.” When the gunshots went quiet, Jansen realized her boyfriend was shot. “I started shaking him and saying, ‘Jon, Jon, we have to go . . . it’s time for us to get out of here.” But he didn’t move. His breath was gone.

One wonders if a typical Nigerian would do that for their women.

    What those guys did was brave enough and not common.
    It is in one word ‘selfless love’. However, the incident is rather
    unfortunate. My condolences to the families of the victims.

Why We Haven’t Called Off Strike –ASUU



Why We Haven’t Called Off Strike –ASUU

ASUU Chairman, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), says the ongoing ASUU strike will only be called off when the government is ready to conduct an integrity test on the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS).

In an interview with The PUNCH, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, ASUU President, said the federal government needed to give the clearance to National Information Technology Development Agency to conduct an integrity test on UTAS.

Speaking with PUNCH, the ASUU President said: “The integrity test will be handled by NITDA, it is government that will facilitate it because NITDA is a government, agency and unless you get clearance from the government that test cannot be conducted.”

Professor Ogunyemi while speaking on whether the government had accepted UTAS, said, “We are still talking, we have given them the position of our members, we are thinking we should be able to hold a meeting this week if they have not changed plans. The meeting for Monday was postponed. In principle, they have accepted UTAS and told us to go for the test, and on our part, we have started the process.

Speaking further, the ASUU President also explained that ASUU was ready to resume academic activities if the government was ready to play its part.

“Our members are ready to resume work as early as government is ready to play its part. I’m sure you are not suggesting that our members should resume on empty stomach or the strike should be suspended without any concrete action on the side of the government. We don’t like to stay away from our work because we like our students, they are also our children.

“As far as we are concerned, we don’t have issue with going back to work, but we want more sincerity on the side of government. We have not seen enough reasons to believe that they don’t mean what they are telling us but as soon as we see any sign to that effect. we will tell Nigerians,” Ogunyemi opined.
