GOOD NEWS: NYSC Ready To Allow Corps Members To Seek Re-deployment From North-East, SEE Conditions Attached



The National Youths Service Corps, NYSC, seems to have yielded to public pressure calling for the re-deployment of corps members posted to crisis zones in the northern part of Nigeria.

According to THISDAY, the Director General of NYSC, Brig. Gen. Jonson Bamidele Olawumi, on Wednesday said plans were under-way to initiate new laws that would empower corps members posted to crisis zones to seek immediate re-deployment.

It was further gathered that Gen. Olawumi disclosed this while commencing NYSC’s two-day pre-mobilisation workshop for Batch B corps in Enugu, saying that existing policies were being reviewed in order to expand the scope of areas of primary assignment for corps members.

The DG reportedly stated that the new policy would help to tackle the challenge of rejection of corps members by employers.

He noted that as a result of the security challenges in the country, corps members are now at liberty to seek re-deployment when posted to states under emergency rule in the northern part of the country.

“The policy we are talking about in terms of review has to do with widening the scope. As you are aware, for now we are bound by the fact that we deploy corps members to only four key areas; talking about agriculture, education health and rural infrastructure development.

“But we are making a case to see if we can expand beyond these four key areas so that the problem we are having with what we are doing right now especially in terms of rejection of corps members we’ll be able to mitigate that. That is the key policy that we are trying to look into for a review. We are looking at areas like banking sector, the oil and gas industry, telecommunications and other sectors,” he added.

It could be recalled that a lot of Nigerian graduates have recently been calling for a halt in their posting to some states in the north-east synonymous to Boko Haram terror attack.

School teacher reportedly flees after allegedly flogging his student to death in Lagos



In what will come across as a really shocking development, a Twitter user has accused a Lagos teacher of killing his brother.

The man alleged that a Lagos teacher beat his junior brother to death over the boy’s failure to correctly answer a question asked of him during their mathematics session.

The man, whose Twitter handle identified him as Ridwan Oyewunmi, on Friday narrated the incident, which he claimed involved one Elihans College in the Ikorodu area of Lagos.

He said the school authorities had made them believe the young boy, whom he identified as Boluwatife Omelaja, had slumped and died while attempting to answer a question in the front of the classroom.

“I just lost my brother to School Teacher Brutality. Mr. Emmanuel is a sec school teacher at Elihans college, Ikorodu in Lagos,” Oyewunmi wrote in a Twitter thread.

“He beat up my brother Boluwatife Omelaja (frame 2) to death on the 26th of November on the school premises because he couldn’t answer a math question he was asked correctly.

“The school initially made us believe he slumped and died while he was trying to answer the question on the board, a boy who wasn’t ill or showed any sign of sickness before.

“He was brought home in the school’s bus by the school proprietress and principal, along with Mr. Emma-whom we didn’t know was the killer at that time, and he was buried a few hours later according to the Muslims doctrine.”

Oyewunmi also said the principal conveyed the boy’s corpse with the school bus to his parents’ home.

He, however, added that one Lateef Omelaja, the deceased’s sibling, “who was prevented from leaving the school,” later returned and narrated what he claimed transpired.

“Meanwhile Bolu’s other brother, Lateef Omelaja was prevented from leaving the school premises, in order to prevent him from spreading the true news to us at home and to buy Mr. Emma more time to run away,” he added.

“We believed the cock and bull story the school fed us not until Lafeef got home at around 5 pm and narrated what really happened at the school to us.

“We also confirmed this from other students of the school including classmates of Boluwatife.

“The painful part is, the school keeps trying to cover up for Mr. Emma claiming he didn’t beat Bolu. Mr. Emma is on the run, nowhere to be found.

“I know no amount of punishment for him will bring back my brother but I just want Mr. Emma located and justice served.”

As of when this report was filed, TheCable Lifestyle has reached out to the school involved to hear its side of the story.
