unilag students

The students who have been in prison since Saturday were set free this morning.

They had been arrested on campus while protesting the suspension of a visually-impaired student and demanding the reinstatement of all suspended student activists. They were supported by students present at the court vicinity chanting solidarity songs before and after the court session.

Police had claimed the students were arraigned for “riotous invasion” of TVC in Lagos. But TVC management denied the allegations, saying the students were peaceful in their conduct.

The counsel to the students, Inibehe Effiong, said their release was subject to Section 211 of the Nigerian constitution.

‘The trumped up charges have been struck out and we salute the Lagos State Government for this.’

One of the detained students, Aina Tomi, disclosed that the students would institute a legal suit against the Lagos state Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni.

“We will institute legal action against the commissioner in the next couple of days,” he assured.

Female UNILAG student dies after allegedly ‘going out with a man’ 

A 100-level student of Chemistry, Education has died after allegedly going out with an unidentified man last week.


The female student identified as Temitope Omolara was said to have returned to the campus after the outing feeling sick, with her friends reporting that she was seen vomiting on a number of occasions.
Temitope was said to have finally died at an undisclosed hospital outside the campus on Thursday. Her remains were buried on Friday.
Details of the circumstances leading to her death still remain fuzzy. The university authority, Sunday evening, reacted to a tweet, which alleged that the student had died at the university’s medical centre.
A statement signed by the Public Relations Officer of the university, Mr Toyin Adebule, also discredited claims in the tweet that the school had ejected some students from their halls of residence in connection with the incident.
The statement read: “Information available so far indicates that she called someone (some say, relations, others say male) to come and pick her from the hall. Later information filtered into the hall on Friday that she had died.
“I wish to state that the story about the Medical Centre is false. Definitely, the incident did not happen in the medical centre contrary to the claim in the Twitter massage.
“Lastly, there is no formal report from the hall to the DSA on the incident. Therefore, no action could have been taken to eject the bonafide student as claimed.
“Let me state categorically here that no student has been ejected from the hall over this matter. At this moment our thoughts are with the family.”

#LifeInUnilag: True story of a Unilag student who slept with a mammy water

Well, as we all know, not all that glitters is Gold, here is a testimony of a unilag student named David, surname withheld at an MFM church.
David is a 400L student of unilag and has been attending MFM youth church since he gained admission in 2011. He was a very active church member until sometimes in November 2014, it was getting close to the exam period at unilag and David decided to study at his favorite destination in campus which is the Lagoon front.


While reading in front of the peaceful water, he met a very beautiful dark Lady crying, he felt sorry for her and decided to walk up to her. He later asked her why she was crying and she told him all that happened that her boyfriend dumped her. David as a Christian gave her some words of encouragement, preached to her and consoled her. They became friends, more interesting, he has fallen in love for the first time in his life. Unluckily for him a mammy water.
After their exams they became much closer and by february 14 2015. They became lovers. As the relationship grew the young Lady began to demand for se.x but David was reluctant until one day he decided to forgo his church program to go out with the young Lady. He was drunk that night and had s.ex with the lady, you know what it means to sleep with a yemoja, David’s life changed, he started having se.x with her more frequently, he never went to church, he started smoking, his friends started to notice his change and started advising him but he wouldnt listen.
Until July 2015. David fell ill. He went from one Hospital to another but they couldnt diagnose the cause of his illness. Until he started seeing the girl in his dreams he then went to the church for Prayers. The pastor Later told him to confess his deeds which he later did. He later realised she was from the marine world and had ruined his destiny. After seven days of Prayers he finally became delivered. I’m wondering what could have happened to the girl as David shared his Testimony on sunday. This story of David is lesson to us, Pray while choosing your girlfriend before she ruins you.

UNILAG wins GE – IT driven entrepreneurship competition!

The University of Lagos has emerged the winner of this year Information Technology driven entrepreneurship competition organised by Accelerated Learning System Limited in partnership with General Electric (GE) Company at the Lagos Business School, Ajah, Lagos.

Students of the institution defeated 19 other groups from various universities across Nigeria with a perfect business simulation model, applicable to a real life business.




The competition was part of activities marking the International Information Technology Week.

At the several levels of simulating a real business in Nigeria, five groups with the best business models on how to maximise profits and improve staff quality were shortlisted for the final stage. The five groups who made it to the final were University of Lagos (UNILAG), University of Ibadan, University of Ilorin, Babcock University and the American University of Nigeria (AUN) Yola. UNILAG came tops, defeating University of Ibadan and University of Ilorin to second and third position respectively.

Leader of the UNILAG team, Oso Temitope, a final year Chemical Engineering student described the success as what they actually expected, saying the group spent sleepless weeks preparing, rehearsing and tidying its business simulation, which eventually paid off.He explained that the whole exercise of business simulation with the use of Information Technology was very engaging and rewarding as it help sharpened the students’ entrepreneurial skills and knowledge, which can never be taking away from them. “Every one of us was engaged in the success story and it came to us as expected,” he said.

To the Babcock University group leader, Titi Otukoya, the exercise was worthwhile experience because it has further sharpened her business knowledge and skills. “Even if we couldn’t get any meaningful position, the fact that we made it to the final and acquired more skills in running business enterprise driven by technology was fulfilling for me.”

She, however, called on other corporate organisations to emulate the gesture of General Electric (GE) Company and Accelerated Learning with a view to making Nigerian youths more productive.

For the Director of Communication and Public Affairs, Sub-Sahara Africa, of GE, Patricia Obozuwa, the exercise is in partial fulfillment of the firm’s decision to developing entrepreneurial skills in Nigeria and Africa.

Obozuwa described the exercise as a very real way to work with the students and intimate them with what they might meet out there after graduation. She explained that it was part of her company’s corporate social responsibility to invest in Africa by building a sustainable future in Nigeria and across Africa.

Tagged ‘Kujenga’ — a Swahili word for ‘build’ the progamme is aimed at empowering people with new entrepreneur skills with a view to foster development in Nigeria and by extension in Africa.

The Chief Executive Officer Accelerated Learning System Limited, Tope Toogun, explained that the initiative is part of his company’s effort geared towards closing the wide gap between education and skills acquisition in Nigeria, which is the bane of development.

According to him, the nation’s university curriculum does not equip students with entrepreneur skills, adding that his firm is set run learning and development programs with the use of technology innovation to other tertiary institutions in Nigeria.

“Nigeria has a huge unemployment challenge and there won’t be enough jobs to employ the army of graduates being churn out yearly made us focus on how to encourage individual to develop their skills with a view to creating more jobs,” he said.
