“Why We Expelled Sex Tape Student” — Babcock VC

Published

on

Babcock VC

Vice-Chancellor of Babcock University, Ilishan-Remo, Prof. Ademola Tayo, has said the institution expelled the female student in the sex video that went viral to protect what the institution stands for.

However, he said the institution was still in contact with the girl’s family and may take her back if she was repentant.

Last month a video surfaced of two students making out in what was later said to be a hospital ward. The boy was said to have been expelled before the incident while the girl was expelled as a result of the video.

Speaking during a luncheon with journalists at the Babcock Guest House on Sunday the VC said:

“We had to take that decision in order to protect this institution and to protect its alumni. Because anywhere they go they say the University where they are all prostitutes. They said the girls are always swallowing …and all kinds of ridicule. If we keep mute, in the public opinion they would think that anything goes in the institution. We had to make a statement to show discipline.

“But I need to tell you that I signed it off with tears in my eyes as a responsible father. But we are not leaving this young lady to her doom. The pastor called me last week and I prayed with the family. The father called me and said pray with your daughter. I said she is still my daughter. Sometimes discipline is therapeutic. It is when you go that you realise that this is not right what I have done and then you go back to yourself.

“I look forward to a time when this young girl would graduate and be celebrated. It may not be here; I don’t know where but we are not throwing the baby out with the bath water.”

Tayo described the act by the girl giving the boy a blow job as abnormal.

It is not normal for a young woman to take the manhood of the man and be swallowing. That is a very dirty thing which supposed not to be heard,” he said, adding that the institution had to apply discipline but with love.

The VC however said some stakeholders commended the university’s decision to expel the student, saying that they would have pulled their wards out of the University.

Tayo also described as mischievous a publication by an online publication that listed the institution as the third worst to attend in the country.

“I see that as a sponsored campaign to smear the institution. I know where it is coming from but we will not relent because we will do our best to offer holistic education to the children.

He said Babcock had achieved a lot with 36 fully accredited programmes and alumni who were making waves in various fields of endeavour, including the alumnus, Oladapo Oluwatoyin who made the overall best result in the 2019 bar exams, among others.

Police

A businessman and driver, Mr. Justice Eke, has escaped death by the whiskers when an officer of the Imo State Police Command has allegedly shot him for letting a N50 bribe offered to the officer drop on the floor.

The incident, which happened on Wednesday near Airport Junction along Owerri-Aba Express Road, saw the driver bleeding profusely as he lost control of the vehicle and skidded to a halt into the nearby bush.

While the trigger-happy police officer was escaping, he cocked his gun and threatened to shoot anyone who attempted to attack him.

It was gathered that the incident attracted other drivers, passersby and villagers and halted vehicular movement on the road for several hours before the team leader of the Mopol 88, Inspector Festus Omoruwa, was compelled by the passersby to take the victim to the Federal Medical Centre, Owerri.

When The Nation correspondent visited him at the FMC, the victim, a native of Umuoye Enyiogugu in Aboh Mbaise council area of the state and fish seller, said he was heading to a nearby market when the tragedy struck.

He said the police team mounted checkpoint and usual demanded N50 bribe from him.

“I brought out the N50 and as my car was moving slowly, I handed him the money. Mistakenly, the money did not reach his hand before falling on the ground.

“To my surprise, this infuriated the policeman as he ordered me to come down and pick up the money.

“You know, many vehicles were on line and moving slowly. I expected him to pick up the money. But, instead, he shot me almost from close range at the back of my chest,” Eke said.

He added that what saved his life was his seat, as according to him, the bullet pierced through the seat before hitting him.

“I thank God for everything. Without that, I think I could have been a dead man by now because of my own N50 which I gave out to the policeman”

Speaking with journalists at the state police command headquarters, Commissioner of Police, Bolaji Fafowora, said the command under his supervision would take drastic approach against police extortion and other vices along major roads in the state.

He added that the command under his watch would ensure absolute respect for human right at all times, as his command would not condone any form of incivility to members of the public or other unethical or unprofessional act or misconduct.

A Turkish prosecutor called for a sentence of up to 18 years for a delivery man who spat on a customer’s pizza before handing it over, local media reported Thursday.

The incident — which happened in 2017 in the central city of Eskisehir — was captured by a security camera in the customer’s apartment block, according to news agency DHA.

The footage showed the delivery man, identified as Burak S., spitting on the pizza and recording the moment on his mobile phone. His motive was unknown.

The defendant has already been fined 4,000 lira (600 euros) for endangering a customer’s health, and prosecutors are now seeking a lengthy prison sentence for “poisoning food”, DHA reported.

The owner of the apartment building alerted the customer after watching the security footage, prompting the criminal complaint.

Even by Turkey’s often tough judicial standards, the requested sentence is heavy, given that “membership of an armed terrorist organisation” carries a sentence of up to 15 years.
