Ex-militants invade Igbinedion University this morning

I've been getting quite a number of SOS messages all morning from female students of the Igbinedion University, Okada, Benin City. According to them, ex-militants invaded their school by 5am this morning (they are still there at the time of filing this report). The are destroying cars and macheting people. Several of the male students have been injured. They've also blocked the main gate of the school so no one can come in or go out!

There's a lot of chaos going on in the school right now and the students are scared to the death as the militants have gained access into one of the girls hostel.

Please we are calling on relevant authorities to go to the school right now and help these students. Will tell you all later why the school was invaded. Right now let's try and help these students. Call anyone you know that can be of help...

Update: The school is now calm. No life was lost but several students were injured. New reports suggest it was a clash between students and ex-militants who are also students of the school.

Ok, Linda I wonder who your informant is from this uni. Apparently the fight is between the militants who re students of this school( as scary and appalling as that sounds) and some male students. All we need now is our chancellor igbinedion to come and address this chaos cos cars have been smashed and some random kidnapping as well. And the question he must answer is- Why admit millitants into this uni in the 1st place?

What's happening to IUO of recent? One bad news after the other, week in week out! I seriously fear for those girls, the trauma they've undergone? Thought these militants released all their weapons during the amnesty program?#JustAsking! Chief Igbinedion should start doing more in terms of security cos these stories coming from that school is unbecoming of an institution of such pedigree! God save and protect all of them!

These former militants were also involved in a serious fracas in lead city university ibadan on friday they exposed a serious cult problem in the school.however.the militants in lead city mind their own business but have bEen battling cultists seriously.the authoritied of igbinedion should tread softly because,those pple dnt fear police or even the government.

Yeah, she actually flew in with her family from Connecticut, U.S purposely for her blood brother's wedding in Nigeria. Today Meimuna's brother, Ndako is going ahead with his wedding with heartthrob, Halima at The Incubator, Lagos. The lesson this taught us is that life goes on whatever what happens Oju la lakan fi sori, u can imagine a̶̲̥̅̊ sister with all her L♥√ع ones dying all bcos she wants 2 make her broda's weddin and d wedding still hold afta her death Attimes when u go out of ur way  ur family, its doesn't mean that life won't go  afta ur death, but dos same family make u feel they can live without u.

How is it ever possible that millitants should be present in the premiere private university in Nigeria, I was under the impression that millitancy was a thing of the past, and all such people where been rehabilitated via the amnesty programmes,where ther r been sponsored to higer institutions to help improve their lease of life, its a shame they seek to waste such a wonderful oppurtunity

This is a worry some development which must not be treated lightly, this so called ex -millitants are there due to the magnanimity of the FGN and the propierator of the school, who ccomodated the "millitants " as there is obviously no use for the word or prefix "EX" into this great institution which I was honored to be a part of. This jus goes a long way in supporting the adage that says u can take aman way from the forest but u can't take away the forest from him. The obvious generousity of both parties has been disregarded and this men have shown that they r not willing to give up old ways, I am sure it won't be all of them who r involved in this disturbance , investigations should be carried out and those not willing to study be removed and allow peace to reign

Anonymous said...

The militants are just reacting to the menace some of the cultists as students attacked coordinator of militant students in IUO recently. He was burgled, robbed and his newly acquired honda crosstour destroyed. Now ex-militants are reacting because these students do not want them in okada at all because the seem to compete them.

Student Militants had earlier called for a peaceful resolution to this issue but the students responsible resorted to more abuse and went further to set the destroyed crosstour ablaze. Now tell me how even a sane man won't react.

Its not militancy, its misplaced priority that has caused this nonsense. Please the students know the true situation although their lives are at risk but the story is what so many have confirmed happened and my sister says same.

Before we start pointing fingers and making comments, let's examine the situation and get the facts

Why should amnesty programme put them in a private university situated just @ the edge of the niger-delta,they shd have been taken to convenant university,moshood abiola university or maybe Ekpoma far away from their stronghold,
They are even receiving almost 60 000 naira monthly and some of them are even performing well academically,but its my opinion they be relocated further away from the niger-delta

More information, Information reaching me says militants from Niger delta and bayelsa with more buses are on their way to okada presently in benin-lagos expressway to overpower the military presence in Okada.

The militant coordinator as we know has tried to beg his colleague to retreat but its way beyond his control. Its already a state of emergency in IUO.

They are hell bound, operations started as early as 5am. Fear has engulfed students of Nigeria's premiere university.

The same thing happened in Lead City University on Friday. The ex militants vs Cult boys. It only took the intervention of the owner of the school some police squad and some military men to calm the situation.
The militans guys are peace loving pelople on a normal day but they were provoked by the cult guys over superiority of their teritory.

The same thing happened on friday at Lead City University. There was friction btw the ex militants and a particular cult group over superiority of teritory which resulted to someone shooting a gun. The militants pratically took over the school and locked the school gates. A car was damaged and quite a number of students were injured.
It took the owner of the school, some police squad and some military presence to calm the situation.

It is obvious that the authorities of igbenedion university do not have the welfare of our students in mind... This is a school were we pay over 600,000 thousand naira and yet we ain't getting those moneys worth. No light, inadequate water, low infrastructure. Go to our teaching hospital and see the amount of casualties,both innocent and cultist that were injured by the militants (amnesty students) and yet nothing adequate has been done to address the issue instead our VC who has been on the run since the sad incident started,comes out and says that the on going exams will continue not considering the amount of properties that has been destroyed, talk more of the amount of innocents students that have been injured, students that their parents sent to gain knowledge. Enough is enough!!! This is a time we students have to come together and stop this rubbish. The school authority has to address this issue properly and assure both parents and students that adequate measures will be taken, they must hold a press conference and apologize to both students and parents assuring them that proper measures will be taken to avoid a repetition of what happened yesterday. I'm sending this broadcast to both students and members of the public so that it will get to the relevant authorities.
