Pastor Tunde Bakare's son & NYSC commandant trade slaps in NYSC Ondo camp

Story written by Stella Dimoko Korkus for Encomium Magazine
It was with tension and on edge that those who witnessed this exchange of slaps whisper this gist. According to them, 'coloured trousers had been banned within the camp and the camp commandant spotted Pastor Tunde Bakare's son, Segun Bakare in black trousers. When apprehended, the lad asked the commandant if he didn't know he was the son of Tunde Bakare, the popular preacher. The commandant immediately delivered a slap on the face of the young man and Segun replied with his own slap.
Continue...



Segun's mum had given the commandant a number to call when she dropped off her son in camp, so immediately this incident occurred, the commandant called Mrs Bakare and after a few words, the phone was handed to Pastor Tunde Bakare himself. After hearing what had happened, Pastor Bakare asked that his son be disciplined for disobeying camp rules. The phone was on speaker and Segun heard his father's instructions and as soon as the phone call ended, he went down on his knees and started begging. The matter has since been resolved.

Wish to commend his dad action and disposition towards the incident. I think dis "U don't know who my father is" is getting out of hand. If men were god.

Clap...clap..clap..good judgement on the father's side.i don't know why the next thing that always comes out a lot of Nigerians after getting into trouble is always 'do u know who I am' even when the person is nobody

The matter was resolved amicably by the great man himself, showing that he did not support his son. So, Linda tell me why are you reporting this? We need some comments from you

I am happy he replied the slap, what nonsense from camp commandant!

TBH
The commandant has no right to slap d young man
If he disobeyed camp rules,he should be investigated and measures taken to discipline him.
Commandant need not slap him as dat constitutes assault.
Meanwhile d stupid boy for slap am twice.

Madness from d boy

Daniel Akobi said...

Truth be told, despite all the bad press and Pastor bashing, will we rather settle for a ' Pastor-less' society?
These people are just human, whom God have decided to single out for the responsibility of Pastoring, like all men, their have their limitations and shortcomings. Sometimes they call the right shots,at other times they get their cards wrong.
But there are lots of people who simply hate anything 'Pastor' that's why lots of people would have commented on this post negatively if Pastor Tunde Bakare called the wrong shot.

Well-done Man(TB).But there shld be other measures to check rude behaviour on camp rather than exchanging slap,slap an adult is disgracing.some are above 30 in that camp but cause of 1 reason or the other had to go thru d process.so army on camp shld be cautioned as well.

Anonymous said...

Why did d commandant slap him in d first place? Don't get me wrong,I totally condemn his 'don't u know my father' attitude,but the commandant has no right to slap a serving corp member

Pastor Bakare has really done well.but commandant shouldnt ve done that.he should ve respected himself.probably he slapped him in front of tinny big breast sexy ladies.

Good call from the popman, but the commandant was not supposed to slap him o, during my nysc camp, one commandant tried slapping a corper see the way we revolted, that we will beat him if he shld try it, the dude just use sense free the issue .... Usually they are not supposed to take actions like that, iam sure the boy must have really vexed the commandant. Anyway let's blame it on +h¬ devil ise esu ni( it is the devils work)

But Tunde Bakara has always bin a disciplinarian o! Non of his kids has individual cars, the Car would drop dem @ der destinations and later return to pick dem up. And those kids are very respectful especially his 1st daughter Bunmi. Let's be realistic I would av retaliated a commandant's slap o. I did to an army officer in maryland 1 time. He slapped me and I did mine back. A hot headed hausa guy like dat. Pple around said he didn't do anything cos am a lady. I said he was shocked I could av done it in d 1st place. I would av retaliated o.

Military na military any time. Besides have you given a thoiught to how old the commandant is and how old our corper is is? We are africans - you do not disrespect your elders. Kudos to you daddy I knew as soon as I started reading you will do right & you did. Not like parents who will go to school & beat up teachers for scolding their kids

Silly people commending the slap of the so called boy. A corp member is a man not a boy. A grown man getting slapped and he should not defend himself????????? BARBARIC PPLE!!!

Hrm paul Ojeih said...

Pastor tunde Bakare did the right thing a son should be disciplined if he errs but still having gone through primary school, secondary fighting to secure admission in our tertiary institution then studying for 4 years,your no longer a boy your a man the camp commandant had no right to raise his hands against the corper.
if this transpired in western world the commandant will face legal actions pure and simple the boy was right to have returned the slap that is exactly what i will do.

victor said...

I believe only my parents have d right to touch me but they will hear it from me if it happens talkless of a bloody civilian. If a man slaps me and expect me not react then he is joking. I just finished my camp and our commandant reprimanded a soldier for hitting a student. The boys action is disgusting but there are ways to discipline stupid boys on camp because I know there are plenty of stupid boys in every camp. Let us stop justifying these assaults.

Anonymous said...

The Pastor's son has succeeded in reducing the rep of the Camp commandant in front of the other soldiers and the babes (female corpers)

The commandant no even help matter by collecting Mum's number in the first place...see wetin over familiarity de cause.

BECAUSE SOMEONE IS OLDER THAN ME THE PERSON CAN DO RUBBISH AND BECAUSE NIGERIANS BELIEVE YOU MUST RESPECT UR ELDERS I SHOULD TAKE THE RUBBISH. B.S. A CORPER IS A MAN AND ANY MAN THAT IS SLAPPED WILL DEFEND HIMSELF, SLAPPING SOMEONE BECAUSE OF A POINTLESS PROGRAM. NYSC UNITING THE COUNTRY INDEED, NONSENSE..

Pastor Bakare is a leader by example, I live in Abuja and in know a lot of kids who attend elite schools, there are countless stories of how kids of the high and mighty flout school rules and insult their teachers, the school dares not even issue the mildest of reprimands to these spoilt brats, so hearing this story and pastor's response for me is very refreshing

Anonymous said...

This story isn't entirely true... I know someone in that camp and NO slaps were exchanged. There was a little misunderstanding between them and the boy was made to write a letter of apology which he read out to the entire camp. From what I hear, he's got a humble personality... I'm inclined to believe that he had a very good upbringing, considering who his father is...

nice one, thot the father was going to support him, what was he feeling like in the first place???

Somtin similar happened wen I was in camp in bayelsa.
The camp commandant said we should all roll on the grass in d open field. including those who were sick in d clinic were all called out to join in d drama. all becos someone did not obey lights out!
While we were rolling,some guys just stood up and started attacking d soldiers,before we knew it,there was serious pandemonium.
No be person tell d soldiers dem make dem run.
Even d commandant himself went hidding. D boys'aim was to beat the living day light out of him.
At d end of d day,d yeye commandant was replaced and he had to apologise to us.

He should ve know better before dropping his father's name am disappointed in the boy himself ,shows that he is vey immatured

Anonymous said...

So people don't see that it's a problem that the commandant slapped the boy in the first place or that he needed the boy's parent's "permission" (yes. That's what he got from the boy's father) before disciplining him.

Anonymous said...

For the guy to return the slap was wrong but the commandant did worse cos he has no right to slap a corper! Wat happened to frog jump and possible detention at the guard room? These soldiers just like to take advantage of ppl. I served in cross river and the worst they cud do was to punish u

I love Pastor Bakare's action. I will do the same thing if I were in his shoes. Spare the rod and spoil the child! Nonsense!

Yes, its cos he is tunde bakare's son dats y he had d privilege 4dem 2call his mum regardless of d fact she dropd d number, if it was an ordinary person d commandant would hav beatin devil out of d person, imagine slapin d commandant back.

wemola said...

the only person that was right here was the pastor,because in the first place,there were'nt to any slaps given in the first,thats the problem with nigerian,we always use aggression and status to have our way,y?,this takes me back to the dear aluu 4,those poor boys shld'nt have been killed by those babaric villagers,if the wealthy or highly placed parents disciplined their kids appropraitely,there have been cases of cult students killing their fellow students and getting away with it with some money slapped unto the palms of the useless lawmakers.We talk about change,but the truth is,that change has to come from you,when others see,they will follow,and this is exactly what this wise has done.

Are u serious? A corps member is a child?

Scarlet Xi said...

I agree with those saying the Commandant should not have slapped the guy. These soldiers have no regards for human dignity and take laws into their hands. I was in that same camp. I know how terribly they treat Corpers. My batch even revolted against the Commandant who had to apologise later. Brutality by security officials should be curbed.

Cus his father is a pastor and a very popular one so he is now above the law ? Let's don't forget that charity begins at home ...that's a sign of a boy without home train and a rude boy. Naija wise up.

Linda oooo .... You've come again ...loool.
Before all else, I think I know Pst Tunde Bakare's 3 boys... They're Segun, Seyi and Rotimi... No Tunde... No Jnr... No Tunde Junior. Lol...

But asides that, seeing this story from a neutral point of view, the soldier was 100% wrong. I just got out of camp myself, Ogun state. It was made very clear that we are not military men, and all went to camp to 'serve' our country. No soldier has the right to lay his hands on you... That's why its camp, not NDA. A soldier can punish you.. Tell you to frog jump or roll on the ground or all that humiliating stuff, but when he lays his hands on you, he's no more in the right. When such a case getz to the commandant, the soldier will always get queried.
So kudos to th young chap for replying the slap... Anybody who knows his rights would have done the same. It happened twice in my camp. On the 2nd occasion, the corper actually overpowered and beat up the soldier... And nothing came of it at the end of the day.

Soldiers are not gods. But nice story all the same Linda... And that's a beautiful fairytale ending toy put in there.

Thanks for the zobo... Lol

So Pastor Tunde has done well

interesting, a grown man would be going for camp and his mother would be giving the "teacher" her number to call her if anything happened.
isnt that what our mothers did when we were going to primary school.
Also interesting that the commandant called the mum to report, just shows the guy really had a point by saying "do u know who I am?"
I ve always said there are no matured people in this country, yes one can say Pastor Bakare handled the situation that was is encouraging, but the fact that he was brought into it at all reeks.

Anonymous said...

as regards this issue of slap or no slap,there was an argument between the platoon soldier and segun ie tunde bakare's son after which the case was reported to the camp commandant who sent for him. on getting there he was asked to say his own side of the story after which the camp commandant told him he was rude and should move backwards and come to attention and salute. he refused and said he rather leaves the camp than serve the punishment. basically that was the story, so slaps were involved.

Anonymous said...

Well, i am not in support of the commandant slapping the boy, neither am i in support of the poor boy slapping the commandant. However, bearing in mind that this boy studied abroad where teacher or lecturer do not have any right to beat or slap student, he must have felt the right thing for him to do was to pay the commandant back with the same kind gesture.

The commandant was wrong for his manner of punishment ! The boy was rude and disobedient and does nt reflect his father s code of conduct ! As for the man Pastor Bakare ! Well ! We can t denie him, meet your Nigerian " Father of the year 2013 " !

But there is a saying " when you are in Rome, do as Romans do " ! He new too well what obtains here before he left for his studies abroad ! As for the commandant , this should make him realise that wrong punishment will always give wrong result ! As in " Two wrong do not make a right "
