Family of Madonna Univeristy fire victim speak out

On Saturday June 8th, a room at Saint Peters boys hostel in the Okija campus of Madonna University, Anambra State, was gutted by fire, killing one student. (Read the story HERE).

The family of the dead student, Chigozie Orluwehuje, (pictured above) just sent me something to publish so people can know what's happening with the case. See it below...
On the 8th of June 2013 at about 4pm the news of the fire incident got to the hearing of the mother Mrs Norra Orluwehuje and other family members by a student who happened to be a friend of  Chigozie Orluwehuje, crying that the boy was one of the four that were engulfed in fire outbreak in the school hostel. The mother plus few of his relatives while on their way to school enquired of the news in the Elele campus and were directed to see one Father Francis who gave no listening ear to them according to a Rev. sister but asked us to enquire about anything in the information Centre in the school. The information center of the school openly told us that they knew nothing as at the time of the enquiry. They also refused to contact the Okija campus as to know the situation before embarking on the journey to Anambra state where the school is located.


On Sunday the 9th of June 2013 we went down to the school Madonna University Okija to ascertain what really happened.  The CSO who took us to the Hostel and the boy’s room told them that the victims worked out from the hostel themselves mean while they got to the hospital and saw that they were all in coma. The CSO also confessed to us that the victims including Chigozie Orluwehuje who happened to be the hostel Rep. padlocked themselves from outside their room which was not possible because their room is in the third floor of the hostel. We interviewed some of the students who said they never would like names mentioned testified that the school authorities didn’t care about the victims and there was no first aid and to make it worst when some of the students who tried after rescue to rush them to nearby clinic was told there was no keys to open up the gate as at the point of rescue.
Up till this moment the school authority have not formally or officially informed the family of CHIGOZIE ORLUWEHUJE the death student in the fire incident, what actually happened. No remorse at all.

Terrible,there is something mischievious about this school..why do people send their children here. If u have the money to pay such huge school fees, isn't it better at Ghana or simply going overseas. If not stick with a competitive Federal University here.

They padlocked the door from outside? WHY?! That is a security hazard on it's own.

I have a sister in this so called school and the stories she tells me makes me cry. My brother was there also at Elele campus but I fought hard with my parents to bring him out, they refused. Instead, they were praising the school. I had to conspire with my brother and arranged for him to come abroad to school since he was still fresh in the school while my sister was already deep in the system... The rev. Father of that school is a total fraud. I heard he listens to students who have big boobs only. He doesn't give a damn to others. Parents don't know what is going on in the school because the picture the school''s officials are painting outside isn't the same inside. That was why my parents didn't listen to me. I can't wait for my sister to graduate from that school of hell and when she does, am gonna personally celebrate for her. Take her to church for a testimony if possible.... If you have a relative in Madonna university, always put them in ur daily prayers because that school is hell on earth. Worse than the worst boarding secondary school you can imagine in nigeria

Anonymous said...

Parents pls do not enroll ur child in any boarding school in Nigeria. Even in the university, pls try to avoid the hostels. Imagine students locked in and wen there I a problem, no one comes to their aid. Its sad, but u can't entrust the lives of ur kids to any institution in naija

Shocked i am just getting to know about this incident. Was a student of the school and was also an occupant on the said floor, the CSO is not to be relied on as he is lying to save the image of the school based on my experience there and the emergency techniques as well as facilites are non existent in the school, i also blame NUC who are bribed on inspection visitations to the school to close their eyes to the obvious dilapitated state of the school buildings from hostel to bathrooms outside the hostels etc. Sorry for the family loss

This is one of d yearly season of death that happens in dat school.....
Come to think of it,,,what school would have 2prisons(one for the boys&one for the girls)???
Which school would make joggin compulsory for the students(&if u don't come out u are expelled&CULTISM is typed as the reason 4expulsion OR if lucky, you would pay a huge sum of amount to redeem yourself)????
Which school has VAMPS(spys) dat are being paid by d school 2fish out students 4expulsion &students dat talk about d school (Note: Freedom of speech is not 100% in dat school)
Which school or rather which catholic school brings in punishment to students dat are not catholics??? What Boko Haram is doing(persecutionsssssssss) to christians is wot they do to pentecostals in that school!!!!.......
ONLY MADONNA UNIVERSITY does all of these &lots more..
That's the reason why they wouldn't allow camera phones in dat school-,,,,&only JUST ONE photographer operates there-,,,,,,so dat quality evidence by d students is not released to the public.
The Government should thoroughly look into that school &NUC should stop takin little peanuts from the management of that school in order to conceal their evil deeds!!!!.......
May God help us,,,,AMEN!!!

According τ̅☺ d story i heard from my lil yiy who schools there. She said d guy was a control freak cuz he was a hall rep, and d students hated him as in no one has anytin good τ̅☺ say about him. So a student or some students who r yet τ̅☺ be identified locked d room from outside, and used petrol τ̅☺ set d door on fire. Well, i schooled there myself and i know d building pattern of d hostel, and i say its very easy τ̅☺ burn a room through d door cuz of d inferior materials used τ̅☺ build d hostels and secondly, if d guy was wicked like she said then i feel whoever did this went too far. Some of this hallreps r actually responsible for most of this students been expelled from school. Some even seize υ̲̣̥r̲̅ clearance cards and make u miss an exam and once u miss an exam in madonna, it can give u a heart attack. Some of them punish their fellow students by telling them τ̅☺ scrub d toilet...inshort, linda d story is too long. I've been a victim of such a hallrep stupid display of power and i swear if i had a gun i could have shot her and damned d cosequence. My blame goes τ̅☺ d school for giving a student that much power. Its just like a second sch scenerio where d headgirl is punishing a jss1 girl but in ds case d person might actually be younger than u or u even pay more sch fees than d person. Whoeva did ds was pushed τ̅☺ his breaking point and he sought revenge. Some students even commit suicide there. Its that bad. Lookin back now i just thank God i didn't loose my sanity in dt prison. They could care less about u. All they r after is υ̲̣̥r̲̅ schoolfees.

I am a graduate of the said Madonna university and I can categorically tell you that every single thing this boy's parents said is the truth. This people have no regard whatsover for their students, they even treat the cleaners better than they treat the students. The five years I spent in that dungeon was hell, I can't thank God enough for seeing I and my friend's through. The hostel catching fire is not a new thing in madonna, the worst part is that each time there's a fire outbreak the members of the room where the fire started are made to pay fines as huge as N500,000 each and the authority will claim that the monies realised will be used to compensate the other students that lost their properties. At the end of the day nobody knows what will become of the money. It's indeed a very sad situation there. If u can survive in that school you can survive anywhere and anything! RIP young boy.

I remember the day we came out for our weekly jogging and Orientation. The then Deputy Vice Chancellor(DVC) who is a priest was praying for us and all of a sudden he stopped and said we weren't responding the way we should. He then asked everyone to kneel down we stayed in one position for about 3 hours. That faithful thursday remains very remarkable to me because it was exam period and I had a paper that day(family law). I was sooooo sad and I told my self that if I was in 100 or 200 level I would have left the school. But where will I start from if I leave in 400level. I thought of all the money my family had put in to get me this far ( the school fees isn't cheap at all) and I decided to stay and finish and today by His grace am doing well.

Linda I was once a student of this school and men, the system there is crazy. Firstly, the hostels are not conducive at all. And the school authorities don't give a fuck about what u say or do. Students who attend this university are tied up and held hostage. I ran for my life way back in 2006 cos I couldn't take it anymore. Madonna university should be shut down forever. The school authorities should be taken to court and the school licence siezed. The family of the dead student shouldn't just let this matter die down. Students are suffering in madonna. I can stand and say it anywhere that madonna is fake, the system is fake, father Edeh is fake.

Linda hear is the full gist...

The above mentioned boy was a hall representative of or St. Peters hostel and being a hall rep usually comes with its own prices including being power intoxicated to bully, punish and maltreat fellow student regardless of their ages and levels. they are seen as demi gods.

on this faithful day the above mentioned hall rep seized the camera phones of many students in the hostel and in order to avoid disturbance and begging he asked a friend of his to lock the door from outside so it will be assumed he was absent from the hostel.

Now some of the grieving students in order to punish the deceased hall rep set fire to his locked room to destroy his properties unknown to them that the hall rep was inside the room along with three other of his room mates.

This is a sorry situation but Linda i beg you don't drop this case until that school gets what they deserve.

The people in authority in that school are soooooo bizzare. I don't know y ppl still send their kids there. My younger sis will hopefully be the last in our family blood line to school dere. From course accreditation wahala to gadget problems to security issues,they don't care about any student there..The school is full of shit.

Jesus, i am a graduate of the school and i must confess, it was a mistake to be a student of that school, a school where we cover up with philanthropic words but the deeds are that of the devil, a school where nobody is relevant and oi=pinions never count, a school where all the set of unqualified individuals are the ones in charge of affairs and instead of being sober and ready to learn more they are filled with arrogance and lack of moral and respect.
It is a school where even-though you go to the university, you have no experience of what it is to be in the university, a school where there is no room for self development. i am embittered with all that happens in the school.
All the way from the chancellor of the school Fr. Emmanuel Matthew Paul Edeh, to the other governing council of the school. Talk of Philomena a OND holder who has been the dean of student affairs since around 2005 till late last year to the head of Exams and Records Fr. Francis who has a certificate in Theology and Philosophy, not to mention other people that govern the school.
It is a pity i came out of a university that has no senate council. No one to run to when cheated.
It is the only institution that i have seen that forces his students and their parents to sign an agreement that they will for no reason sue the school and whatever decision the school takes is the final... what a place that cajoles people in the name of religion into getting them to enter into the demons den

As a runaway student of the school.... Madonna can be so so reluctant to a point am nt surprised at the universities reaction to this situation... Am sure they prob have even done worst dah ppl outside have heard.. We r hearing dis 1 now cos som1nz life was involved... which is a big big pity... Trust even mai worst enemy i wont advise to go to Madonna...

The reputation of the university...abi secondary school is poor. Some of the lecturers demand money before assignments are submitted, else consider it that you've failed that assignment. I thought this is a kind of a missionary school where discipline, values and respect for mankind, are instilled on students, rather they (students) are treated like animals, and the socalled Revd Fathers n sister running both campuses (Elele and Okija) care less. The environment is stinking and no potable water for students to use, some hostels are without doors and windows. In fact the school is a dungeon. What does Fr. Edeh do with the exorbitant school fees he charges students. NUC you are a failure! All you are interest in, is collecting egunje from the school without properly performing your oversight functions. Shame to Madonna University! Shame to NUC.

All these other issues like being locked in and all, are a distraction from the big picture. Incidents like this are bound; what measures are in place to combat them? Everyone should be held accountable; NUC and the School authority. And to those commenting, "if you have nothing useful or meaningful to the subject to say, don't comment".. Being 1st and giving unreasonable remarks don't make any sense..thank you.

I remember vividly. A boy was delivered from demonic forces on EMMANUEL TV. He was a student of this Madonna school he testified publicly denouncing the occult ills of this school and how he was initiated. So when people talk about charms being planted and occult dealings, better believe it.
Another girl too, from Madonna after deliverance on Emmanuel TV denounced lesbianism in Madonna. She even went as far as sying even the Mother Prioress (something like that )and Catholic sisters have sex with the female students. Some Catholic sisters in their burning lust even force themselves on female students. Sometimes there are cases of sexual harassment from CATHOLIC SISTERS.Mother Prioress is at the top...

Lets be objective sometimes in out comments. I graduated from there with some issues but I'm grateful to God I came out in one piece but I am amazed at the stuff people make up. Freedom of speech is very costly.

DEAR ALL, MAYBE THE RIGHT TIME HAS COME WHEN I SHOULD VOICE OUT MY ORDEAL IN MADONNA UNI, AND HOW WICKED THE SCHOOL AUTHORITY CAN BE. LET ME STATE CLEARLY HEAR THAT I WILL REPEAT THIS STATEMENT EXACTLY THE SAME IN ANY MEDIA HOUSE IF INVITED AND IF THERE'S ANY GOOD CITIZEN OF NIGERIA ESPECIALLY THE HUMAN RIGHT ACTIVISTS, I'M READY TO WORK WITH YOU SIRS. I HAVE BEEN ON INDEFINITE SUSPENSION IN MADONNA UNIVERSITY SINCE 2009 - HERE IS MY STORY - ON THE 6TH OF JUNE 2009 JUST A WEEK TO MY DEGREE EXAM AND FINAL YEAR 2ND SEMESTER EXAMS,AROUND 7AM JST A FEW MINUTES AFTER I CAME BACK FROM THE MORNING MASS, A HALL REP WALKED INTO MY ROOM AND ASKD FOR ME, WELL I WAS THERE SO I PRESENTED MYSELF. HE TOOK ME TO THE SCHOOL SECURITY OFFICE. ON GETTING THERE I NOTICED THERE WERE ABOUT FIVE(5) OTHER STUDENTS - BOYS(ALL FINAL YEAR STUDENTS) ALREADY DETAINED AS WELL. WHEN I INQUIRED WHAT WAS ACTUALLY GOING ON I WAS TOLD THAT WE HAVE BEEN ACCUSED TO BE CULSTISTS,,, HOW? WHEN? WHERE? WITH WHICH EVIDENCE? I COULDN'T EVEN BITE A FLY. IMMEDIATELY IT OCCURRED TO ME THAT THERE'S A HUGE PROBLEM AHEAD OF ME, KNOWING HOW THE SCHOOL RUNS. I JUST STARTED PRAYING. I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW THE OTHER GUYS IN ANY WAY OR HAD ANYTHING IN COMMON WITH THEM, IN FACT THAT VERY DAY WAS MY FIRST TIME TO NOTICE SOME OF THEM. TO MY GREATEST SURPRISE, WE WERE NO LONGER ALLOWED BACK TO THE HOSTEL, WE PASSED THE NIGHT OUTSIDE AND IN FRONT OF THE SECURITY HOUSE. THE NEXT MORNING, WE WERE TOLD THAT WE WERE GOING TO FACE THE SCHOOL PANEL WHERE WE ARE TO BE JUDGED. THIS WHOLE THING WAS LIKE A FERRY TALE TO ME BECAUSE MY FINAL DEGREE EXAM WAS JUST IN-FRONT OF ME AND THIS DISTRACTION ? AFTER SO MUCH BEATING WE WERE FINALLY DRAGGED LIKE CRIMINALS TO THE OFFICE OF THE VC WHOM I CALL - A BEAST . IN HIS OFFICE , TO MY GREATEST SURPRISE THE SCHOOL VC JUST TOLD US THAT THEY ALREADY KNOW WHO WE ARE AND THAT THE SCHOOL PREMISES WAS NOT A PLACE FOR US. JUST LIKE THAT,BEFORE WE COULD SAY JACK... THE POLICE WAS INVITED AND THEY TOOK US TO AWKA POLICE STATE CID WHERE WE WERE DETAINED FOR 3DAYS IN CELL. EVEN IN THE CELL, I WAS JUST CRYING BECAUSE I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW MY CRIME, AND MY DEGREE EXAM WAS JUST AHEAD. IN THE PANEL, THERE WAS NO EVIDENCE AGAINST US OR EVEN ANY TESTIFIER TO SAY SOMETHING AGAINST US AND IT WILL INTEREST YOU READER TO KNOW THAT ALL SIX(6) OF US WHERE FINAL YEAR STUDENTS WHOSE FINAL YEAR DEGREE EXAMS WAS JUST A WEEK AHEAD OF US. THAT DAY OF PANEL THE WHOLE STUDENTS CAME OUT IN ANGER AND WERE SHOUTING - THEY HAVE DONE NOTHING !!! FREE THEM !! THERE IS NO EVIDENCE!!! BUT THEY COULDN'T SAY MUCH BECAUSE IF ANYONE IS CAUGHT, ITS BYE BYE FOR HIM OR HER. WELL, NEWS GOT TO MY PARENTS AND THEY CAME AND BAILED ME OUT OF THE POLICE STATION LIKEWISE THE OTHER STUDENTS, WHEN WE RETURNED BACK TO SCHOOL, WE WERE SERVED INDEFINITE SUSPENSION LETTER AND WAS ASKD TO LEAVE THE SCHOOL COMPOUND. AND UP-TILL TODAY I HAVE NOT BEEN INVITED BACK TO SCHOOL. THE FATHER OF ONE GUY AMONG US WAS A NAVY MAN AND A BIG OGA IN THE NAVY, ONLY HIS SON WAS CALLED BACK TO SCHOOL IMMEDIATELY. EVEN IN MY CRY, WHAT BAFFLES ME THE MOST WAS THE FACT THAT THE MAN AT THE HELM OF AFFAIRS WAS AN ORDAINED MAN OF GOD WHO EVEN AFTER SEEING THE TRUTH THAT THESE BOYS HAVE DONE NOTHING WRONG, HE STILL INSISTED THAT WE BE SHOWN THE WAY OUT AND TREATED US LIKE CRIMINALS, SIX(6) FINAL YEAR STUDENTS FOR THAT MATTER. WE LATER GOT TO FIND OUT THAT ALL THIS HAPPENED BECAUSE THERE WAS A PARTICULAR STUDENT HALL REP WHO WANTED TO BE CONGRATULATED BY THE SCHOOL AUTHORITY FOR TAKING HIS JOB SERIOUS SO THAT HE WILL MAINTAIN HIS POSITION AS THE GENERAL HALL REP - HIS NMAE WAS 'MAX'. BECAUSE OF THIS, I LOST MY CAREER PART, ALL THE MONEY I PAID FROM MY FIRST SEMESTER YEAR1 TO MY FINAL SEMESTER FINAL YEAR - WHICH AMOUNTED TO ABOUT 6MILLION NAIRA. TODAY, I'M HAPPY FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY. 08034368151, 08185582123.

May his soul find peace in d lords bossom. The school is useless,needless me saying, I am one of d lucky ppl to survive a close shave wit death in dat useless school, that was how sm ppl died in 2010 during dere stupid 25th anniversary,d useless church was collapsing on a cold dark nyt wit pilgrims n students inside, due to confussion n lack of light to c were to run to,a stampede ensued n resulted to loads of injury n death of 2students n pilgrims, who jumped off thinking d entire building was collapsing, dat boy is dead today,is all dere fault, and so is d death of many students dat have gone unnoticed, eida due to lack of permit to leave school n get proper treatment wen ill n dey die in hospital bed n d school give a stupid autopsy, or sm very unneccessary stupid function dey pack all students in a vehicle n force dem to attend.exposing dem to dangers on d road,witout parents consent. Mehn,if I go on,d list is cray, I am so angry at dat school cos of d evil dey commit dere,I wonder wen d authorities in dis country will take sm serious action concerning dis school? Wen half d students are dead? Madonna is nt fit n does not have d capacity to kip students on campus.

Its not up to a yr nw dt i left madonna...the school is what everyone has said and even more,cant even imagine dat i stayed thr for two yrs after which i ran for my dear life and am happy i did.I rili suffered, no freedom of speech cos u dont know if the person next to u is a VAMP, even ur friend cud be vamping u.Fr Edeh on his own is a devil.Sometin must rili be wrong with the skul cos arnd ds same time last yr a similar fire occured in the girls hostel and after all the property lost,dey were still made to pay fine.When the NUC came,students were happy thinking they would finally answer our prayers but they just took bribes and left.The skul should be closed down...feel so sorry for all my friends there though.

@God will show mercy one day, ur story I can remember, but the Amount u said u paid is to the best of my knowledge a big fat lie. You have a good case till you added the 6million. Evn law students don't pay up to 3million Naira for there five years stay. And I knw there was no law student involved. Also as at that time the school fees was not that much.

It is sad, really sad and my sympathy goes to the family of the deceased. As a graduate of this institute. I will say with all due respect to the authorities that govern the affairs, SOMETHING MUST BE DONE. Though it was an accident however unfortunate it was, it is right time that the authorities step up and begin to respect the fundamental rights of students and give respect to there parents. It is a Christian university and so I should presume that the teachings and doctrines of Christ should be made manifest by the authorities in its administration of the school. To my dear students I will advice. Try stay away from trouble, I know in Madonna must students do not search for trouble, but trouble keeps knocking on there doors (hall reps & vamps)- avoid them and do the right thing
I believe our good Lord will surely see u through

Linda as I told you yesterday when i was at Nnamdi Azikiwe teaching hospital Nnewi to see the other victims, the mother of one the boys: Mr Alex Aguda was in tears that her son just passed on. the mother said the boy had started talking and eating and that the boy told her that they were four playing computer games with the lab top, the laptop was fully charged and was not plugged into any electrical source not even a foam was plugged. After sometime Chigozie fell asleep, and the others followed one after the other. She was the last to sleep. He shutdown the laptop and slept, they forgot to lock the door, only to be waken up br fire which had engulfed the room, they reahed out to the door and found it locked from outside, and they started shouting for help before other students broke the padlock outside and brought them out
