A 200- level undergraduate student of Mass Communications at the Cross River State University, Joy Odama,whose mother claimed she was killed by an Alhaji, died after inhaling carbon monoxide. This is according to the police autopsy report revealed on Thursday. .

The Force Spokesman, Jimoh Moshood, told journalists in Abuja that the new report carried out by CP Wilson Akhiwu, Force consultant showed that Joy died after inhaling carbon monoxide fumes ‎and not cocaine as reported by Dr. Jibrin
The FPRO said a suspect, Alhaji Usman Adamu, has been arrested by the police. Moshood, who dismissed reports of police cover up, added that Adamu would be charged to court soon. .

Joy’s mother, Philomena Odama‎, had petitioned the IGP; the Senate President, and the Speaker of House of Assembly, alleging that her daughter was tricked by Alhaji Usman under the pretence of offering her financial help
It seems that justice has finally been served to a lecturer at the Ogun State College of Health Technology who reportedly impregnated a Nursing student as they are involved a heated row over who is responsible for the pregnancy.
We reported earlier in May that a Dental Nursing student identified simply as Mosunmola and Dr Oluseyi Adu, a lecturer at the Ogun State College of Health Technology, Ilese Ijebu, were currently battling over who is responsible for the pregnancy that the lady is carrying.
According to reports, the Nursing student who is 9-months pregnant, alleged that her lecturer is responsible for the child in her womb, adding that they had s*x in a hotel sometime in August, 2016.
Adu, who is married with two children, accused the 28-year-old of seducing him. Mosunmola said the lecturer coerced her into the relationship as a precondition to passing his course which she failed.
According to a new report by Punch Metro, the lecturer, Dr Seyi Adu, has been indefinitely suspended by the college for allegedly having s*x with the nursing student. The suspension was posted on a notice board at the administration block of the college, where the academic community was asked not to have any dealings with him.
It was gathered that a human rights lawyer with the state ministry of justice, was said to have successfully brokered a deal between the duo, wherein Adu agreed to pay Mosunmola a monthly stipend of N5,000 in addition to N7,000 for her ante-natal registration.
Within two months, the agreement broke down after Mosunmola presented a list of items required for her delivery, which she valued at N50,000. Adu was said to have refused the payment, saying she wanted to turn him to a cash-cow.
The 28-year-old lamented that she had been abandoned to her fate, adding that she could not raise money for the baby items. Mosunmola was later delivered of a baby boy at the General Hospital, Epe.
While speaking to a correspondent, a source at the college revealed that a notice was posted at the administrative block of the school, announcing Adu’s suspension.
He said, “The notice stated that he had been suspended and nobody should have any dealings with him. Everybody in the school has been talking about the notice.”
The college spokesperson, Ayodele Alaga, confirmed the development. “It is true. The suspension is indefinite. We have severed relationship with him. He was an adjunct lecturer. We will await the final outcome of the investigation by the ministry of health,” he said.

The police have said they have concluded arrangements to prosecute the suspected killer of Joy Odama, a 200 level student of Cross River State University of Science and Technology.
She was allegedly murdered by one Alhaji Usman Adamu on December 20, 2016 at his guesthouse in Karmo, a community ithe Federal Capital Territory.
Addressing journalists at the Force headquarters on Thursday in Abuja, the police spokesman, Jimoh Moshood, said the force had concluded investigation into the murder, stressing that justice would be done.
He said,
 “I want to assure you that what the police have done is a very thorough job that can stand the test of trial in court against the accused person.
“As I speak, the accused person is still in police custody and that is very important to everyone to ensure that justice is done.”
Moshood however failed to parade the suspect contrary to the usual practice.
A  60-year-old secondary school principal in Ekiti State, is to spend the rest of life in jail for raping a 12-year-old girl, an Ado Ekiti High Court ruled on Thursday.

According to reports, the accused, Taiwo Ajayi, reportedly lured the girl into his office, locked the door and raped her on the table while covering her mouth with cloth.

Justice Oluwatoyin Abodunde, who gave the verdict, said the principal was guilty as charged.

Abodunde rejected the convict’s counsel’s plea for leniency on grounds that he was a first offender, father and breadwinner of an aged mother.
The judge said;

“The prosecution has proved its case beyond every reasonable doubt on the strength of evidence placed before the court. 
“The cases of child defilement has been on the increase lately and to serve as a deterrent to others, my view is that the punishment stipulated by the lawmakers was deliberate to deter the offense and protect the right to dignity of the child.
“The defence counsel is pleading for leniency and praying for fine instead of the due punishment. My question is: “who pays the victim for the life-time scar or the trauma and torture of rape ? 
“`I am unable to deviate from the provisions of the law in this instance; the defendant is found guilty as charged and sentenced to life imprisonment,” 
The News Agency of Nigeria, (NAN) reports that the rapist, who is in his 60s was at the time of committing the crime, the Vice- Principal (Academics) at St. Mary’s Girls Grammar School, Ikole-Ekiti.

Ajayi, who was suspended from the civil service to face the consequences of his action, committed the offence on March 18, 2014.

Two teachers had stormed the vice-principal’s office but could not gain entry until after about 30 minutes and caught him red-handed.

NAN also reports that the prosecution was led by Mr A.E. Arogundade of the Ministry of Justice, while the defence team was led by Mr Sule Longe.

At the arraignment on Oct. 14, 2016, Ajayi had pleaded not guilty.
The offence contravened Section 31 (2) of the Child Rights Law of Ekiti State 2012. (NAN)

The prosecution called eight witnesses including a medical practitioner from the State University Teaching Hospital, police officers who investigated the case, two other pupils and a teacher in the school.

Exhibits tendered include a medical report, statement of the accused, report of the panels set up by the school authorities and Teaching Service Commission, medical report from the police clinic, statement of the victim, among others.

The two panels set up to investigate the case indicted Ajayi which led to his suspension from service after which he was arrested and prosecuted.
Neighbours of Christopher Harrold found him hanging in the corner of his bedroom after being absent for several days in Redland, Bristol, England. The 26-year-old had reportedly pleasured himself and strangled himself as a way of ireasing sexual excitement by restricting oxygen flow to the brain. According to police reports, a laptop and mobile phone was found near his body in his room.
Although no further details about his death were given a coroner believed that the young man didn’t plan to hurt or kill himself. Post mortem examination as well as the circumstances around the death pointed at auto-erotic asphixation as the cause of death. Days before tragedy Mr Harrold moved into his new house which he shared with his three close friends and was in good spirits, according to his family. That’s why his neighbours noticed his absence only two days after his bizarre unintentional suicide.

The University of Lagos (UNILAG) has revealed it has invented a new method of diagnosing malaria, following intensive research by its Department of Medical Microbiology and Parasitology.

Prof. Wellington Oyibo, the Director, Research and Innovation of the institution, who made this known on Thursday in Lagos, said the university’s research on malaria testing without the use of blood was validated in 2016.

He said that by this feat, the institution was fast becoming a clinical trial site for diagnosis in the country.

According to him, the institution has provided a platform and an enabling environment for researchers that have been providing solutions to life’s challenges.

The Professor of Medical Parasitology noted that having worked in the malaria space, he discovered that malaria was a major health challenge in the country.

He added that;
“one of the major challenges in managing the menace has to do with case management, as there are assumptions that all fevers are malaria.
“This leads to excessive diagnosis and overtreatment.”
He recalled that the policy that malaria test should be done before treatment was approved since 2010, noting however, that “in spite of this policy, people are still not doing tests.
“So, one way by which we can encourage diagnosis is by introducing tests that will not require blood from patients. 
“Under the new test formula, medicine retailers will be able to carry out diagnosis before dispensing drugs. 
“If we keep selling drugs for a disease that does not exist, it will amount to waste of resources and patients will be suffering.’’
The lecturer said that the research was conducted in collaboration with a group of researchers in Baltimore, U.S., adding that the outcome was to diagnose malaria using urine.

He explained that “the first urine malaria test’’ has been validated.

According to him, the urine malaria test is the first clinical and global trial to be done in the world.

He said the test had been registered by both the National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration Control (NAFDAC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (USFDA).

He noted that the development was remarkable and groundbreaking, considering the fact that one could carry out malaria test without taking blood.

He appealed to the Federal Government to create easy access for people to test for malaria through the new approach.

This, he said, is possible by establishing testing centres in various parts of the country.
“This achievement shows that UNILAG is becoming a clinical trial site for diagnosis. 
“In the past, trial test are conducted in India and Bangladesh or somewhere in Asia for Nigerians. 
“But now, we are conducting tests for Nigerian patients and we are providing data and that is quite remarkable.’’
Oyibo further said that the new research breakthrough would improve malaria diagnosis and treatment


Know this…It is important for you to get the right orientation before choosing a course if you want to make it big in life. There are some high paying jobs in the society and it would be totally useless for you to waste so much time in the university over a course that is not lucrative. Of what use is it to pay heavily for education if the discipline would not yield high returns in the long run? A high salary does not hurt anyone as most people dream of good jobs that will settle them financially and help them live the lives they have dreamt of living.
It will shock you to know that there are some high paying jobs in the country; these are the kind of jobs that put you above the average salary earners. Here, one can afford to live large and save for the rainy days. People with high paying jobs may not feel the long term impact of recession as they will always have enough to sort themselves and their family members. Although the employment rate is depressing, those who are fortunate enough to get these jobs earn enviable salaries. Not only is the pay encouraging, the respect that comes with jobs like that also spur many people on. The work balance is fair compared to jobs with demanding requirements and lesser pay. Find below the best high-paying jobs in Nigeria, they are not listed in any particular order:
1. Healthcare
In Nigeria, the respect that comes with being a medical doctor can never be underestimated. Irrespective of their area of specialisation, medical doctors will always be considered to be hot cakes as they are well paid and the security that comes with the job is high.
Surgeons receive an attractive sum of money in addition to being highly sought. ..go to all pages below to see all..
2. Law
For so many reasons, Nigerian parents have certain professions they want their wards to focus on. This is because they know the stability that comes with jobs like that. Being a lawyer is one of the jobs any parent would wish his child to have. Studying this course requires serious commitment and dedication.

3. Petroleum engineering
Anyone who works offshore or onshore as an engineer for a petroleum company is sure to earn a huge salary. There are some jobs that people do not bother asking what the minimum salary is because it would surpass their expectations and leave them either depressed or excited. This job is more or less the dream job of many Nigerians as they get to live well compared to the meagre salaries being paid to people in other professions.

4. Airline operation
Black pilot Being a pilot in Nigeria is no joke. The skilled personnel who fly the planes get paid heavily in addition to the boosted self esteem they have every time someone ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’ about their profession. They are treated like expatriates and enjoy some prileges exclusive to that profession alone.

5. Lecturing
File photo of a young man teaching Although many people have different opinions about this job, it is one of the most stable jobs we have here. The pay is handsome and it comes with some benefits that propels self development. Apart from being well paid, lecturers have the time to do other businesses and grow their brands compared to those who work other jobs. Their profession gives them the opportunity to meet people from all walks of life.

6. Politics
In this part of the world, being a politician is a job. While they are serving the nation in the best way possible, they are highly paid individuals who take money in addition to what is given to them officially. This list would be incomplete without them.
7. Engineering
A young engineer at work There is a reason this job is being separated from that of the petrochemical engineers. Although they are in the same field, their job requirements are different. Engineers are highly paid because they have access to the major projects that are being done. They bid for major contracts sponsored by the government and make a fortune from the projects.

8. Pastoring and church business
Pastoring is one hell of a business that brings in a lot of money because Nigerians have problems they want the pastors to solve for them. Nigerians are willing to pay any amount of money to their pastors in as much as they keep praying for them to experience miracles. Some also give out large amounts of money to appreciate their pastors.

9. Consultancy and ICT
Being a consultant for a multinational company is a high paying job any Nigerian would jump at. Companies make use of trained individuals who are skilled in certain areas to help boost the performances of their companies. Consultants are well paid individuals who can afford the luxuries of a good life. They add value to the companies who employ their services by training their staff. With the world going into an era that supports technological advancement, the positions of ICT operatives in the society cannot be overlooked. Major companies need the expertise of these people in order to move their establishments forward. They are highly paid in order to put those companies in global view.

A 26-year old student is reportedly suing UK pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) after claiming she received the wrong dosage of a medication that caused her skin to burn off.

Khaliah Shaw, a graduate student at Georgia College and State University in the US, was prescribed an anti-seizure medication lamotrigine, marketed as Lamictal in the US in 2014, according to a report by 11Alive, an NBC-affiliated TV station in Atlanta.
Within weeks of taking the drug, Ms Shaw claims blisters broke out over her body. She told the news outlet she was “in excruciating pain” and felt like she was “on fire”.

The ordeal led to her diagnosis of Stevens-Johnson syndrome, a rare skin disorder that usually occurs in reaction to a medication or an incorrect dosage.

Ms Shaw spent five weeks in a medically induced coma while her skin slowly peeled off. She told the news outlet that the syndrome left her skin scarred and she is slowly losing her vision, while her finger nails might never grow back.

The syndrome has no cure and doctors told her she might relapse.
“They’re telling me this could happen again, and they’re telling me if it did happen again, that it would be worse,” Ms Shaw told 11Alive.
Ms Shaw is now suing the drug manufacturer GSK for promoting the product without warning of the risks, reportedly demanding more than $3.45m (£2.68m).
Punch reported that Junior Secondary School pupil I of the Lekki British International School, Lekki, Lagos, has been expelled for allegedly putting sulphuric acid and ethanol in the water bottle of his classmate.

It was gathered that the 12-year-old was envious of the 11-year-old female classmate, who had beaten him to the first position in the first and second terms.

The incident happened around 1.30pm on Wednesday, June 14.

The school was planning for the third term exam when the 12-year-old allegedly sneaked into the school’s laboratory and stole the acid and ethanol.
He was said to have mixed the chemicals and poured them into the 11-year-old’s water bottle. Two pupils of the school reportedly caught him in the act and reported to the school management.

The suspect allegedly owned up to the crime, saying he had been planning it for sometime.

A member of the 11-year-old’s family said on Wednesday that despite the culprit’s confession, the school allowed him to sit for the third term examination.

 When our correspondent contacted the school management, an official, who did not identify herself, said the pupil had been expelled.

She said,

“The boy has been expelled with immediate effect. The girl is in school and she is fine. 
We have zero tolerance for such misbehavior.”
The wife of a Lagos State University (LASU) lecturer, Mrs Kafayat Oyekunle, who revealed that she was pregnant for her bricklayer lover, Fatai Alimi has given birth to a baby girl for her lover.

P.M.EXPRESS reports that she was also living with Alimi as his wife in their one room apartment in Igando area of Lagos despite the comfort of the home of her estranged husband.

This was confirmed by Kafayat who said that her husband has left them alone after he discovered that she was pregnant for her lover.

Fatai Alimi was arraigned in court for allegedly snatching her from her husband, Suraju Oyekunle in Lagos, Nigeria.



The 36-year-old woman made the revelation when she went to the court to bail Alimi from custody and met her husband there.
She also said her decision to dump her husband and move into Alimi’s home was due to her inability to bear another child after 13 years she had lived with Oyekunle.

She revealed that after their only son was born 12 years ago, they had tried all they could to bear another child to no avail until a few months ago when she met Alimi and she immediately became pregnant for him.

Kafayat denied she was abducted and said it was a decision she took voluntarily because Oyekunle was not taking care of her.

She said since she met Alimi, things had changed in her life and she now had rest of mind.

She also revealed that her family was aware of the development and in support of her decision.

She said Alimi was better in everything despite his poor status in the society.

The 34-year-old Alimi was arrested and charged before a Lagos court for allegedly snatching Kafayat.

The incident happened in Igando area of Lagos, Nigeria, where Oyekunle resided with Kafayat and their only son.

Kafayat was allegedly so much in love with Alimi that she packed all her property and moved into the bricklayer’s small apartment in an undisclosed place in the same Igando with their only male child.

Kafayat had married Oyegunle for 13 years and the marriage produced their only son before she met Alimi and moved out of her matrimonial home on 15 October, 2016.

P.M. EXPRESS gathered that Kafayat told her neighbours that she decided to consolidate on the new relationship by moving into Alimi’s apartment when her husband travelled.

When her husband returned from his trip and did not find his wife and son, he started making inquiries and neighbours informed him that his wife had moved into Alimi’s house as his new wife.

Oyekunle went straight and reported the matter at Igando police division who trailed Alimi and eventually arrested him at a construction site in Igando where he had gone to work and charged him to court.

P.M. EXPRESS gathered when the embattled lecturer discovered that she was actually pregnant for Alimi, he stopped coming to court and the matter was struck out.

The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has urged GCE candidates to endeavour to collect their certificates within four years of writing the examination as any delay beyond that will attract custody fee.
Mr Demianus Ojijeogu, the Head of Public Affairs Department, WAEC, Nigeria disclosed this in a telephone interview on Thursday in Abuja.
The West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for private candidates, commonly referred to as WAEC GCE, is usually taken in November/December every year.

Ojijeogu said: “ the normal charge for the certificate is N3, 500 and only payable by those whose certificates were issued between zero and four years. 
“But from five to nine years is N8, 500; 10 to 14 years N13, 500; 15 to 19 years N18, 500 while 20 years and above will be charged N23, 500.
“ These charges are for custody fee; for keeping the certificates for so long because it occupies space in our office. It will also serve as a deterrent to others.
“ I don’t know the reason why people will sit for exams and their certificates are ready yet they will not come for collection. What was the essence of the certificate in the first place?’’

He also said that requirements for collection of the GCE certificates within Nigeria were an application letter, sworn affidavit from the High Court, online result print- out, one passport-size photograph, photo card and identity card.
Recently, The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has announced that certificates of the General Certificate Examination (GCE) have been printed and is now available for collection by candidates.

HOW TO COLLECT ORIGINAL WAEC GCE CERTIFICATE


So many candidates has been asking questions on where they can collect their original WAEC GCE certificate, this is one of the main advantages of visiting MyPortalNg.com. Candidates that participated in the examination for private candidates, up till November / December 2015, are advised to visit the WAEC zonal and state offices nationwide to collect their certificates.
The available certificates are the Nov / Dec General Certificate of Education Ordinary / Advance Levels (GCE O/A Levels), Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) (Private) and WASSCE (Private).
A Certain Emeka Anuguo, a cyber cafe operative has been arraigned in court by the Joint Admission Matriculation Board for impersonating a JAMB official and defrauded 70 candidates of N210, 000 in Lagos Nigeria.

Mr. Anuguo is facing a two-count charge of fraud and impersonation at an Igbosere Magistrates’ Court on Lagos Island.

When the case came up for hearing on Thursday, the two JAMB officials who reported the case – Sunday Aladegbaye and Badaru Jubril – were absent in court.

The Magistrate, O. G. Oghre, adjourned the case until July 27 for mention.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the accused first appeared before the magistrate on May 5 and was granted N100,000 bail after he pleaded not guilty.
The prosecutor, Okete Ejime, had earlier told the court that the accused committed the offences between May 1 and 30 at No. 7, Ojora Road, Ikoyi, Lagos.

He said the accused deceived and cheated 70 JAMB candidates by collecting N3,000 each from them to change of their age, courses, institutions and to generate “Remitter Code” for them.

The offences contravened Sections 323 and 376 (2) of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2015.

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has given reasons on its decision to allow over 85,000 candidates, whose 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations, UTME, results were earlier cancelled, to rewrite was because of its new principles of equality and inclusiveness.


But the board said the examination was for only candidates who registered late and those with related issues.

To this end, it warned the candidates with the privileged opportunity to resit the examination slated for Saturday to behave themselves while participating in the examination, warning that like the previous one, it would enhance its monitoring of the examination and not compromise its sanctity.
In a statement to this effect, released to the media by its Head, Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin, JAMB said the examination, which 85,000 candidates would be writing on Saturday, would be spread across some Computer Based Testing, CBT, centres.

The state further explained that the rescheduled examination was a product of an enlarged management meeting of JAMB.


"Many of the candidates rescheduled for this examination enjoy this privilege because of the board's principles of equality and inclusiveness. It is better to let 100 offenders go free than to punish one innocent person," it said. 
The board said the affected candidates have since been informed through text messages to their various contacts.

"By this notice, they are advised to check their e-mail and profile for the schedule of their examination or visit the board's website for their status," the statement added.
It said candidates will soon be requested to print their e-slip for details such as date, venue and time of the examination.


JAMB said candidates not listed for the supplementary, would not be communicated with; while those, whose results are withheld, would reflect in their profiles, which have been updated just as it advised rescheduled candidates to comport themselves and be of good behavior to avoid the circumstance that earlier necessitated the cancellation of their previous examination.
