Hoodlums allegedly beat up teacher over conversion of school to council secretariat

Suspected hoodlums have beaten up a teacher in the Ilashe area of Ipokia Local Government for allegedly resisting an attempt to convert a public school in the area to the headquarters of one of the newly created local council development area in Ogun State.

The teacher, Kayode Omitogun was allegedly stripped naked by the hoodlums and dragged in a mud water.

The incident according to sources happened last Wednesday at Mayigi Community Comprehensive High School in Ilashe.

It was learnt that Omitogun’s assailants were led to the school by a community leader cum politician in order to take over a block of classrooms for the purpose of converting the building to the council’s secretariat when Omitogun resisted them on the grounds that it was a public educational facility.

A source said: ‘’ Although pupils are currently on holiday but Omitogun went to the school to resist the immoral attempt to convert the school to a council secretariat. In the process, he was stripped naked, beaten in a pool of mud water for about 30 minutes by thugs loyal to some politicians who stormed the school to take over a block of classrooms for the use of a newly established local council development area.

‘’ One of the thugs also smashed a bottle on Omitogun’s head. But for the intervention of passers-by that took him to a nearby hospital, he would have died from the brutality meted to him by thugs loyal to the politicians.’’

An enquiry was forwarded to the Press Officer of Ogun State Ministry of Education, Mr Abiodun Oduyebo, and he promised to revert to our correspondent.

He was however unable to do so as of press time.

The war rages on about the safety of cell phones.  One side argues there’s either nothing to fear, while the other warns that your phone is causes grave harm when it comes into close contact with your body. Citing the views of other experts Dr Joseph Mercola tries to show where the real truth lies.

The year 2014 marked the first time in history that there were officially more mobile devices than people in the world – approximately 7.2 billion.

Although significantly lower, the number of cell phone users is forecast to reach 4.77 billion by the year 2017.

That’s a lot of cell phones and cell phone users. But what’s even more fascinating about all these mobile devices is the behaviour that surrounds them: The average cellphone owner checks their phone 110 times a day, or about nine times each hour; and 46 percent of smartphone owners say “they couldn’t live without” their phones
