A 16-year-old Bayelsa State student, Nengimote Loko, has threatened to sue the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board over the alleged seizure of his May 2017 examinations result conducted by the board.

Loko is a former pupil of Nembe National Grammar School, Bayelsa. The pupil is said to be brilliant and boasts of various awards, including the best student from secondary schools in Nembe area of the state.

He recently won cash prize and a laptop in a competition organised by Bayelsa-based Nengi James Foundation.

Loko, in a petition filed by his counsel, Okorodas and Co., and supported by the Civil Liberties Organisation, Bayelsa State chapter, addressed to the Registrar of JAMB, threatened the board that failure to release his result would force the civil right groups to sue for damages against his fundamental rights.

His lawyer and the CLO claimed that the withholding of Loko’s result had subjected him to psychological trauma.

The petition, which was signed by Keneth Okorodas, stated that Loko was registered for the May 2017 examination with registration number 75188026BD, examination number C10104003 with centre number C10104‎.

The petition stated, “The victim, who is our client, is a brilliant student and a winner of an award with presentation of laptop as best student of Nembe National Grammar School. He was honoured by the Nengi James Foundation.

“Sadly, however, the result of our client for the May 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations was not released and without just cause.

“Our client was not found guilty of examination malpractices, neither was there any issue reported against our client, yet his result was not released, hence this letter.

“We, therefore, humbly demand the release of our client’s result within 21 days upon service of the notice or face stiff legal action.”

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
