A former Chief Security Officer and member of The Students Forum, an anti-cultism group
of the Polytechnic, Ibadan has been killed by suspected cultists

Ahmed Olalekan, a graduate of the institution was shot dead on Monday night, by members of the dreaded Aiye Confraternity of Nigeria, who traced him to his apartment in Apete area of Ibadan.

According to an eyewitness, the assailants shot the deceased at close range. They were said to have also cut him several times in the neck with an axe to ensure he was truly dead before leaving the scene.

The Students Forum is an anti-cultism group comprising of students and former students of the school.

Maku was involved in the fight against cultism through his activities as a member of the forum. He was said to have been killed on Monday night by cultists who stormed his apartment in Apete area of Ibadan and shot him at a close range.

The killing of Olalekan enraged his colleagues and members of the forum, who blocked the Sango-Eleyele road in protest.

Public Relations Officer of the forum, Adeyemi Ridwan, who was one of the last persons that saw the victim before his death, said the cultists had been threatening to strike for more than two weeks, blaming the school authority for not acting on the information.

"The school is aware of this. I left the school with Maku on Monday and when we got to Apete, I told him that we should go to a place but he said he wanted to go and rest at home so he alighted from the commercial motorcycle we took from school.
"Five minutes later, a lady called me and said that Maku had been killed by cultists who shot him in the neck in his apartment.”

Another member of the forum, Bakare Ademuyiwa, said that on August 6, 2018, he received a message from a member of the Aye Confraternity. He said he was told Maku had been disturbing them from carrying out their activities in the school.

“I said that the forum is an anti-cultism group that had existed for many years in the school. I also pleaded with them not to attack Maku.

“I was shocked on Monday night when I received a call while watching the Premier League match between Manchester United and Tottenham that Maku had been killed by two Aye Confraternity members who attacked him in his apartment at Apete.”

“Maku was shot in the neck and the killers stabbed his neck with an axe several times. He graduated from Urban and Regional Planning Department of the school. The Students Forum has within the group, students and former students of the school.”

Spokesperson for OyoState Police Command, ASP Adekunle Ajisebutu, who confirmed the incident said some arrests were made and exhibits such as axes and cutlasses recovered.

How Nigerian man went from desperation to a doctorate in just six years

A Nigerian man has been conferred with a doctorate 6 years after he was homeless and hopeless in a foreign land.

Emmanuel Ilori arrived in Cape Town from Nigeria in 2012 expecting to be met by a "travel agent" recommended by a friend. Ilori had sent the agent money for his fees and accommodation at the University of the Western Cape. But it turned out the man was a fraud.

Ilori had no money left to return to Nigeria and also none to start a new life in South Africa. He also had nowhere to stay and was stranded. A church took pity on him and allowed him to sleep in a Sunday school room while he found work as a security guard.

Today, Ilori has been conferred with a doctorate in public administration at UWC‚ where he is an associate lecturer in the school of government‚ economics and management sciences.

Narrating his story, Ilori said:

I wasn’t going to ask my parents for money‚ because I left there with a commitment to my dad not to worry about me financially.

‘Tough times don’t last‚ but tough men do’‚ is what my dad used to teach me‚ and I often held on to those words.

Eventually, Ilori swallowed his pride and raised money from extended family in Nigeria‚ registering late for his honours degree in business‚ and later in 2012 he took part in the UWC/Oklahoma State University exchange programme‚ assisting young people in Khayelitsha and Gugulethu.

I taught and mentored new businesses in entrepreneurship development‚ skills development and capacity building‚ he said.

He travelled by rail throughout his honours programme‚ often sleeping in the UWC library because he missed the last train. After graduating‚ he enrolled for a master’s degree‚ and began studying towards his PhD in 2015.

In 2016‚ he spent seven months at the University of the West Timisoara‚ Romania‚ as a result of which UWC now has an exchange programme with the institution.

Ilori said:

UWC made me who I am today. The calibre of lecturers and resources impacted my knowledge and development.

The lecturers here are passionate about the development of students and they have a positive impact on them. They encourage the belief that you will make it with education; being educated means that you’re well-informed.

Ilori’s doctorate was one of 44 conferred on Monday.
