The Delta State Government says tertiary institutions in the state are free to reopen between now and October 2, depending on the school’s arrangements to ensure safety of their students.

The Commissioner for Higher Education, Patrick Muoboghare, made the clarification on Thursday in Asaba while briefing journalists on the government’s preparedness for tertiary institutions in the state to reopen for academic activities.

According to him, the directive is that tertiary institutions should reopen between now and October 2, meaning that by October 2, all the tertiary institutions should have resumed fully.

“We decided that they can resume in phases, depending on the school’s arrangements; we gave them between now and October 2.

“They are not going to resume all programmes and levels at the same time, except those that have the facilities that can accommodate social distancing,” Muoboghare said.

The commissioner explained that the students’ resumption would be in phases and by Oct. 2, resumption would have been completed in conformity with the COVID-19 safety protocols.

Mr Muoboghare also explained that the media had earlier reported that the institutions would reopen on October 2, whereas what the government was saying was that they could resume in phases before October 2.

According to him, the ministry is making plans to ensure that the education sector in the state does not suffer more than it had, as there are losses already.

“Secondary schools started with the external examination, and so when WAEC decided to fix a date for the final year students to write their examinations, Delta has to key into it.

“If the principals can manage those younger ones, because of what the government has put in place, we hope that we can manage the older ones.

“From June/July, we have been having interactions with the heads of higher institutions on preparation for resumption and meeting the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) guidelines so that if there is any suspected case, the school can isolate and immediately contact NCDC.”

Newsmen recall that the institutions in the state were shut down in the wake of the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic in the country to contain its spread.

The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The defence counsel, Taiye Okoya, applied for bail citing Section 36, subsection 5 of the 1999 Constitution urging the court to grant bail to the defendant pending the determination of the case.

The Judge, Mr Muhammad Adamu, admitted the defendant to bail in the sum of N200, 000 with one reasonable surety.

Aggrieved members of Imo State Registered Contractors yesterday protested over the non-payment of over N4.2 billion owed them by the Imo State Government.

The contractors, who protested in front of Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC) in Abuja, said that they were awarded contracts by the immediate past governor of Imo STATE, Rt Hon. Emeka Ihedioha to execute a number of projects such as renovation of  schools, construction of  new schools (primary schools and junior secondary schools)  before the administration was sacked by the Supreme Court. But Senator Hope Uzodinma, who succeeded him, pleaded with the contractors to continue their projects, a development that persuaded them to borrow money from their banks to complete the projects.

Some of the placards read: "Banks and financial institutions have taken over our property",  "Save our property from creditors",  "Contractors are dying of starvation",  Interests on loans are piling," etc.

Addressing newsmen in Abuja, the Chairman of the contractors, Honourable Williams Ejiakor, said that the contractors protested in front of UBEC, because the commission is a major stakeholder and having supervised and released its own counterpart funds, the commission  should prevail on the Imo State Government to pay them.

"We renovated schools, built new schools---primary schools and junior secondary schools. We have 261 renovations and new buildings, as well as  23 boreholes and desks. The contract was  awarded  by the immediate past governor of Imo State, Emeka Ihedioha. We did the jobs on January 14, 2020. When the new governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma came on board, he made a nationwide broadcast on January 16, 2020,  and urged us to go back to site and finish our jobs. We obliged him, only to be told in March when some of us had finished our jobs that he was not going to pay.

"The annoying part of it is that the fund for this job is domiciled in Owerri branch of Zenith Bank. Our members are suffering. We can no longer pay our bills. We lost one of our members three week ago, because she could not afford to pay her medical bills.

"So, we have come to Abuja to seek help from UBEC as a senior partner in this matter to prevail on Imo State Government to pay us our money, because a worker deserves his wages. Those jobs followed all known due processes, " he said.

According to Ejiakor, UBEC has advised  the governor to pay them, but the governor is insisting that he would not pay for contracts awarded by Emeka Ihedioha.

"The management of UBEC has advised the state government to pay us. Why he has refused to pay is what I don't know. Most of us borrowed money from banks, and the interest is piling every day. We lost a woman  three weeks ago. We are appealing to Senator Hope Uzodinma to temper justice with mercy and pay us our money. We did not commit any crime by working for the state.  Government is a continuum," the chairman noted.

One Solomon Ede, a security guard who was in the habit of never failing to wear his face mask in order to protect himself against the dreaded coronavirus otherwise called Covid-19 has reportedly been suffocated to death.

On Friday, August 28, the 50-year-old private guard popularly called Baba Rita and attached to a building in Alako area of Abeokuta, was said to have gone to bed without removing his face mask shortly after he took a local gin popularly called ogogoro.

STATE PRESS learnt that his lifeless body was found face down with his face mask the next day, suggesting that he died of suffocation from the face mask.

Sources revealed that neighbours who came to fetch water at the compound of the house where the deceased worked as a guard until his death banged on the gate of the building endlessly but Ede did not come out to grant them access to the tap.

It was said that the noise at the gate of the building alerted Ede's boss who opened the gate for the visitors and decided to check on Ede in his room, but the door to his room was firmly shut. His boss then forced the door of the apartment tucked inside the security house of the building open only to find Ede lying face down on the bed lifeless and with his face mask in place.

The boss was said to have raised the alarm which attracted other residents to the building, with many blaming the deceased's tragic death on his obsession with alcohol.


The news of the guard's death triggered emotions as sympathisers had a hectic time consoling his widow, who had rushed to the scene on receiving the news of her husband's death.

It was said that the expectant wife of the deceased's boss was shell-shocked and almost passed out at the scene but for the quick intervention of female sympathisers who took her away.

A source said: "But for the noise from those who came to fetch water in the early hours of the day, no one would have known that a tragedy had occurred.

"It was when the deceased failed to come out of his apartment to attend to those fetching water in the premises of the house that his boss came out and discovered his body."

 
Shocked by the discovery, the unnamed Ede's employer reported the matter to a police division at Kemta, Idi Aba.

Sources said the deceased was recently persuaded by his boss to open an account in a bank for the purpose of receiving his salary, following the way he was lavishing his money on alcohol.

A neighbour who spoke in confidence said: "Earlier on the day of his unfortunate death, his employer reminded him of their previous discussion about opening a bank account so he could be paying his salary into the account without delay, especially when he is out of town.

"He was to be paid his salary same Saturday his lifeless body was found in his room."

Some sympathisers revealed that Ede took to alcohol after suffering depression. He was said to have been warned by his employer and residents of the neighbourhood many times to desist from excessive consumption of the local gin.

"He usually removed his face mask before going to bed. But he took some ogogoro late in the evening and was downcast. Those who saw him at the entrance of his apartment asked him to remove the mask on his face and go to bed, but he refused.

"However, he went to bed forgetting to remove his face mask and slept face down. He was probably choked to death by the face mask," said a source who spoke in confidence.

The source added: "No one would believe that he started working as a guard in the building in March this year, because he was a likable fellow who related with everyone pleasantly. Hence, he had unhindered access to his boss' apartment.

"He was a very easy going man, only that he could not restrain himself from indulging in the consumption of local gin which eventually led him to wear a face mask to bed, leading to his death."

A resident identified simply as Olamilekan disclosed that the deceased had rebuffed those who pleaded with him to retire to bed when he was discovered to be drunk.

"He was sighted on Friday seated at the entrance of his apartment at the security house where he worked. He was looking downcast and was asked to go into his room but he refused. It was shocking that he died overnight.

"From the look of things and without prejudice to police investigations on the cause of his death, he was so drunk and probably forgot to remove his face mask before sleeping face down and suffocating to death."

Policemen from Kemta Police Division in Idi Aba were said to have evacuated the body of the deceased to the mortuary at the State General Hospital at Ijaiye, Abeokuta.

The spokesman of Ogun State Police Command, Abimbola Oyeyemi, a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), promised to revert to our correspondent when he was contacted on the phone.

He said: "I haven't heard about the incident, but I will confirm the story from the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) in charge of Kemta Division and get back to you," he said.

He, however, had not done so at press time.

A businessman has played a tape recording before the Justice Ayo Salami-led Presidential Probe Panel on how some operatives of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), popularly known as Magu's boys used a lawyer to demand bribery of N75m to be paid into different accounts.

According to PR Nigeria, The businessman, Mr. Donald Wokoma of Damijay Integrated Services Limited tendered an affidavit of fact in support of a petition he wrote against 'Magu Boys' for extortion before unfreezing his account.

The EFCC had in 2018 refused to obey the order of Justice O.C. Agbaza to lift the restrictions on the account of Damijay Services Limited, after the firm had filed a suit for fundamental rights enforcement at the FCT High Court.

An Abuja-based lawyer, Barrister Victor Giwa who was allegedly involved in the deal, the Economic confidential gathered did not deny his voice in the 27 minutes tape recording that was played before the panel where he mentioned names of suspended Chairman of EFCC, Ibrahim Magu among other operatives over the bribery allegation.

Barrister Giwa was the former lawyer to the company on the case with the EFCC.

Meanwhile, in the affidavit sighted by the Economic Confidential, the businessman alleged that on or around 20th of May, 2020 Barrister Victor Giwa asked him to sign three blank cheques (valued at 25 million Naira each), which he would hand over to the people in EFCC to enable them unfreeze the account.

The petitioner had revealed that the said "Magu boys", had sent three different bank accounts namely Cikin Gida Nigeria Limited with account number: 1771773211, at Polaris Bank; Black and Black Global Concept Limited with account number: 0259011841 with Gtbank and Amina Kigbu with account number: 2176716071 with Zenith Bank for the payment of the alleged bribe.

When the cheques were not honoured by the bank, the Magu boys requested that the businessman should execute an Irrevocable Standing Payment Order (on the company's official letterhead) in favour of the three bank accounts and later demanded for 40% of the money in the company's account (which aggregates to One Hundred Million Naira) which the businessman outrightly rejected.

After rejecting their last demand, the businessman said that: "On the 9th of July, 2020, Mr. Mohammed Goje of EFCC called me to come to their office the next day being 10th July, 2020 (Friday). I honoured the invitation and stayed for long hours only for me to be informed by him (around 5: 09pm after I had left) that I have been charged to Court by sms and that I was to appear before the F.C.T. High Cout sitting at Lugbe by 8:30 am on Monday, 13th July, 2020 to be with a copy of the charge and arraigned simultaneously.

"He warned me via the sms to 'endeavour to come to avoid unnecessarily embarrassment.' On the 13th of July, 2020 while at the Lugbe High Court, I was served with an Amended Charge dated and filed on the 19th day of June, 2020 (exactly 2 days after I outrightly rejected their fresh demand of 40% of the total sum of the money in the company's account).

"The said amended charge was signed by one ABBA MUHAMMED of Legal and Prosecution Department of the EFCC with Supreme Court No: (SCN046977). Upon going through the documents served on me in Court, I discovered to my chagrin that there is an earlier charge dated the 3rd day of January, 2019 and filed on the 4th day of January, 2019 signed by one AISHA A. T. HABIB from the Legal & Prosecution Department of the EFCC with Supreme Court No: SCN014045. This particular charged of 4th January, 2019 (which is over a year and five months) was never served on me."

It went on to add that: "After presenting the petition to the Honourable Attorney-General of the Federation and specifically on Monday, the 6th day of August, 2020, I called Barrister VICTOR GIWA and informed him that a copy of the correspondences he has been exchanging with the operatives of the EFCC would be needed at the office of the Honourable Attorney-General of the Federation in support of the petition.

"In response to my request as per the preceding paragraph, Barrister VICTOR GIWA told me over the phone that he has been receiving calls from agents of the EFCC and that in particular one AISHA of the EFCC was crying and pleading with him not to expose them else her career would be ruined.

"He (Barrister VICTOR GIWA) further said that some other EFCC officials, which he has been corresponding with, called him to query him on why he allowed me to write the petition to the Honourable Attorney-General of the Federation and demanded that the said petition (Exhibit Dami 1) be withdrawn else there would be consequences after the storm currently buffeting the Commission.

"Barrister VICTOR GIWA further told me that those EFCC officials reminded him that he is a young Lawyer and that he has a lot before him and that he should not forget that what is happening at the EFCC at the time was a tussle between the Honourable AGF and the suspended Acting Chairman of the EFCC and boasted that things would soon return to normal at the EFCC. They thereafter asked him to call me so we could have a meeting where the matter would be effectively resolved.

"On 7th August, 2020, I instructed Barrister Johnmary Jideobi to call Barrister Victor and remind him of the request I made on him the previous night. Barrister VICTOR GIWA told Barrister Johnmary Jideobi that he was not going to make the correspondences yet available to me because he had those discussions with the EFCC people in confidence and that we should not join the fray of what was/is happening because no one knows tomorrow. That he would not want to offend the people who gave him the information in confidence since he should be honourable enough not to do things that would offend them. Barrister VICTOR GIWA later told Barrister Johnmary Jideobi that he would call him back and hung up but never did that day
