An SS1 student identified as Bankole Kamoli has been arrested for wearing an amulet popularly known as ‘igbadi’ to school.
The PUNCH reported that the SS1 student of Alapoti High School in Ado-Odo-Ota Local Government Area of Ogun State was arrested; by the men of the Ogun State-owned security outfit, So-Safe Corps.
Kamoli who was arrested on Tuesday evening was also found guilty of smoking; drinking; gambling; and committing other criminal activities; while putting on his school uniform.
The picture of Kamoli wearing the spiritual amulet has gone viral on the Internet since his arrest.
However, the school’s principal, Mrs Orenuga F B, insisted that Kamoli was “no longer a student of the school; because he was not available with his parents to sign the undertaking form; as directed by the state government,” she said.
The Oluwo of Iwoland, Oba Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi, has urged the Federal Government to increase the minimum wage for members of the Nigeria Police to N100,000.
The Oluwo made this known on Wednesday, January 26, in Ibadan, Oyo State, during a one-day town hall meeting organised by the Police Service Commission (PSC).
According to him, this will reduce the menace of bribery among police officers.
While explaining that in many advanced countries, policing was the envy of everybody; the traditional ruler charged the Federal Government to encourage Nigerians to join the force through more funding.
