Again, Soldiers, Policemen Brutalize Students Of ABSU

poStudents of Abia State University, ABSU, who were on a peaceful demonstration to protest the planned revocation of the degree awarded former governor of the state, Dr Orji Uzor Kalu by the institution, were molested by soldiers and policemen yesterday.

The students who had converged on the administrative block as early as 7am to prevent a Senate meeting over the matter – which is believed to be the continuation of the persecution of the former governor, were beaten black and blue and whisked away by combined team of soldiers and mobile policemen.

The protest had started in a peaceful manner and within thirty minutes, the team of security operatives stormed the campus, beating every student on sight, including those who were not part of the protest. In the ensuing milieu, students and staff were seen scampering for safety.

It would be recalled that Kalu had cut short his degree programme at the University of Maiduguri and had transferred his transcripts and other details to Abia State University, where he completed the programme and earned a Bachelors degree when he was governor.

It is believed in some quarters that Governor Theodore Orji who is in a running battle of supremacy with Kalu, set the motion in play for the revocation of the degree certificate the university awarded to his predecessor.

Orji Kalu who is not in the country, has called on well-meaning people of Abia State and Nigeria to call T. A. Orji to order saying “…no human being, except God, has the power to determine any other person’s destiny.”

  1. dats 4 u guyz outside abia state 2 knw dat dia’s nothing like democracy here in abia. people are made 2 pay outrageous levies by d govt yet d state is d worst in terms of infrastructural developement in d whole of africa. no one has d right 2 protest or say anythn against d governor else d persn will be beatn black and blue by law enforcement agents and d governors paid touts & holigans. jonathan pls com 2 our aids cos we are suffern under dis dictator & thief called T.A ORJI.

  2. God will punish that idiot,soon his tenure will expire,i dislike that man so much,i wished that those soldiers that beat his son could have killed him,sending soldiers to beat students,if i were those students ,we will sue that idiot.students should not stop protesting

  3. What a shame!If you must fight your boss,why fight dirty?why beat up innocent students.May God forgive you Gov T.A Orji.

  4. one thing everyone must knw is dat D evil dat men do live wit them Orji install him there 4 us 2 suffer T A is nw returnin the ministry pharo pls leav d student we beg u

  5. I don’t give a fuck about orji uzor kalu because he was as hopeless and useless a governor as the current imbecile T.A. Orji. Both of them deserve to be hanged and thrown into a pit. Abia state has had neither progress nor direction under these two subhumans. We need an Akpabio or Fashola to come to our aid in abia state.

  6. These ppl are trying to create a police state. First Nasarawa, now Abia. Revolution is forth coming in this country. Keep pushing ppl to d wall. ‘1 day b 1 day. Monkey go go market e no go com bak.’

  7. Beating up students on a peaceful protest so to say is condemnable. However,we from the state are aware dat both men hv been on the neck of each other after thier relationship went awry;and OUK has not ceased one bit looking 4 a way 2 pull down the incumbent governor whom he introctrinated to follow in his foot steps.Recently, OUK boys hv been infiltrating LG headquarters in Abia state to campaign and share posters of OUK et al…these things are not needful now as 2015 is still some distance away.The fact remains dat most OUK’s kinsmen wud not want to see anything good in T A Orji’s administration and cud swallow anything hook,line and sinker to tarnish the governors image bcos he deserted their brother OUK; even when itz obvious dat no human is perfect. The students who organised the protests were duly instigated and their elbows greeced to carry out that protest in order to forestall the revocation of OUK’s degree cert from ABSU and if need be obstruct the academic process of dat institution.The issue of OUK’s degree cert from ABSU and the underlying game plans and deception were open secret even during OUK’s tenure as a governor.Some of mercenaries he used to manipulate he used were known and wat he OUK thought was a masterful gameplan and secret were known in details by any common man who cared to know.it is also not surpring dat ones T A orji is mentioned any media,the kinsmen of OUK wud be in the forefront of castigating and casting aspersions on the incumbent.My advise to them is to be aware dat whatever accessment given to T A Orji today was occasioned by OUK for personal interest.

My advise to u dear students is dat u shudn’t allow anybody 2 use u 4 their selfish political interests just bcos they greeced ur palms with some few coins.concentrate on ur studies 4 dat is why u are in school,not to protest 4 any politician.After all, na u soldier or police go beat or kill; no be dia children.A word is enough 4 the wise.

  11. “In a community that is sane” The security agencies are responsible for the protection of lives and properties of the citizens! Why then should this type of inhuman, molestational act come from them? Why are they being used as political and disguntus element to prevent justice! I know this act is aimed at tanishing the good image the Nigerian Police is Building, under the leadership of MD Abubakar. I therefore call on the well meaning officers in the Nigeria Police, to fishout such disgraceful men in the force.

  12. only God we save the students from all these people that are so cheeky to humanity that called theirselves our leaders or what so ever they like. Well God will surely see us through and His will be done in our life. NOTE. The wickend ones will never go on punished and what so ever a man sow so shall it reap.

  13. Nigeria cries everywhere over corrupt manners in politics but we the youths what are we saying to this. It is only the illitrates that filled the political cycle and where there is/are literate(s) he is/they are just educated fool(s). Can someone foresee the future of our political environment?
