Published

on

A nude video alleged to be of Nasarawa deputy speaker and Senator-elect, Godiya Akwashiki, has gone viral.

The first of five images shows the lawmaker in a 16-second clip being molested after he was stripped naked.

The second shows him seated naked in a car, with only a torn singlet on.

The third picture shows him seated on a floor, also naked.

Another shows him in a hospital bed, with two people by his side.

However, in the video, the lawmaker was hit several times by two people, while he repeatedly said, “Sorry”.

But they produced a belt and folded his arm backward, and started to bind him.

And a voice in the background kept saying, “Give him water”.

In all the videos and still images, he was shown nude without underwear, except one in which he had a singlet on

However, two of the people who beat him were visible in the clip: one in a red T-shirt, the other in yellow.

The Deputy Speaker, who is now outgoing, represents Akwanga in the Nasarawa State House of Assembly (NSHA) and just last week, he won election to represent Nasarawa North in the Senate.

It was alleged that the lawmaker was arrested with a married woman in a hotel in Maitama, Abuja, but the woman was not shown in the video or in the still picture.

A source said the Nasarawa State government convened an emergency meeting on Saturday over the video that went viral.

When contacted, the mobile number of the lawmaker Akwashiki was switched off, but it was reported that his house was filled with sympathizers in the evening when he returned to Nasarawa from Abuja.

Officials of the Nasarawa information ministry and the senator-elect’s APC party have not responded to Daily Trust enquiries.

Director-General of media and strategy to the State Governor, Yakubu Lamai and the Nasarawa State Police PPRO did not reply the SMS sent to them as of the time of wiring this report.

But police in the FCT confirmed that the case was reported but said the lawmaker was not in police custody.

Spokesman, DSP Anjuguri Manzah, said, “We are investigating the matter.”

We lack authority to deregister political parties – INEC

Published

on

The Independent National Electoral Commission said it lacked the constitutional power to deregister any of the existing 91 political parties in the country.

The INEC Federal Commissioner in charge of Nasarawa, Kogi and Kwara States, Malam Muhammed Haruna, made this known on Monday in Lokoja while declaring open a post-election review meeting on the last general elections.

Haruna said that the clamour by Nigerians for a reduction in the number of registered parties could only be done through an amendment of the Constitution.

He agreed that the provisions in the 1999 Constitution that state that parties must be national in outlook and have headquarters in Abuja had led to unexpected problems but explained that INEC was helpless.

The Commissioner advocated a consensus among stakeholders to resolve the issue, explaining that constitutional amendment was the only way out.

Haruna identified logistics as the major challenge the INEC encountered in the process of conducting the last general elections, saying that steps would be taken to prevent a re-occurrence.

Lecturer queried over alleged sex scandal

Published

on

The management of Ekiti State University, Ado Ekiti led by the acting Vice-Chancellor, Prof Olubunmi Ajayi, on Friday issued a query to a lecturer of the institution, allegedly fingered in a sex-for-marks scandal.

Head, Directorate of Information, EKSU, Bode Olofinmuagun, said this in a statement in Ado Ekiti on Saturday, adding that the institution “would not condone any act of sexual harassment in the university.”

He also said, “The attention of the management of EKSU has been drawn to a video that has gone viral on an alleged sex scandal involving one of its lecturers.

“The video allegedly fingered one Dr O. O. Aduwo of the Department of Accounting.”

He added that the institution had “as such, issued a query to the concerned lecturer to defend himself against the allegation, as a first step in the spirit of due process.

“Thereafter, a panel of investigation would be constituted to get to the root of the matter, while the findings of the panel would be made public. The general public is hereby assured that management would continue to be transparent and would not allow such a matter that could smear its good image to be swept under the carpet.”

Students alleged that the lecturer went to a female student’s residence to have sex with her in exchange for marks, unknowingly for him that other students had laid in wait at the place to embarrass him.

According to some students who preferred anonymity, the lecturer was about to begin the “immoral act” when other students appeared, dragging him out and assaulted him.

A video that had gone viral about the alleged sex scandal showed the lecturer in towel, pleading for mercy from the students who mocked and tortured him, as he struggled to resist being drawn out of the room into the public glare.

But a student said on Saturday that the incident took place in the lecturer’s house, adding that it was “a set-up”, allegedly “to teach him some bitter lessons.”
