Deeper Life High School Student, Shalom Omoniyi Among Other Who Bullied Don Davis, Speaks

Published

on


Shalom Omoniyi, one of the students who allegedly bullied Don-Davis Archibong at the Deeper Life High School, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, has spoken up about the incident.

Recall, Don-Davis alleged on Facebook Live that senior students of the school, including Shalom and one Ola, assaulted him severally while he was in their hostel.

He also claimed that he couldn’t report to the school authorities because the senior students threatened to kill him if he reported them.

However, in an interview with Vanguard, Omoniyi, a 13-year-old Senior School 1 student from Ekiti State, said their boarding master, Nseabasi Joseph, only asked him and Ola to help Don-Davis learn how to keep himself clean.

Shalom said Joseph only gave him the task because Don-Davis was his bunkmate for two weeks.

He said,

Don-Davis was my bunkmate. I resumed at the school on November 1, 2020, to meet him as my bunkmate. But I was told that he was removed from the Junior Students Hostel and put in the Senior Students Hostel because the boarding master of junior school, Mr. Akpan, was sick.

“We (Ola and I) did not bully him. I did not molest him. The boarding master, Joseph Nseabasi, asked us to make sure he was always clean because when he pooped or peed on himself, he didn’t clean up. And when he smelled, and we asked him if he defecated, he would say no.

“But when we asked him to pull down his boxers and bend down, we would discover that he defecated without cleaning his anus. We would now ask him to go and take his bath or clean himself. And when we noticed that his clothes were smelling, we would tell him to go and wash the clothes, but he would refuse. Instead, he would go and put the smelly clothes in his cupboard.”

The accused minor also said Don-Davis was moved back to the Junior Students Hostel when Akpan returned before the end of the term on December 19, 2020.

He also said that Don-Davis might have been angry that they (he and Ola) didn’t do the things the boarding master, Akpan, was doing for him before he fell ill, noting, “Mr. Akpan used to wash his clothes, bathe him. He also helped him to brush his teeth.

“Mr. Akpan returned to School before the school closed on December 19, 2020. When he returned, Don-Davis was also moved back to his former hostel. He was moved to the Senior Students Hostel because when Mr. Akpan was sick, the Junior Students Hostel did not have a boarding master. He was moved out of our hostel on November 15.”

Omoniyi also said a female nurse used to come at 6:30 am to give Don-Davis drugs every day on an empty stomach.

Asked if the School punished him and Ola for allegedly bullying and molesting Don-Davis, Omoniyi said he was never punished.

Don-Davis reported us to the school principal, (Mrs. Ndidi Solomon, already suspended) that Ola and I bullied him. The principal invited us to her office and told us that she was going to punish us. Even when we tried to explain things to her, she refused to listen. But she did not punish us.”

Father to the accused student, Olusegun Omoniyi, said his son has been admitted into the school from JSS1, and that he never received any bad report from the school about any misconduct on the part of his son.

He said he was therefore surprised when Don-Davis mentioned his son’s name in the matter.

He explained that even when the school principal, Ndidi Solomon, contacted him, saying she was going to punish his son, he was not given details of the offense he was said to have committed.

He said, “So, when I saw the story and the alleged involvement of my son, I decided to call my son and ask him why he bullied and molested the boy, but he said he did not do such a thing.

“I cannot force my son to tell a lie. And I also allowed him to make a statement to the police last Thursday.

“I am not worried about anything because I believe that my son is telling the truth and I know the truth will prevail, no matter how long it takes. In fact, the whole story is too shallow for me to believe.”

It was through the work I was doing with the company that Nigerians got to know me, because when they gets to know me,whosoever is seeking for job or someone that needs another job, I do bring them into the company I was working so that’s the reason why Nigerians in France gets to know me.

Because when I got here I suffered without knowing anyone, when I arrived France, Nigerians were only 25 in numbers. The reason why it was 25 was because of those from Togo and Abidjan, those from Nigeria were not more than 15. The same thing that happened to me because I know no one, I don’t want such to happen to those coming behind that is why I brought those I ought to bring, those that need help I brought them into the company, some are still in France, some have left to America, some have left to London but some are still here in France as we speak that can testify to what I am saying.

It was through the cleaning company alot of people got to know me. I retired while still working at my cleaning company.

HOW DID YOU BECOME A KING IN FRANCE?

Kingship came in unexpectedly one day while sitting at home. I didn’t know investigations were going on underneath before we got to know one early morning at 8:00am in the year 2018. They came to tell us we have been elected by the people to become Yoruba leader in France. I was shocked that day because I and my wife were sleeping when they arrived. When they entered my house, they were like 7 to 8 people from different regions. At longrun I had to accept with them because they begged me they were sorry I wasn’t informed, they don’t inform the person chose, it’s the people that said its Aderonmu they want.

 

WHY DO THEY CHOOSE TO HAVE A KING IN FRANCE?

It’s the Yorubas in France that stood up and said they ought to have a leader because before Yorubas were not much compare to now, so if they are having a leader, they will know where to report issues bothering them to.

WHAT IS YOUR ROLE AS A KING?

My role as a King in this town is to bring unity among the Yorubas. A lot of things are happening and they have no one to report to. I want to be of help to those who arrived seeking for advice to move on, and to those who have been around but does not know the way forward, I am to show them the way and also to those facing Embassy problem, I want to help sort out the problem. I am to provide solutions for my people.

Also to our children, we want them to know the importance of a King in Yoruba land, importance of Yoruba culture and also their role to their parents, all these are what we are planning to do.

 

WHAT IS YOUR ROLE AS A KING?

I am to re-organize my community, I am to seek for love among Yorubas, to listen to what is going on and settle things amicably so everybody can be at peace.

 

HOW DOES BEING A KING AFFECT YOUR LIFE?

Things I can’t do since I became the king are I can’t go out alone when invited for a ceremonial event except my Chiefs follows me, and when at an event I can’t eat there because a King doesn’t eat outside except when served at home before going out. I am being called to intervene in a lot of things on phone so many times, sometimes till 12:00am am still on call and sometimes it’s from 8:00am I would have been on call till in the afternoon to settle things disturbing them or they having a uestions which I will be answering to.  I must always pick whenever my phone rings so my people won’t be angry.

The places I do go to in the morning or afternoon to jog, I can’t go again except am having something very important that I can do all by myself.

Since I became a King, they told me the Kings Palace is always open to everyone from Nigeria and I also have open the door for them to enter, to call me, to seek for advice or if they need anything from me, I am available for them 24hrs because I have no other job than to take care of my people’s need.

ARE YOU CURRENTLY WORKING?

Presently, since I have retire from work that gives me time to work for my Yoruba people from Nigeria. Because they can call for my attention anytime, so nothing can hinder me from paying attention to them or being present. I have no other work greater than theirs

 

ARE YOU RECOGNIZED IN NIGERIA AS KING IN FRANCE?

By the grace of God and the power of Olodumare, we went to places we ought to before getting here. In Nigeria we went to places we ought to and we got to places we ought to before our Asa day (cultural day) that came up on 23rd of July, 2022, such that a lot of people showed up.

On that day what really made us happy was that our father, Ooniof Ife sent us a representative who came to deliver his messagewith some other Kings like Apena, Ibafo from Nigeria also diaspora Kings also came around.

Apart from the Kings, we saw Nigeria Ambassador in France who was also present that day.

Also our Mayor  sent a representative to come see our AsawaDay (cultural day) that we were doing and also some businessmen and those whose names I do not know that came from Europe, we all celebrated that day together.

WHAT ARE YOU PLANNING FOR NIGERIANS IN FRANCE?

Works starts immediately after we celebrated our first Asawaday(cultural day) in France because there are alot of things that committee of Chiefs are planning alongside with me, that we need to set up a committee who will find out what the people want, what we need to do for them and where do they want to send us because we want to be the people’s messenger so that bad things they’ve gone through won’t repeat itself, we want the good ones to keep happening.

Those committee will be looking after the welfare of Yoruba children in France like what do they want, what do they need, where are they going where they are coming from so we can know what we will do for them .

 

WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO SAY TO NIGERIANS IN FRANCE?

What I want for all Yoruba children even Nigerians all together,is that we should all be united, we should live in love, we should be one so we can achieve all we need to achieve. Whenever there is misunderstanding, we should settle it, we should not fight or keep malice.

We should all come together and become one that is what I amworking towards so all can turn out well and by the grace of Grace, it will surly turn out well because one must put into consideration the role of a leader  is to promote unity.  Wherever there is dispute or fight, I want us all to be one. Because when one becomes a leader, people must see changes in society.

“Though the family members are not saying anything yet because they are still in sh●ck but until anybody says stop, the standard procedure is to conduct an autopsy and we are going to follow that procedure just like in any case of d¥ath,” the source said.

Explaining further, the source said out of the eight domestic workers interrogated by the police in connection with Ifeanyi’s d¥ath, the cook and nanny, whose job was to cater for the wellbeing of the three-year-old boy, had been detained for reasons including the failure to uphold the duty of care of the minor.As of the time of filing this report, the nanny and cook were said to still be in detention.

“Legbegbe welcome back” -Nigerians react as Toyin Abraham’s ex-lover Seun Egbegbe regains freedom after 3 years

Published

on


Nollywood actress, Toyin Aimaku‘s ex-lover, Olajide Kareem, better known as Seun Egbegbe, has regained his freedom after spending roughly three years and six months in prison.

He was locked up on February 10, 2017, after obtaining money by false pretence from no fewer than 40 bureaus de change operators in different parts of Lagos from 2015 to 2017.

Seun Egbegbe, who was the boss of Ebony Production, allegedly swindled the BDC operators out of money by claiming that he had naira to change into foreign currencies and vice versa.

He had been arraigned by the police for a series of fraud involving N39,098,100, $90,000 and £12,550. Egbegbe and one Oyekan Ayomide were first arraigned on February 10, 2017, before Justice Oluremi Oguntoyinbo, on 36 counts bordering on advance fee fraud.

The charge sheet was subsequently amended twice, with the counts eventually increased to 40 and three other defendants – Lawal Kareem, Olalekan Yusuf and Muyideen Shoyombo.
In a recent development, Federal High Court, Ikoyi has found Egbegbe guilty of just one of the 44 Counts charges after reviewing his case.

Toyin Aimaku’s ex-lover was set free yesterday 11th October 2022. Justice Oluremi Oguntoyinbo declared that 43 of the 44 Count charges were dismissed because of a lack of witnesses to substantiate their claims.
She also denounced that the prosecuting team failed in the responsibility to produce evidence, to be backed with witnesses.

Lamenting that police tampered with the money recovered from the suspects, Justice Oguntoyinbo also ruled that all the money recovered from Egbegbe as evidence should be returned to him.
Nigerians welcomed Seun Egbegbe back after spending three years in prison with hard labour. Some reactions are shown below:

dhbwholesalesenterprises said, “iPhone 1 legbe gbe gbe welcome back, now iPhone is up to 14 waka jeje ooo

”.
yendishomebargains said, “Guy will come out and see that the world he was trying to please and flaunt for has left him behind , the world doesn’t really care , just try and live well”.
iam_igbinedionsammy said, “Police tampered with the money recovered from the suspects. Is anyone surprised? Certainly not me. Its the Nigerian Police in all its thieving glory”.
dattechguy said, “iPhone 1 legbegbe, Toyin Abraham your ex boo is back”.
