No fewer than 10 pupils were injured as students of St. James Anglican School, in the Kola Balogun area of Osogbo, Osun State, on Mondayclashed against their colleagues at Ansar-U-Deen Secondary School, Iludun.
Eyewitnesses told our correspondent that most of the students engaged in the clash belonged to rival cult groups.
Residents of the area said the students had clashedon Fridayand a student almost lost his arm in the fight.
It was gathered that students, who were injured during theMondayclash, were rushed to a hospital where they were treated.
There were conflicting reports on the cause of theMondayclash.
Some said it was a fight over a girl while other said it was a reprisal by a group whose member was injuredon Friday.
A female student said, “Just as we were about settling down in school this morning, friends of the student of Saint James’ student, who was injured during last week fight, stormed our school and started using matchete and charms on us.
“Some students were injured. We learnt that it was a reprisal, one student, who was said to be a cult guy, was said to have been beaten by members of a rival group and others came on a revenge mission.”
The Police Public Relations Officer in Osun State, Mrs. Folasade Odoro, did not pick calls put across to her telephone while the text message sent to her telephone set was not responded to.
However, the Public Relations Officer of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps in the state, Mr. Ayo Olowe, confirmed the incident to our correspondent on the telephone.
He said three students were injured while some of the students were arrested by the police.

Politics / Violence In Ede Over Killing Of Gang Leader (elemo) by salaksmana(m): 6:36pm On Nov 17
There was violence in Ede, Osun State, on Monday as hoodlums invaded the residence of a man identified as Lukman a.k.a Elemo and killed him.
Our correspondent gathered that the killing was carried out in the early hours of the day.
Elemo, who was said to be the leader of a gang known as Atapara Base was said to have been killed by members of a rival gang known as ‘Farombi Group.’
The killing reportedly triggered a large scale violence as members of the deceased’s gang who were seething with rage were said to have brought his corpse in a wheel barrow to the Palace of the Timi of Ede.
The angry youths were said to have stormed the palace fully armed while pushing the wheel barrow bearing the remains of Elemo. The development caused panic as students who were going to their various schools were said to have run in various directions while some of them were injured in the process.
Shop owners also refused to open for the fear of been hit by various dangerous weapons which members of the aggrieved group were brandishing.
There were reported cases of bloody clash as members of the two warring groups engaged each other at various points within the town.
A resident of the town who identified himself as Taiwo told our correspondent that a house was razed down before policemen and other security agents drafted to quell the riot could overpower the hoodlums.
He said, “The whole town became tensed after Elemo was killed. I heard that his head was cut off although this is difficult to ascertain. But his corpse was taken to the palace.
” Some people were injured and I cannot say if others were killed because the two rival groups engaged each other in fights in some areas in the town.”
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Mrs. Folasade Odoro, confirmed the killing to our correspondent on the telephone.

Education / 2014 WASSCE: Osun Is 22 Out Of 36 States And FCT. 19.54% passed by salaksmana(m): 11:52am On Aug 30
With all the billions of Naira spent by the government of the state, with all the policies put in place by the government as a result of recommendations from erudite academics like Wole Soyinka, with all the local and international awards, 47,672 students wrote WASSCE in Osun, 9,316 had 5 credits & above (including Maths and English) i.e. only 19.54% passed. We should not forget that those who wrote the exam include private schools students (who I'm sure has the higher % of those that passed). I want to believe PDP paid the students to fail intentionally in order to undermine the hardworking governor. Don't be deceived people, all you read and hear are all propaganda. We'll all see as events unfold in the next 4 years.

Politics / Re: Osun: Who Won The Election? by salaksmana(m): 11:14am On Aug 11
Considering what happened in 2011 and the people's view on the government of Jonathan, about 40% of osun electorate may decide to snub next year's general election.
Politics / Osun: Who Won The Election? by salaksmana(m): 11:05am On Aug 11
Congratulations Ogbeni, it was a clear victory, but lets wait and see how things play out in the next for years.
I do not want to believe that I would be the only one who is looking at the just concluded governorship election in Osun State differently. I am certain that dispassionate observers of the trend and dimensions of the election would be agitated by the same question, ‘Who won at Osun?’ In 2011, during the general elections, Rauf Aregbesola was barely a year on the saddle as the governor of Osun State. The Osun electorate had yet to test the man by having a taste of his style and method of leadership. The people’s expectations were, as could be said, relatively high. In anticipation of the good governance promised by Aregbesola’s party personified by the exploits of the two-time Commissioner of Work in Lagos State, they decided to give him the benefit of the doubt. The electorate in Osun voted massively for the then Action Congress of Nigeria represented by Aregbesola. The support was total. Suffice it to say that the then ACN got as much as 90 per cent of the total votes cast in an election which was not as thoroughly monitored and well-supervised as the Saturday election.
The situation that played out in Osun was not the same in other southwestern states. In Ekiti, where the events that brought about the emergence of Governor Kayode Fayemi was akin to that which gave birth to Aregbesola, the people were still in love with this gap-toothed and soft-spoken PhD holder in War Studies. Pensions were still regular; gratuities were still paid as and when due; there were not so many arrears of promotions and other subsidiary allowances like leave bonuses. However, the voters, just as was the case in the other parts of the South-West, based on the result of the presidential poll, expressed their desire to hook up with the government at the centre. The people voted for Goodluck Jonathan of the Peoples Democratic Party but the margin was not much. The result was, as can be said, 50/50. Needless to say, Jonathan won the presidential election despite losing about 98 per cent of the votes cast in Osun and in some other parts of the North.
Now, with Aregbesola having been fairly tested, the Osun electorate have made a statement. And the statement is clear. The candidate of the PDP, Iyiola Omisore, as the figures indicate, did not win. But, did the PDP completely lose? The total votes garnered by Omisore were more than what gave Ayo Fayose victory in the Ekiti election which was held in June. Omisore’s votes were nearly twice what brought Aregbesola to power as established by an Appeal Court judgment in November 2010.
Considering the fact that those who had a reason to vote against such a “performing governor” as Aregbesola in the election would still have enough reasons to snub him in 2015
, does this not spell doom for the opposition in the forthcoming general elections? Simply put, if the PDP retains its popularity in most or all the places it won in 2011 (like the South-East, South-South and North-Central) and gains 49.5 per cent sympathy as is the present case in Osun, what do we think would be the overall result? The APC must wake up to this reality.
Although Omisore may not have won the election, the PDP did not lose. Osun was almost entirely for the opposition until the masses tested what they could offer.

Culture / Re: Is Traditional Marriage Complete Marriage? by salaksmana(m): 10:54pm On Aug 10
SenatorJames: My interests are:
-i want to spend less on wedding
-as a christian i believe in pastoral blessing
-i want it legalized (certificate)

I'm a fan of simple marriage, just that one have to consider the lady's interest. But do you think it's a bad idea to go to court (for certificate purpose) and invite a pastor to a traditional wedding (today's termed engagement) for blessing (or is it until someone put on white gown and suit inside the church, before the blessing can come)?
To be sincere IMO it isn't compulsory to stand before the altar before the blessing can come. People this days do meet there pastors to inform them that they wouldn't be coming to church in order to reduce expenses. It all depends on your belief, the bride and the pastor's disposition to the issue. Mind you court wedding doesn't make wedding less expensive, remember most of the money are spent at engagement and reception, it depends on how elaborate you decide to make it. This days people get married in church without inviting anybody, only the pastor, some elders of the church and immediate families will be aware. I've seen at least 5 of such church wedding, you can adopt that style in order to receive the blessing directly from the altar.

Customary marriage certificate? Then that makes it a court wedding sis.
Culture / Re: Is Traditional Marriage Complete Marriage? by salaksmana(m): 7:40am On Aug 10
Amya:

Yes the court of law recognizes a traditional marriage which has normally has no certification if there's evidence to prove the following
1. Parental consent to the couple

2. Presence of at least 2 witnesses to the marriage.

With just this 2 evidences above, any Nigerian court (not necessarily a customary court) recognizes a traditional marriage as a legal union.
So in case of anything, what will they present, there parent and two witnesses? The fact that traditional marriages are not backed by certificate issue under the Nigerian law still makes it incomplete.

You say traditonal law is complete, yet in the same breath you say it's not binding under the law. And you even got ignorant likes for this.

Traditional marriages are complete and BINDING under the Nigerian law. No other type of marriage is needed after the traditional marriage
At traditional marriages they issue certificate? Do you even know what traditional marriage means? It is what most people refer to as "engagement". So after that, without going to court the law recognises them as couple?

Traditional marriage is complete because marriage only means when a man and woman agree to marry each other and the two families accepted, but it is not binding under the law that is why a court/white marriage is needed and also for the spiritual aspect of it, depending on your faith/religious belief.

Lets watch Aregbesola closely, and see if he'll snap his ballot paper, copy the serial number or wait till the votes are counted at his polling unit.
