Woman Sues Faith Academy Over Child's Death by RiffRaff: 12:51pm On Oct 22, 2009
Yesterday, at the Federal High Court in Abeokuta, neither the Faith Academy in Otta, Ogun State and the 16 other defendants, nor their counsels showed up to defend themselves on charges of complicity in the death of 11-year-old Morenike Arulogun, who died of cerebral malaria in 2008.

The sitting Judge, B. I. Molokwu, was surprised that no member of the defence party was present for the hearing of the preliminary objection they had submitted to the court in late September, 2009. She adjourned the case to allow for another notice of hearing to be served the defendants. "We will give them time to appear.

The defendants will be served with fresh notices. I am doing this because I don't want anyone to accuse me of not giving them fair hearing. The case is adjourned to Friday, October 30, 2009," the judge said.

The counsel to the plaintiff, Oluyinka Oyeniji of Banwo, Adeyemo and Igbokwe Chambers was also surprised that Faith Academy and its lawyers would feel no obligation to show up in a case involving the demise of an ex-student of Faith Academy. "It is surprising that a counsel can choose to come or not at will. And this to me shows the levity they [Faith Academy] have been taking the death of Morenike, whose death was occasioned by their poor health management.

Let's hope they'll treat the court with more respect," he said. Mr. Oyeniji said he was further surprised because last week on October 7, 2009, he had submitted to the Federal High Court his chamber's counter-affidavit to the preliminary objections of the defendants, which he said was acknowledged by the defendants counsel.

When NEXT contacted Ogochukwu Mbamalu of Jumbo Chambers, the counsel to Faith Academy and eight other defendants mentioned in the law suit No. FHC/AB/CS/58/09, he said he was never notified when the case was coming up. "Yes, they served us their counter-affidavit on the 7th but we were not given any hearing notice. The Federal High Court should have given us notice but they did not. We've just been informed of the new date and we will be there," Mr. Mbamalu said. For Toye and Idorenyin Arulogun, who were both present at the court, their cause is a justified one, which they say they have thought over ever since their daughter Morenike passed away on November 21, 2008. "It is a very traumatic experience we are going through.

Morenike loved to sing but now there is no more music in our family. We don't wish anyone goes through what we are facing and that is why we are creating awareness on the Movement Against Negligence In Boarding Schools (MANIBS)," Mrs. Arulogun said. "(The movement's) aim is to get schools and regulatory bodies like the Ministries of Education and Health to establish the procedures schools should follow in the management of students in their trust.

Many people have suffered this kind of negligence and it is time we spoke out against this," Mrs. Arulogun added.

@ Poster, Pls get your facts well.

Faith Academy is owned by Faith xtain centre aka Winner's Chapel. Who also owns Covenant University.

Thus, your post smells of BEEF against Daystar.
Re: Woman Sues Faith Academy Over Child's Death by AKO1(m): 2:13pm On Oct 22, 2009
Why should it even matter who owns it?

Now I get the motivation behind these types of threads.

No wonder, Winner's chapel has no time for anything that would not bring money or cheap positive publicity to their conglomerate or their CEO bishop.

@poster, promptly carry out your research properly before posting. "Daystar" was the only reason i clicked on this thread.

@ post
This is indeed a sad story, but this should not in anyway occasion unnecessary insult to the church/bishop that owns the school, the entities directly culpable are the medical personnel/clinic of the school, and the school management are VICARIOUSLY liable. that is why the case is THE STATE Vs Day star Academy and not VS the registered trustees of the church This has nothing to do with Bishop Oyedepo as the school is a separate entity with an administrator. I


In BTW
So many posts- but what is the intelligence level exhibited by the average user? shocked

Your are right. Lets wait to hear the other side of the story before casting stones, afterall it could have happened anywhere. Churches running school is not limited to Nigerian alone, it is all over EU and the America. Why the ranting.

Sad story. RIP Morenike

realy - what happened to the girl- what happened. this story is about the court case, will someone tell us what realy happened prior to this court case?
Re: Woman Sues Faith Academy Over Child's Death by mygladness: 3:58pm On Oct 22, 2009
What has Daystar got to do with this post? Did the poster mention Daystar in the story because I cannot find any trace to the church.
Was it mentioned in the body of the story or what?

By the way, Faith Academy should be more reasonable and compassionate in the manner they are handle this little girl's death. Life is involved here.

Re: Woman Sues Faith Academy Over Child's Death by drlawng(m): 4:23pm On Oct 22, 2009
The so-called church-promoting, pastor-defending Christians in the bid to defend their "men of god" are exhibiting Un-Christlike behaviors through their insulting comments.  You really wonder who is the ultimate is in their lives, the Christ the profess to believe in, or their "men of god"?

@switch47, I can see you are really an intellectual, as your BTW comments pre-supposes that everyone else on the  forum is an idiot. Word of advice, that you don't agree with other peoples perspectives doesn't make you smarter than they are.

R.I.P Morenike.
