SHOCK AS WOMAN, DISPLACES HER DAUGHTER, MARRIES SON IN LAWA woman from Gokwe South left villagers shell shocked when she unashamedly seduced her son in law and married him ostensibly to end domestic fights between her daughter and son in law-turned hubby.

The incident occurred about two weeks ago when Emily Kasirori, 49, of Kautsiga Village under Chief Nemangwe allegedly seduced George Gamanya, 30, who was married to her daughter, Sarah Janhi, 25.

The couple, which has three children together, had been married for six years when Kasirori decided to move in as wife to her son-in-law.

A family member who refused to be named said Gamanya divorced his wife before paying bride price for his mother-in-law to become his wife.

“Kasirori has always been a person of questionable etiquette. Her daughter has always been fighting with her husband and she would chip in to restore sanity, here and there.

This continued for some time until she started seeing her son-in-law behind her daughter’s back. The two later moved in together last week,” said the relative.

Janhi, the source revealed, failed to stomach this development and dragged the two to a traditional court.

Chief Nemangwe confirmed the incident saying he received a report of the matter at his traditional court. He said he presided over the case.

Chief Nemangwe said people in his area are still to come to terms with what transpired.

“I can confirm that the matter was before my court and it happened about two weeks ago. What happened is uncalled for. It goes against our norms and beliefs and I’ve since ordered Gamanya to pay one beast and six goats for undermining tradition and his wife. I’ve also ordered Kasirori and her family to pay four beasts for taking her son-in-law as husband,” said Chief Nemangwe.

He said they have also ordered Gamanya to leave his matrimonial home and six of their eight beasts to his wife and three children.

Hundreds of supporters of the Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, on Friday trooped to the streets, protesting alleged plan by members of the state House of Assembly to impeach the governor.

The protesters, under the aegis of Positive Minds Club for Teachers, converged on Fajuyi Park in Ado Ekiti, the state capital, with placards bearing various inscriptions criticising the Assembly.

They proceeded from the popular Fajuyi Park to Ijigbo roundabout where they were addressed by two of their leaders.

Some of the placards read, “No to impeachment,” “We want peace in Ekiti,” “Return the N100m bribe to your leader,” “No going back on June 21 election result” and Tinubu stay away from Ekiti,” among others.

The group’s President, Mr. Ojo Patrick, and Treasurer, Mr. Bello Akande, vowed to mobilise the people of the state to move against any plan to remove the governor.

Patrick said, “It is a peaceful protest and the police are here to ensure that the protest is not hijacked. We are going to maintain peace throughout the protest.

“We just want to show to all Ekiti people that we stand by the result of the last governorship election and our mandate.

“If the members of the House of Assembly want us to come and dialogue with them, we are ready. We learnt that they went for a meeting in Lagos State with Tinubu and each of the lawmakers collected N50m while the Speaker got N100m to impeach the governor and to make sure that Ekiti State is made ungovernable for Fayose.”

Patrick, however, appealed to the lawmakers “in the interest of all Ekiti people to stay clear of any move to impeach the governor.”

The state House of Assembly had on Thursday at a press meeting denied collecting money to remove the governor.

The Majority Leader of the Assembly, Mr. Churchill Adedipe, said the meeting they held in Lagos was to discuss the forthcoming All Progressive Congress presidential primary.

  LASU EXTERNAL STUDENTS PROTEST SUBSTANDARD ACADEMIC PROGRAMME,OTHERSSome 200 external students of the Lagos State University (LASU) on Monday staged a protest at the entrance to the Lagos State Government House, Alausa, Ikeja.

Displaying placards with different inscriptions, the protesters chanted solidarity songs and complained of what they termed “substandard part-time programme’’ being run by the school authorities.

They condemned the non-release of their examination results and poor treatment by the school’s authorities among others.

Bolaji Azeez, Speaker of the Students Representative Council (SRC) of LASU, who led the protest, told reporters that the part-time students deserved the same quality of instruction and treatment given to the regular students.

He, however, said the way in which the external programme of the school was being run was not good enough.

Azeez alleged that the university authorities were not issuing identity cards to the external students while examinations were conducted irregularly contrary to the practice in normal academic programmes.

The speaker said that the external students did not know when they would end their academic programmes as the university authorities had not released their past examination results.

“We in the external programme of LASU are tired of the inferior academic programme and the way we are being treated by the school authorities.

“Since 2012, LASU has only conducted three examinations. This is at variance with the system anywhere in the world.

“Also, our institution has consistently exploited us by asking us to pay for identification cards that we have never been issued.

“Some students cannot even beat their chests and proclaim themselves as students of LASU because they are yet to be issued their admission letters. Worse still, many students have been waiting endlessly to get their results released.

“The lecturers who teach us are second-rated and we do not know what they want us to make out of the whole thing.

“With all these problems, the students were made to pay between N68,000 and N75,000 as school fees, much higher than what the regular students are paying. Is it a sin to be part-time students? `’

Azeez said that the students had written a letter to Gov. Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State since July to complain about the development, but the union has yet to receive any response.

He urged the governor to respond to all their complaints in order to save their academic career.

Mr Hakeem Animashaun, the Special Assistant to the governor on Education and Youth Development, who attended to the students, commended them for the peaceful way they conducted themselves.

He promised them that he would convey their message to the governor.
