Verse 1
Neath the broad expanse of Nigeria's sky,
Stands a school with a vision's bright,
Ever holding the banner of knowledge high,
We'll go forward by wisdom's might.

All hail to thee Alma mater,
We have come from near and far,
To unite in Calabar,
We'll work to build our Alma mater,
University of Calabar.

Verse 2
May our quest for knowledge in every field,
Have its purpose to serve mankind,
With the fervent hope that our effort yield,
Fruit for all who will come behind.

Verse 3
Mighty God from whom all knowledge come
Let the wisdom in us o'verflow,
May the knowledge gained in our campus here,
Guide our steps as we onward go......

Operatives of the Lagos State Neighbourhood Security Corp (LNSC) have arrested six suspects for their alleged membership of a notorious cultist gang and raping of underaged students.

The suspects, who were apprehended at Agarawu, Lagos Island, were accused of gang raping three students of Junior Secondary School, aged 15 , 13 and 13 years identified as Maryam, Sulia and Alimot.

The suspects Laguda Kamal, 20 years, Muyideen Aigoro, Kayode Damilare, 20 years, Quadri Ajayi, 27 years,  Idoogun Yinusa and Yinka Adewuyi, were alleged to have initially initiated the victims into their cult gang known as “Eiye” before raping them one after the other.

They were said to have perpetrated the sinister act at the residence of their gang leader identified simply as Wakili now at large.

Chairman of the LNSC Deputy Inspector General of Police, Israel Ajao (RTD), while parading the suspects Thursday, disclosed that they usually visit the schools of their would be victim with dangerous weapon, threaten  and force them to their hide out where they forcefully gang tape them.

He said one of the victims was held for four days. One of the victims  Maryam, accused Damilare and Wakili of gang raping her and Sulia after forcing them under gun point to their hideout.

”Dare came to me in the school with gun that I should follow him to Agarawu that they are going to initiate me or else he will kill me. When we got there, they formed a circle and asked me to kneel down in their mist.

They tie my face,sprinkle some things on my body, asked me to undress and raped me countless time for four days," she recounted. In a chat with journalists, two of the suspects Kamal and Quadri confirmed having fun with the victims, but denied gang raping them.

One of the suspects, Damilare, said he witnessed one of the incidents when Wakili and Yinka raped Maryam, but denied his involvement.

6 cultists arrested for gang-raping and initiating teenage students

The visit of Yobe State Governor, Ibrahim Gaidam, to Dapchi was cut short as angry residents of the town pelted his convoy with stones, Punchng reports. .

Boko Haram members had stormed Government Girls Technical College in Dapchi on Monday, but the schoolgirls were said to have fled into the bushes in the area.  While some of the girls had been returning to the school, 46 were said to be missing. .

The crowd, still at a loss over the whereabouts of the missing schoolgirls, showed their disgust to the governor on Thursday, by throwing stones at his convoy, injuring some of his aides, as well as government officials. .

The  state  government  had  issued  a  late night statement on Wednesday, announcing that some of the schoolgirls were rescued. The government in another statement on Thursday, however, said its initial statement was false. .

The FG says the number of missing pupils has become a mystery due to the nature of the incident. The Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said this when he visited Dapchi, Yobe State.

He said when the terrorists were approaching the school, the principal asked the pupils to run to safety, adding that most of the pupils returned to school the following day, but when a roll-call was conducted, it was discovered that same were yet to return. .

He  said  it  was  difficult  to  determine  who was missing because the incident happened at night.  Mohammed said, “Since the incident happened, the army and other security agencies have swung into action and have been combing every nook and cranny.

So far, we cannot say the number of people that are missing because people are still reporting or calling that they are safe.  We will need a few more days so we can give an exact figure of those missing."
