  • The Optimist

    They know the rules of Great Ife; ‘road one’ for anyone who fights on campus.

  • 45Degree

    I don’t know what is “Great” in a college girl breaking bottle to do harm to a man. You just have to shake head at the level of decadence with all these glorified high schools.

  • Ekwu

    I think the school needs to revise this decision asap. A woman was held against her will, she fought back and got battered. Yet she is being purnished??

    Only in Nigeria!

    The victim should not be purnished same as the attacker. Also the president who stood by and watched a lady being battered should be penalized. All involved in the battering of a female student should be penalized.

  • Gary

    Serves them right. They are a disgrace and huge embarrassment to the character and spirit of “Great Ife”. That school is no haven for thugs of any gender:

    As said by Optimist below, the rule at Great Ife was “road one” (expulsion) for fighting; the issue of who is at fault is not a factor. In the 80s, a boy challenged me to a fight. I thought to myself that this fellow may be “an occasional student” (those who were no longer student but still remain on campus), so I told him I will not fight him. He who is down fears no fall. For me, I did not want to violate that law against fighting because I did not want to be expelled.
    Years later, we hear about students attacking lecturers and getting away with. If this case had not been reported in the national media, may be we will not hear anything from the school.
