BREAKING: Presidential amnesty student leader, Patrick Padiayefa, kidnapped
Ovie Patrick Padiayefa, the Presidential Amnesty student leader who coordinated the Gbaramatu amnesty students’ wing during recently held protest at the Novena University, Ogume, Delta state, has been reportedly kidnapped by yet to be identified gunmen.
The 25-years-old student from Oporoza, Gbaramatu kingdom was kidnapped on Tuesday, September 27, 2022, at around 10a.m along Udu expressway, Udu local Government Area of Delta state.
While information about the reason for his kidnap remains sketchy, GbaramatuVoice gathered that it may not be unconnected with the recent protest by students of Presidential Amnesty programme undergoing different programmes at the Novena University over what the school management described as fake admission.
It would be recalled that Patrick had during the students’ protest on Friday, August 26, 2022 at the school premises lamented that the issue of the alleged fake admission had been a lingering issue which involved thousands of students and 425 students from the Gbaramatu Kingdom.
According to him, some students paid N150,000, N250,000 and even N900,000 to an Ex-militant (name withheld) just to get admission into the university through the programme and also the management of the school has not been transparent with the students.
According to him: “Since we have been in this university, there has been a lot of trouble and as time unveiled, the promises which we were told about if we were under the university are all fallacies. They have shown us that they are lying. They gave us original school fees receipts, in the hundred level first semester but in the 200 level first semester, they retrieved the original school fees receipts and gave us fake school receipts.”
