In January, Mavin artiste Korede Bello was accused staying away from school without permission by his lecturers at the Nigerian Institute of Journalism (NIJ) in Ogba, Lagos after they threatened to resign if the singer took semester exams. The 18-year-old singer, however, later apologised during a meeting with the school’s management. Now there are reports that the student who exposed Korede’s truancy has been failed by the institute for incriminating the Mavin singer.

According to BlackBox Nigeria, an entertainment blog, the student,  identified as Damilare Famuyiwa, was reportedly failed by the school’s management for exposing Korede Bello’s absence from school and possible missing out of the recently held examinations of the institute in accordance with the school’s 70% class attendance rule. It was alleged that Damilare was marked down and handed carry-overs in two courses while he also got low marks in others.

Damilare was also allegedly threatened earlier by the management to face a hard time in passing out of the school. His classmates claim that the allege results of the alleged victimised student came as a shock as he was one of the most brilliant in his class. They pointed out that Korede who rarely attended lectures or participated in the Continous Assessment, passed all his courses in flying colours, presumably as a result of manipulation of the system.

Damilare’s story has caused ‘Nigerian Young Journalists Forum‘ and ‘Journalists For Christ, JFC’ to fight the matter while he calls for his scripts and challenge the results as allowed by regulations guiding the school.
