Community protest alleged fraud at Imo nursing school

www.odogwublog.com reports that indigenes of Umulogho in Obowo Local Government Area of Imo State are presently calling on the appropriate authorities to intervene in what the community described as an alleged fraud on students of Mother of Mercy Nursing School perpetrated by their principal, Reverend Sister Ifeayin Nwachukwu.

Our correspondent who covered a recent protest by youths of the community at the premises of the school on Monday reports that the youth on a peaceful protest had gone to seek clarifications on the alleged fraud by the principal of the school but met a strict restriction by the principal who labeled them as kidnappers, including the journalists that covered the protest.

The Reverend sister who refused to come out to address the youths later invited the police and ordered her security personnel at the gate to lock up the gate pending the arrival of the police. Both the journalists and the police were held hostage by the principal for over 2 hours before the arrival of the police.

However, the chaplain of the school, Reverend father, John Eyinaya who addressed journalists on behalf of the principal after apologizing on the conduct of the principal noted that the purported fraud is only being carried out by non staff of the school.

He admitted that the unnamed personnel’s charge innocent incoming students between N100 000 and N150 000 to be admitted into the school.

Before the protest, their were allegations that the principal of the school after charging N250 000 from some final year students who failed the Nursing council exam despite being successful in their Hospital exams eventually fail them and rusticate them from the school.

Also, the principal is being accused of admitting more than the carrying capacity recommended by the Nigeria School of Nursing Council.
