Japa: School Owner Absconds Abroad With Students’ WAEC, NECO Fee


An unidentified school owner in Ibadan has absonded with several thousand of naira belonging to final year secondary school students.

It was gathered that school owner left the country after receiving West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) and National Examination Council (NECO) examination fee from his students.

Speaking about the incident, the founder of Planet 3R, Adejoke Lasisi, expressed her dismay on Facebook, revealing that some parents had borrowed money to pay the fees, only to find out that their children were not registered for the exams.

Adejoke added that the school owner sold his house and all his belongings to fund his relocation, leaving the students’ lives in ruins.

She wrote on Facebook;  “Some people don’t fear God at all oooooo Imagine collecting WAEC/NECO money from all of your students and used it to JAPA. An incident happened in my area recently…there’s this man that own a school…the school has been in existence for a while now at Amuro, Egbeda LG Ibadan. The owner collected money for WAEC and NECO, some parents even went to borrow it only to find out he didn’t register the students for exam.

I heard he sold his house, school and all properties in order to travel abroad. He just ruined those students life for his selfish gain, some might not be able to pay for another exam next year.

Imagine, having an extra year before getting admitted into higher institution gangan. This reminds me of what happened to my younger brother many years ago…thank God he’s now a licensed physiotherapist.

Things weren’t okay financially back then, so we could not pay for his exam as the school was asking to make payment of 3rd term school fees with the examination money. We sha managed to raise money later…I think it was N16,000 and paid someone who said he would help him register. We filled form and everything ooooo.

He started attending lessons and studying as well. I was already a medical student at OAU back then. Only for exam time to come and we knew he didn’t register my brother…it was so painful that we cried.

We heard he collected from different people ooooooo We sha looked for another money to get GCE form for him. Adewale so ranti igbayen ni Ife? We thank God for the journey and the lessons learnt so far.

I just pray there’s a way to catch that e.v.i.l man who used people’s hard earned money to travel with his family. Werey man yen gba N95,000 each lowo awon omo olomo. Guess the name of his school ooooo….”The Lord’s Favour”. He has been running the school for over 20years now. He started with just primary before he added secondary to it.

Imagine building something for that long only to be brainwashed into using people’s sweat to JAPA No one is saying people should not JAPA but do it with your money and property OR get a loan if you have to. Bottomline, Olorun ma je ki a pade alagbako 🙏.”

When asked for the name of the school and the school owner, Adejoke promised to provide them, confirming that it happened at a school near her residence.

She told Legit.ng: “Yes, it’s in my area here in Ibadan. Not far from my workplace. It’s a trekking distance. They even took the matter to Agidigbo.”
