Principal who conducted virginity tests on students ordered to be given a psychiatric examination
| January 23, 2013
The principal of Ajuwon Senior High School in Ogun State who allegedly conducted virginity tests on some students of the school, is to be given a psychiatric examination to determine her mental state. In December of last year, the school principal is alleged to have ordered virginity tests on a group of students in the school without the consent of their parents. The nurses who performed the tests are alleged to have put their fingers into the students' private parts to perform the test and when one of the students started bleeding after the test was done on her. When the news of the test got out, angry parents rushed to the school to demand explanations and police had to be called to calm the situation. The Ogun state government raised a three-man panel raised to investigate and the panel recommended the psychiatric examination and said that the Principal should be terminated if she is found to be mentally unstable. The panel also recommended that if she is found to be stable, she should be demoted from Grade Level 16 to Grade Level 15 and recalled to the Teaching Service Commission headquarters. The Ogun State Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, spoke about the government's decision after consideration of the recommendations of the review panel. The commisioner said, “The Ogun State Government, after considering an appraisal report submitted by a three-man panel, headed by Mr. Ambaliu Ishola, Permanent Secretary of the ministry has directed that Aladeojobi undergoes a psychiatric test to determine her mental state. “The government accepted the recommendation that Aladeojobi should be relieved of her appointment, if found to be of unsound mind while she should be demoted from grade level 16 to grade level 15 and recalled back to the Teaching Service Commission (TESCOM) headquarters if found to be sane.” "The two school nurses who joined the principal in conducting the test have been immediately redeployed from the school and will be referred to the state ministry of health for necessary disciplinary action." "The state government has also approved the immediate redeployment of all teachers including guidance counsellors who have spent up to five years in the school and the affected students will also be referred to the state General Hospital for proper medical check-up and counseling." “The Chairman, TESCOM, and I have been asked to meet members of the Parent-Teacher Association, staff and students of the school to douse the tension generated by the virginity test incident. With these decisions, we have finally laid to rest the issue of virginity test in Ajuwon High School.” Related: - School principal in Ogun state suspended for allegedly performing virginity tests on students

The principal is sure to get away with what she has done because the rule of law is none existent in this country. Crime for which the appropriate punishment is stipulated in the laws of the land (Constitution) is committed with impunity and the law enforcement agents looks the other way

"if" this, or "if" that, I don't care. The only "if" I would entertain is if she conducted the virginity tests or not.

Mentally stable or not, sound mind or not, this Principal is a sexual offender. And who is talking about demotion - the Principal must be summarily dismissed and also sent to jail for at least 6 months.

This is a manifestation of the lack of rule of law in our nation. For example, when an employee steals from his or her employer, the most you can do in our country is fire or sack the employee. We usually don't prosecute and send the thief to jail. And people don't usually call the police to arrest the culprit. That's no law enforcement. And the thief would simply go somewhere else to do his/her stealing again when he/she should be in jail paying for his/her crime.

I have seen shoplifters arrested here in America a couple of times before and you'll start to wonder how seriously the law takes it. And it goes into your record for life. I am not saying that it is perfect here, but you see that something is seriously being done about it.

If we can't or don't originate anything, at least we should be able to copy it. We see or hear about how law enforcement is done, why can't we just copy it?. We copied the American system of government, why can't we do things the way they do, even it's not a perfect system?

Law enforcement is our foundational problem and we need to do something about it. There is crime in every human being but what keeps us in order most of the time is effective law enforcement. Our leaders are stealing us blind because law enforcement is lacking. And crimes by citizens are not being curbed because of it too.

No society flourishes without adequate law enforcemnt. Human beings are animals and we will do horrible things if there is no adequate law enforcement.

Nigeria was not like this when I was growing up. Our country has seriously decayed since the white man left and it is a shame.

And I will keep on saying what I need to say. I have been in "oyinbo" man's land for too many years and I do appreciate how they do things "as human beings." And what they do is no brain surgery or rocket science. It's simply controlling human behavior as best as they possibly can.

Can we just try?
