This newspaper gathered that the parents of six students earlier protested the alleged inhuman treatment of their wards in the university and called for their release. “Let them be allowed to go home, but they should sign an undertaking to be of good behaviour,” Mr Oboh insisted. “I thank God that the judge has finally granted them bail. But I am not really happy about the intimidation of our children by the management of Madonna University.

Get ur facts right, they ain't free at this moment.

They should pay heavily for the illegal arrest and detention.

Nigeria 🇳🇬... Everywhere you look oppression, PoliceNG joinning in harassing the citizens instead of protecting them. Nigeria which way forward.

The parents are still only threatening to withdraw their children?

Not yet Uhuru! The men behind their travails must lose their freedom too. From the devil in cloaks, to the police officers involved down to everyone else involved in this wicked conspiracy to deny 7 people of their freedom must be held accountable. Religious hypocrisy !

See it, say it, it pays👏👏💪💪🙌🙌

Nigeria is News on its own...

I hope the court also awarded a compensation and all of their previous entitlements

No disrespect but but Rev Ede is foolish Tyrant. Thank God i did not school in Madonna, the school has groomed more spoilt youths over Excesses on ' so called morality'.

Madonna university management action against these students is sacrilegious and condemnable .This is height of arrogance and impunity from supposedly holy man. Parents and guardians should as a matter of urgency withdraw their children and ward from this glorified high school.

Thank God

The power of social media 💪💪💪

The power of social media...

They should seek redress in the court of law and be adequately compensated, - and apology issued by Madonna University...
