Report Of Alleged Illegality At Police Training School Lagos

An investigation by SR has allegedly uncovered extensive illicit programs and financial deals at the Police Training School (PTS) in Ikeja, Lagos. Overseen by Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Kayode Egbetokun, the commandant of the PTS. The training school engages in improperly documented activities that bring a financial windfall to a few officers. 

Mandated to train civilians as complementary law enforcement officers in Nigeria, the PTS runs two major programs, the recruit course and the refresher course. The recruit course is an entry training level training while the refresher course is the promotional training for graduates who had gone through the recruit course and want to attain the rank of an Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP). Civilians who complete the training are tagged Supernumerary Police Officers (SPY), and they are often employed by private individuals or organizations as security guards or drivers.
In 2015, Mr. Egbetokun, became the school’s commandant. Our investigation showed that, since assuming command of the school, Mr. Egbetokun had instituted and completed eight batches of recruit courses and three batches of refresher course without approval from the police headquarters in Abuja. Consequently, at least four hundred and forty trainees had graduated from the refresher course without receiving decoration. This is because the trainees’ batches were never approved hence their names were not sent to the headquarters for authorization to decorate them.

Here's How To Take Care Of Unhappiness In Marriage

We are in the generation that sees marriage as going on vacation, taking ice cream and hanging out. A lifetime commitment is not something you just go into with 'enjoyment' mindset without first laying the foundation to sustain that enjoyment in the days, weeks, months and years ahead.

What you build is what will stand, not what you are just wishing for.

Written by Mrs. Elizabeth Badejo
I was with a group of young bachelors recently and we were having a very interesting conversation on relationship and marriage today. While I was advocating the importance of the institution and all the fulfilments within, a good number of them were not very excited to listen to my support for this traditional institution.

Some took me on a spin on their experiences as children caught between the frails of broken homes as a result of their parents’ marital inadequacies...

If your man wants s*x everyday, give him that’s his appetite – Tolu Odukoya

*Young people are not staying in marriages anymore
Tolu Odukoya-Ijogun is the daughter of celebrated Bimbo Odukoya of blessed memory. In this chat with Ifeoma Ononye, Tolu who recently got ordained as a pastor, talks about her passion for God, her music, relationships, marriages, and family.

Why the interest in relationships?
I got a backlash on Facebook recently where people were saying I’m not my mother, so why do I feel I can talk about relationships? And it’s almost inevitable. I grew up in a family where my parents were very much into relationships. My father would always counsel married couples. So would my mum. And you saw her on TV with her show, Single and Married. So I have lived in that environment where people are talking about broken marriages, what we should not do or what we should do. How a wife should behave, how a husband should behave and then, I didn’t get it.

Now that I’m married, it finally makes sense.
