Afbeeldingsresultaat voor jigawa state picture
 Jigawa State College of Legal Studies, Ringim Ismail, has allegedly confessed to slitting the throat of a woman for refusing to terminate a pregnancy she had for him out of wedlock.
Police accused Mr. Ismail of the murder of Salamatu Garba, 22, of Kofar Gabas quarters in Jahun LGA of Jigawa State on Saturday.
Speaking on Tuesday , the 22-year-old suspect said he was in a relationship with the 22-year-old for over eight years with a view to consummating the relationship into marriage.
According to him, they made an unsuccessful attempt to abort the pregnancy when it was three-month- old, adding that the deceased however refused his pressure to attempt the abortion again two months later.
He said he therefore decided to eliminate Ms Garba and anything that had to do with her and the pregnancy.
The suspect said on the fateful day of the murder, he took the woman on a motorcycle to the outskirts of the town, used a jack knife to slit her throat and left her in a pool of her blood after she had collapsed.
“I took her to the outskirt of the town at around 9 p.m. on a motorcycle that I borrowed from a friend. I snuffed life out her after I slit her throat with a jack knife. She was four months pregnant for me and I decided to kill her for refusing to agree to an abortion.”
The suspect exonerated his friends whom he earlier mentioned as colluding in the killing. He said, “I killed her alone, none of my friends followed me.”
Police spokesperson in Jigawa State, Abdu Jinjiri, said the suspect will be charged to court to face the wrath of the law.

The vice chancellor of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) Professor Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, has disclosed that in order to boost the nation’s refinery capacity, the institution would soon set up conventional and standard locally-built refineries, Ogundipe made the disclosure at the 1st Annual General Meeting and 2nd Alumni Lecture of the UNILAG Faculty of Engineering Alumni Association. The VC stated that the institution needs to be exposed to refining processes, as it produces Chemical Engineering graduates. He stated: “A committee has been set up to under-study the process from Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria. If you go to some of the universities in Texas, when their students graduate, because they have refineries in their universities, they do not need to do certain courses when it comes to professional courses. “Engineering has left that level of just setting down and stats computing. It is now about turning ideas to realities. It is about producing entrepreneurial skills and developing the skills in the life our students. “We need to develop our students. All of them have skills that are unique to them, and the skills can help them set up their own businesses in future. “Most of our students can develop application, while some are with different skills. As a vice chancellor, faculty by faculty, I am going to interact with students to encourage them to develop their skills; and we have already gotten the commitment of Central Bank of Nigeria, and Bank of Industry, for funds. The development was made public by Professor Ibrahim Mohammed-Dabo, the team leader, ABU refinery project, and an expert in chemical engineering. He said: “Our ultimate goal is to have a conventional and standard locally-built refinery that can be refining Nigerian crude. We are hoping if enough funding is made available to us to perfect what we have on ground; we shall be willing to build other ones that can be stationed in the Niger Delta.”

A heart-wrenching story of how a Nigerian mum almost lost her two kids. According to her, her children and other students of the school in Ajah, Lagos, were taken on an excursion. However, what was supposed to be an educational trip turned out to be an almost fatal experience for the 2-year-old girl and the 3-year-old boy, both kids. She revealed her plans to sue the school for negligence and attempted murder being that only her kids were locked up in the bus for hours, for no just reasons. She narrated: "In February, my son (3 yrs) and daughter (2 yrs), joined the rest of their schoolmates (CRANE SCHOOL, Ajah) for an excursion to OMU Resort, Bogije. Upon getting there, both my children were left behind in the parked vehicle on a hot day with the doors locked. The nanny took down the rest of the kids, leaving just mine. The driver closed the doors and everything, everyone went in. Sometime later, a staff of the resort was just passing by the parking lot when he saw my son call out weakly through the window. By some divine miracle, my boy was able to open it slightly enough and by some luck, someone just happened to pass by. He called out, "uncle" and the shocked man looked inside the vehicle to see my daughter passed out in the chair and my son barely conscious.Both kids was covered in sweat. My son's eyes were terrifyingly swollen and red."

Most students are officially admitted to universities and colleges in Nigeria after passing UTME examinations carried out by JAMB (Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board). Of course, it is also possible to get admission to a number of institutions without taking JAMB UTME exams, but most majorities of students in Nigeria take JAMB exams. What is the cut off mark for medicine and surgery in IMSU for all interested candidates? Is it different from requirements for other Imo State University faculties and disciplines? Keep on reading so that you can learn about major differences between cut off marks and IMSU departmental cut off points for medicine and surgery, which is really helpful for all potential candidates. Imo State University cut off mark Standard cut off mark for JAMB examinations that is officially required by IMSU is 180 points. However, this standard minimum grade is set for students who wish to study other courses apart from medicine. Cut off mark for medicine and surgery in IMSU While it could be enough to score 180+ points in JAMB or 50 percent (or higher) in post-UTME exams to get knowledge about the basic medical sciences disciplines here, it is necessary to earn the following cut off mark for rather competitive disciplines: Surgery – candidates should reach 240 grades or higher in JAMB; at least 85 percent in post-UTME Medicine – students are expected to score 240 points or more in JAMB; 85 percent or more in post-UTME These are the minimum score required from potential students who are willing to get into 100 levels of education. Keep in mind that every university is giving privilege to pupils with higher exam scores and excellent school grades. Direct entry and other details those applicants who score less than 240 points at JAMB exams but still desire to study medicine and surgery in IMSU should apply through direct entry possibility based on O’level exams, SSCE, GCE or similar examinations. Still the institution pays attention to each candidate’s school certificates, grades, and examination results before it makes its final choice. The faculty of medicine consists of 13 departments, including surgery and medicine along with physiology, microbiology, pediatrics, anatomy, gynecology, and others. The institution was accredited in 2002 (Preclinical accreditation) and 2006 (Clinical accreditation). Now you know IMSU cut off mark for medicine and surgery. We hope you have done your best in your exams.
