Kullima, who spoke after the opening ceremony of the 14th quarterly meeting of Universal Basic Education (UBEC) in Abuja, however informed that he could not attest to the number of children who were lost or have been missing since the insurgency took effect since most of the areas are still occupied by Boko Haram and cannot be accessed.

He said: “Boko Haram insurgency has afflicted the basic education delivery in Borno State.

“The terrorists have destroyed not fewer then 512 schools, when you translate this to classrooms, it is over 1000 classrooms. In addition, they also killed 350 teachers. The number of children are yet to be accounted for because most of the areas that are still under the occupation of Boko Haram are not safe for us to go into and take a head count. It is quite impossible.

“In most of the peaceful areas, particularly Maidugri, Jere, Shani, Hawul, Bayo, Kwayo Kusar, schooling is going on there. Within Maiduguri and IDP camps, schools are functioning. The state government is aggressively pursuing the construction of schools. We are yet to get support from anywhere else. We are worse than conquered territory, so because of that only the state government is shouldering all the responsibilities.

“As for books, we’ve got all the books that are being distributed but then the vandals are destroying the schools along with instructional materials. The few areas that are functioning have text books, although most of them are at variance with the curriculum that is being practised.”

This news is coming about 24 hours after the Nigerian president was reported to have made a u-turn on his December deadline for crushing the insurgents, stating that it was just a time frame which could be modified.

Brazilian footballer Neymar faces fresh police questioning over claim he raped a model in Paris hotel room

Published

on

Brazilian footballer, Neymar, 26, will be questioned for the second time over claims he raped a model in a Paris Hotel room.

The Paris Saint-Germain star has reportedly agreed to fly into São Paulo in Brazil to meet with detectives over the alleged rape attack on 26-year-old model, Najila Trindade Mendes de Souza. 

Speaking to MailOnline, Dr. Juliana Lopes Bussacos, the officer in charge of the investigation, said: ‘He will be treated like any other citizen. He has the same rights as any other man.

‘I have interviewed many men in these situations and everyone is equal and they all have the right to tell their story and produce evidence to back it up.’

With detectives desperate to get to the bottom of what happened,  Dr. Juliana said she couldn’t enter into details of the rape accuser’s complaint due to confidentiality.

‘There are so many questions and answers that need clarification. He says he did not rape her and she has said she has evidence.

The former Barcelona striker is expected to give his statement in the next 48 hours, and then officers will decide if there is a case and if it is necessary to bring them together.

This comes after it was revealed that Neymar could be cleared of the rape accusation levied against him within days over lack of more evidence from his accuser.

The Brazilian model has been informed by her lawyer that she faces seeing her case against the Paris Saint-Germain star dropped except there is more evidence. She also faces losing the second lawyer to represent her after he said he could not carry on if his professional ‘trust’ in her was compromised.

Trindade’s attorney Danileo Garcia de Andrade said he still believed Ms. Trindade had a case, but he would step aside if there was a lack of evidence.

Mr. Daileo said he had given her a deadline to produce the video and photographs she claimed to have had which would help prove her allegations of rape against the Brazilian superstar. But if the evidence was not forthcoming, he said, he would drop the case next week.

Mr de Andrade told Brazil’s UOL Esporte: ‘If the police investigation of the supposed break-in where she lives shows there was no break-in, I am leaving the case.’

He added: ‘The attorney-client relationship is based always on trust. If there is no trust, then there is no reason to stay on’

Trindade claimed she was the victim of ‘aggression and rape’ by the Paris Saint-Germain player in a hotel room in the French capital on May 15. She said the encounter started out consensual but quickly turned violent, leaving her with bruises and scrapes to her legs and buttocks, with Neymar refusing to stop.

She told police her tablet containing a seven-minute video, messages and photos she alleged incriminated the footballer, was stolen in a burglary at her apartment. But the authorities said they found no major signs of a break-in and only Ms. Trindade’s fingerprints and those of her maid and friends around the flat.

Neymar has strongly denied raping her but admitted that what happened between them was consensual.
