A school owner in Ibadan, Mr Sunday Adeyemi has allegedly absconded with funds meant for students’ exam fees, leaving their educational prospects in limbo.

Adeyemi’s absconding was brought to light by Adejoke Lasisi, founder of Planet 3R, who shared the story on Facebook. According to Lasisi’s post, many parents had gone to great lengths, even taking loans, to ensure their children could take crucial exams like West African Examinations Council (WAEC) and National Examination Council (NECO).

However, their hopes were dashed when they discovered that the school had not registered their children for the exams despite collecting the fees.

Lasisi’s post was fueled by both outrage and personal experience, as her younger brother had previously fallen victim to a similar incident.

Fortunately, her family managed to rally support and funds to re-register him for the exams. The School Owner’s actions were condemned as a betrayal of trust, especially given his long-standing reputation operating “The Lord’s Favour” school for over two decades.

It was revealed that Adeyemi had allegedly sold off his properties, including his home and the school, to finance his escape abroad, leaving the students and parents in a state of shock and hardship.

Lasisi observed that while everyone has the right to pursue opportunities abroad, it should not come at the expense of others, especially when it involves breaching trust and jeopardizing the futures of innocent students.
