Daniel Ohikhena scholarship

August 29, 2013 – Arik Air Tyre Boy, Daniel Ohikhena Gets Scholarship To University Level – De Raufs To Sponsor His Education

Daniel Ohikhena, a 15-year-old boy who flew Arik Air on tyre from Benin to Lagos last Saturday has been greatly rewarded.

Apart from the controversy his story generated, a volunteer group named De Raufs has vowed to sponsor Daniel’s education until his dream becomes a reality.

The DG of De Raufs group, Comrade Amitolu Shittu in an official statement said they will sponsor Daniel’s study until he finished his University education so he can fulfill his dream of traveling by air the right way.

Comrade Shittu said Daniel Ohikhena‘s ambition must be well nurtured through the right education channel.

De Raufs is a volunteer group of wealthy Nigerians extolling the virtues of Osun State Governor Rauf Aregbesola.

OMG this boy has suddenly become a star.

If he can focus on his education, his dream of traveling abroad will be realised within a short period of time.

Congrats to Daniel.

    Congratulations to the boy Daniel(The James Bon of our time). Thank God for your life. On Monday 26/08/13, in my comment on PM News, I said Edo State government and possibly Federal govt should give this special boy scholarship to any level of education.
    Thanks to DE RAUFS for this kind gesture. I pray it will not be mere promises. I see Daniel as a great person tomorrow. I can’t imagine what or who inspired him to em backed on this risky adventure.
    We are not doing enough in terms of security at all. What if this boy was a suicide boomer, what would have happened to the passengers on board? It would have been another calamity for the entire country.

    Yea sometimes you have to scarifies and reach to your goal.
    And the little Daniel seems to achieving that !

    It pays to break law in Nigeria. If Daniel were law abiding, he wouldn’t have gotten the offer. So congrats, Daniel for being a terror that would have caused Arik air security problem. All the good boys/girls in Nigeria, to survive or be recognised for help break the law and you’ll see the magic like Daniel.


    Our law abiding citizens hardly finds soccour to survive. Lordhave mercy. Amen.

    this is to prove to the nigerian govt that they dont have any security at all. they govt has failed us and we are heading to doom. that is why the insurgent group can work into any strategic place to plant bomb. it means that someone can as well send this little boy to go and plant boomb in that plan and all we could do is to give sum scrab form of scholarship to the boy. dont the govt know that it is their duty to provide for the boy in the first place. JUST BIZY STEALING OUR MONEY

    August 29, 2013 at 7:53 PM

    The attitude of that boy is an attitude of a terrorist and some ignorant Nigerians are here supporting him! assuming he was with bomb, by now some of the passengers relatives would have been trown into a pool of tears by now, rubbish!

    U pple have gone the same way but died (if u read the first article on daniel) when he was asked is he ever heard of it he said no. some people that are thinking Its gud to break the law are very wrong because wot pays off for A may bring regret to B. What happenned to Daniel may just be God’s favour for him

    Its unfortunate dat our leaders seems no focus dat dey no longer differenciate between right and wrong, this is a practical example of encouraging time, but time shall tell when bomb will be plant in there private planes and jets. Gud luck to terrorist.

    August 30, 2013 at 9:33 AM

    Its unfortunate dat our leaders seems to have no focus, as dey no longer differenciate between right and wrong. This is a practical example of encouraging crime in our society, but dey will only understand when bomb is being plant in their private planes and jets.

    Its unfortunate that our leaders dont seems to differenciate between right and wrong. This is a practical example of promoting crime in our society, instent of helping less privilage children but rather encouraging terrorist.
