Dec 2nd, 2014 – Nigerian Student Murdered By Armed Robbers In Accra Ghana, Nazifi Osman Muhammed Stabbed To Death During Robbery Attack At His House, 2 Brothers Injured

Last weekend was a bloody one for three Nigerian brothers studying in Accra Ghana.

According to police report, three male students of Sikkim Manipal University in Kwame Nkrumah Circle in Accra were attacked by some armed robbers who invaded their apartment around 3:30am this past Saturday.

Nazifi Osman and his brothers were dispossessed of their belongings and fatally stabbed with knives by the masked robbers.

While his brothers survived the attack, Nazifi didn’t because of the deep stab wound inflicted on his chest.

The trio were rushed to the hospital by their neighbour but Nazifi was declared dead at the hospital.

As at the time of this report, the brothers of the deceased Jamiru Osman and Mustapha Musa are receiving treatment at Korle Bu Teaching hospital located on Guggisberg Avenue in Accra.

The tragedy has been confirmed by Police DSP Elizabeth Dankwa who disclosed that one of the robbers has been arrested and taken to Kotobabi Police Division.

May his soul rest in peace.

Wishing his brothers quick recovery.

    This was a planned move, there is no way robbers can only target the three brothers from Nigeria how? its not true.

    Let investigations take place. I am not happy at all. Let us call a massive protest so that Ghanaian Police can curb the thugs and bring them to book.

        If their father can pay for three of his children in Ghana expensive university , then their father must be one of those destroying Nigeria in all capacities available to them , hoping to send their children outside when they put Nigerian in ruin . Their is no sentiment in saying a truth no matter the situation , we must ask their father why he can’t think of making Nigeria schools working instead of “exporting students to Ghana” . May the soul of the young man rest in peace , but to his parents NO CONDOLENCE.

    Nigerian parents intending to send their wards abroad for studies especially Ghana should ask a lot of questions as to what the standards of Universities their children attend and what kind of quality they intend achieving with their hard earned money spent in Ghana on their wards. There are lots of misleading informations about tertiary institutions in Ghana which parents back in Nigeria are hardly aware of. Undisputable fact is that, only three public Universities in Ghana are of the same standards as Unilag, University of Ibadan, University of Ife, Ahmadu Bello University, University of Nigeria Nsuka etc. These Ghanaian Universities are Univerdity of Ghana Accra, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology Kumasi and University of Cape Coast. Outside these three is another Asheshie University and only one accredited to issue its own certificate. The numerous other private Universities are housed in rented structures dotted variously in every syreet corner of towns and villages across the country and, are affiliated to some very obscure and unknown institutions in Europe and everywhere in Asia. The craze for foreign certificate by Nigerians is largely responsible for the blinded decisions to send children who mostly roam the the streets of Ghana jostling from one wooden University classrooms to another in search of foreign certificates which more or less has no value to earn a decent second degree programme from a reputable Institutions anywhere around the world. Nigerian students pay exobitant fees for average quality of education in Ghanaian private colleges that do not structuely qualify to a standard of a well established secondary school in Nigeria. Nigerian parents should endeavour to ask critical questions of Ghanaian colleges their wards attend or travel to Ghana themselves to verify personaly before taking that very important decision of sending their wards to Ghana for education. Nigerian students sleep and occupy all manner of unsafe accomodations that exposes them to robbery and influence of drug adicts and hoodlums. Many more Nigerian students are exposed to danger on daily basis because of uncontrolled influx and inability of the instirutions they attend to mornitor what they do after school hours. The Nigerian High Commission is doing its best but the problems have become difficult to control.

    I am a Nigerian and i cannot fathom why these poison hatred for Ghana which is so peaceful and kind. Look, we Nigerian students in Ghana are very satisfied about our stay in this Country because their system of education is robust and efficient. If the situation in Nigeria were better we wouldn’t have left. See, in Ghana 4yrs means 4yrs and not donkey years as in the case of Nigeria. Their educational system is in order that means you don’t have to worry about strikes and so on. In Ghana, all private universities are accredited by the National Accreditation Board which ensures that the universities deliver quality education. There are over 36 private universities here but interestingly none of them issues certificate on their own. In order words a private university must by Law be affiliated to public university/ies to offer degree programmes. And so it is the public university which supervises and awards certificate to graduands upon completion of the course. This simple fit is what is lacking in Nigeria. In essence all graduate have the benefit of holding certificate awarded by a public university in ghana. Education in Ghana is of high quality because they have a system that works. Private univeristies we attend are supervised by public universities and the National Accreditation Board. And they visit the universities every semester to conduct lecturer – student surveys.
    All these are verifiable facts you can check on the net to ascertain the truth.The purpose of my reply here is not to suggest that my Country Nigeria has a weak system but to point out the obvious which is vital for efficiency.
    Anyway, it has been announced that the brother of the deceased has confessed to staging the armed robbery that ended Nazif Osman’s Life. May Allah save Nigeria and Ghana.

      Musa Babangida, your case in particular is pathetic and regretable. I guess you are from the North where Boko Haram wrecks havoc on the daily basis therefore someone like you will defenately see Ghana as a haven of peace instead of your Northern Boko Haram infested territory. How many northern universities have you tried to gain admission into and failed before you decided to attend mushroom universities in Ghana, that are in your words affiliated to other Ghanaian public Universities.? What stops you from gaining admission to those Ghanaian public Universities as those of their counterparts in Nigeria that rejected your applications because your grades were inadequate. The large number of Nigerian students that choose to come to Ghana including the likes of Musa Babangida are those who failed to make the marks in Nigerian top Universities except very few who found admissions in Ghanaian public Universities with merits. The Ghanaian private Universities you and your colleague average Nigerian students attent in Ghana are a last resort for Ghanaian students themselves only when every efforts failed to gain admissions to either Univerdity of Ghana Legon, University of Cape Coast or KNUST Kumasi and, those are the Universities dotted in all manner of street corners in Ghana the likes of you Musa Babangida decieve your parents are good quality institutions. Ghanaians students don’t ever pride themselves belonging to those Universities you Babangida and colleague trumpet as being the best around. A top private University populated by about 90% Nigerians in the Eastern Region of Ghana for example is located next to motor garrage in the heart of town and operating from a rented structure. Someone like Musa Babangida should tell his parents he has come to Ghana to waste their hard earned resources on education which values is next to nothing. A group of Nigerian journalists came to Ghana on a fact finding in 2013 to compile a report on why Nigerian students suddenly found Ghana a destination for a solution to their educational needs and, what they found of Ghanaian private universities was revealing and shocking. They discovered the Ghanaian Private Universities have lowered the entry grades especially for the rejected Nigerian Students in order to take advantage of raking in money they otherwise would not have made from Ghanaians students and, that is what these rejected weak Nigerian students are rushing to Ghana to take advantage of. Upon discovering these anormaly in the system the accreditation board ordered the good numbers of these Universities to either retract the admission or loose their accreditation. These are the universities Musa Babangida all attend and inturn attemp to denigrade Nigerian system just because he wants to put unjustiviable value on Ghanaian private university certificate over that is earned in Nigeria.

      Musa Babangida could pls go and read a report by the Ghanaian Presidential staffer, Dr. Nii Moi Thompson, presidential staffer on special duties on the deteroriating state of Ghana education and how Universities chun out half baked graduants irrespective of whether its a public or private university. Musa Babangida you seem to have painted a flamboyant picture of Ghanaian University as though the best that has happened to you in life was to attend a univesity in Ghana. Go visit website “www.ghanaweb.com” scroll to news of 3/12/2014 and read a report by Dr. Nii Moi Thompson of the office of the Ghanaian presidency and how education in Ghana has seen a total slump. Those are the mushroom Universities Nigerian students fall over to pay dollars as fees and choose to condemn their own; meanwhile these Nigerian students in Ghana are those that the stiff entry requirements and regime in Nigeria rejected and now decide to glorify what seem not better than what they’ve left behind in Nigeria. Need someone tell Musa Babangida and his cohosts Nigerian Students in Ghana that Nigerians still remains the largest number of education visa entry into the USA, UK and Canada for students trained in Nigeria; in the entire African countries. Why is Musa Babangida not in any of these western countries if your dojourn in Ghanaian university is about quality and not your personal weakness as a student. Enough of your self deciet and better tell your parents the truth of the sub standard education you are acquiring in Ghana. At the end of the day your certificate will expose you in the job market.

    Most parents see Ghana was more safer because of cults in Nigeria universities. Many parents dont want their children to get involve with cultism Bezo. Why will an innocent child grew up to become cultist or join boko haram. Sad.

    I for one will never send my children to Nigeria universities because I went through hell during my time and will continue to pray for those who has no options. Cameroon is much more better these days than Ghana because of limited crime rate.

    the guy staged the crime himself and falsified the story as a robbery case. Ghana is very peaceful and most of the bad news about nigerian students in GH end up being perpertuated by their own fellow nigerians. My school for instance has a population of about 50% nigerians who are happy and have successfully completed their 4 years term and are back home whiles others seek resident here in GH So please stop defaming GH

    My dear friend Adebolokun, Thanks for your comments and the insult however the facts still remains the fact. you cannot suppress it forever. From the cursory view of your comments i can only pray that the Good Lord take away the hatred and bitterness in you to appreciate and tolerate an open fact when you see one. i will not reduce myself low to dance to your rhythm instead i will attack the issues and the not the person. Talking about the Nigerian Journalists who came to Ghana on the fact finding mission; what do you expect from their report. Are you suggesting that they will come back with the story that Ghanaian educational system is overperforming? i guess not because that will be tantamount to marketing Ghana as an educational paradise. As a matter of fact the pass grade into a university in Ghana is Aggregate 6 to 24 and nothing more. And because Ghana has 6 public universities only the competition is always tough and by the time they select up to say aggregate 17 they would have hit their threshold for admission for the academic year. And so it stands to reason that the surplus and some admitted students who are not pleased with their choice of programme look else where or wait for next year. Again the public universities are highly subsidized by the central government for its citizens and so difficult for an outsider to enter. And so Adebolokun, it is not true that weak and average students attend private universities in ghana. It is also well known fact that most private universities in ghana have modern infrastructure and laboratories to advance the pursuit of knowledge and research by joining forces with Donor agencies, well endowed research stations across the globe and other international Accreditation agencies. For example, i am a third year student of the university College of Management studying BSc Supply Chain Management and Procurement. My university has been accredited by the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (UK) to run some of their programmes and so when i got to the 3rd year i had full exemptions for stage 1, 11, 111 and some papers in the professional stage. And so in effect i will graduate with a BSc and CIPS as well. Isn’t it amazing? This is what i called thinking out of the box approach to modern education. Let’s all rise up to the occasion and fix things in Nigeria. what are facing now in Nigeria is not a problem but a challenge and behind every challenge is a potential. God Bless Nigeria and Ghana. Alhamdulilah

    Much as I appreciate your response to my comments so far, however its worthy of observation that you unfortunately fell for the fancy and attraction of the name “University College of Management Studies” and pursuing an eye catching course of “BSc Supply Chain Management and Procurement”, a course accredited by the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (UK) Very interesting you chose such an obscure University college that barely ranks failrly even among the numerous mushroom private institutions in Ghana. I believe you are not unaware of other more credible Ghanaian public Professional studies Universities which entry requirements are as stringent and highly regulated as other public Universities and, as well offer Professional courses in ACCA, ACMA, ICMA, CIPS etc. The University of Professional Studies, UPS Legon; should naturally have been your choice or destination if your pursuit of quality education was the reason that brought you to Ghana. It is all easy to establish a college in Ghana, haven complied with certain rules, conditions and regulations and simply apply to get accreditation by these foreign professional courses groups who by themselves are not neccessarily an established institutions but largely an examining professionals who design and award certificates in various courses of their choice just as in ICAN in Nigera and or GICA, Ghana Institute of Chartered Accountants etc. Getting an exemption from a University that is barely known in Ghana and spending three years on to obtain BSc & CIPS is pathetic, disturbing and worrying the level the present generations of Nigerians have continued to slide in downward intellectual deficiency as a result of the kind of education they settle for in all manner of average colleges everywhere. Pls Musa Babangida, try visit “www.ghanaweb.com” to convince yourself, even Ghanaians at the level of the presidency are worried at the low quality of graduants in Ghanaian tertiarry institutions. Scroll to news of 3/12/2014 on “ghanaweb” to read Dr. Nii Moi Thompson of the office of the president.

    Dr Nii Moi Thompson’s analysis of education in Ghana has crystallized my confidence in Ghana’s Education system. I would rather prefer a country where educational challenges becomes a public wholesale so anyone can criticize it for the good of the system to a country where the challenges are constantly swept under the carpet for no good reasons. Look,Dr Nii Moi is a presidential staffer in the office of the president and yet criticizes the Government for not doing enough, that is the beauty of democracy. This guy still has his job intact. Juxtapose that in my Country and see what happens. Please get this right, I have not made any conclusion to the effect that Ghana is the doyen of academic excellence but what i have maintained from the start is the their system is efficient. My senior brother completed his PGD in Eduction at ABU Zaria in 2009 and up till date have not seen his academic transcript despite making so many follow ups to the Registrar. In Ghana, you graduate today and you can take your transcript the next day. if you misplace your cert. you can have it replaced the same if you remember your Student number and so on. Look, I can go on and on. we grade our lecturers at the end of every semester and the authorities act on the results. some lecturers are sacked for poor show and others are promoted for successes. The university College of Management Studies is not an obscure university like you’re suggesting. It’s a fully accredited university and affiliated to Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi. Check on the net at “https://www.ucoms.edu.gh/about-ucoms/accreditation-affiliation.html” It is not my intention to run PR for the University but would not stand aloof and watch Adebolokun throw dust in the eyes of the public. The good story is that at the end of my 4yr programme my BSc Degree will be awarded by the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi. If you ever want to school in Ghana, first check to see if the university is accredited by NAB. you can do that online at “https://nab.gov.gh/web3/”. Trust me there are so many unaccredited universities in Ghana but the accredited ones can be found using the site above. When a university is accredited by NAB then expect nothing but the best because they will make sure of that. the only problem is that they are expensive but comparatively cheaper than private universities in Nigeria. on the issue of how we are going to fare when we return; No wahala, you don’t plan a funeral until the body is dead, let’s finish this one first and when we get to the bridge we will cross.
