The latest on the trending saga of the Nigerian Training Centre for the Blind, Ogbomoso is the indefinite suspension handed a leader of the protests by the students of the centre over alleged high-handedness, rape, stealing of food money of the students among other infractions against their handlers, whom were later transferred out of the school while those alleged of rape were suspended.
Akeem Sulaiman was issued a letter of indefinite suspension last Friday for “unruly behaviour, insurbodination” and other misdemeanours.
However, many believed it was payback time for him in view of his role in the protests even as government officials were allegedly of the view that the actions of the students also embarrassed them particularly in the aspect of the meal served the students.
His suspension expectedly generated furore. Defending the action yesterday on a radio programme (Awa ra wa pelu Oriyomi Hamzat) at Agidigbo FM Ibadan, Barrister Ayodele Adekanmbi, Executive Assistant to Oyo state governor Engr Seyi Makinde on Persons Living With Disability, stressed that Akeem was rude to the team that visited the school on Thursday, December 2.
Adekanmbi said Akeem had altercations with the members of the team when he was challenged what audacity he had to walk out of the meeting.
However, an audio recording of the proceeding obtained by depicted something different.
In the audio recording the meeting had already taken off when someone identified Akeem outside the venue and was consequently summoned.
At that juncture Barrister Adekanmbi interjected and flared up while ordering Akeem be given letter of suspension immediately.
But contrary to insinuation Akeem did not argue aside explaining he asked someone to call a colleague to come and attend the meeting.
He also only responded to questions he was asked like ‘from which state are you from?’ etc.

In essence there is no evidence of rudeness on the part of Akeem beyond his being outside the meeting venue. And he had explained that he was just coming to the meeting venue and did not walk out as alleged.
