Group Offers Arik Stowaway Teenager Scholarship

De Raufs, a volunteer group extolling the virtues of Rauf Aregbesola, the Governor of Osun State has volunteered to sponsor 15year old stowaway boy, Daniel Ohikhena who  hid in the tyre compartment of Arik air flight from Benin to Lagos.

In a statement by the Director General of the group, Comrade Amitolu Shittu, the group stated that it  is ready to give scholarship to Daniel up to university level and help him realise his dream of travelling by air legitimately.

According to him, the little boy’s ambition should be nurtured through qualitative education, and the group is ready to give the boy all the necessary support to make his dream a reality.

  2. This is awesome news.this is the way sensible and caring society should think.spinning a negative into a positive outcome who knows if the boy will still write Nigeria's name in hollywood as the first academy award stuntman ,actor or an award winning aeronautic engineer ?we just dont know
    i saw an home video of lewis hamilton at 3yrs old playing with toy car racers and i was really impressed with how awesome some parents are in steering their children to greatness

  7. It really a great idea to sponsor him to school cos if that boy happens to be a thief or something else, no one will catch him if he could pass all the security and hang on a plane tyre, then he is very smart.

  20. That's a cheering news. However,I hope such a largesse won't encourage other boys to attempt such a risky,desperate act. Visit http://www.olusolaoso.blogspot.com/ for captivating stories on entertainment,politics,sports and love.

  21. I hope young boys will not try this style o, or parents might intentionally send their children to try it so that they might become popular or get scholarship. LOL!!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Nice move. May God make d boy a better person. I just hope other small boys won't start copying him just 2 get scholarship.

  23. Good! I said he needed a sponsor earlier on and luckily, he got one. The boy needs motivation not condemnation. Let's just hope that when all the noise dies down, these sponsors don't fade into thin air... Also let's just hope no more young Nigerian Boys or Ghanaians don't take to the airports and start hanging on Plane windows and wings just to be like this naughty boy. I said Ghanaians because they always try to top Nigerians...

    His mother should keep an eye on him if she too is not one of those absent mothers and in a few years time, she will see her son become an aeronautical Engineer, since he seems fascinated by planes, if not, maybe a minister of Aviation where he can even convert one of the planes for his private use lol or like many have suggested, an Academy award winner as the first black James Bond since Hollywood and the world loves a great story with a happy ending.

    Good luck to this youngster, I truly wish him well.

    Tweet me @DSmartNigerian or just read my tweets and be inspired.

    I think i concur with what i read in Naijanewssweep.com that the granting of this scholarship is utterly wrong and might encourage other like minded boys to improvise other means of committing criminal acts.
