A professor in South Korea has been sentenced to 12 years in jail for assaulting a student.
The South Korean court sentenced the man, whose name was given as Jang, after it was revealed that he forced a student to eat human faeces and drink urine during a two-year period of physical and psychological assault.
The 52-year-old professor was arrested in July after his victim - a design student now aged 29 - attempted to commit suicide to escape his ordeal.
Jang, along with other former students, had also assaulted the victim with a baseball bat and other weapons.
The victim also had a plastic bag forced over his face and filled with pepper spray, after which he was fed human excrement.

"The accused trampled upon his victim's human dignity," the court said.
The three students who had aided Jang were sentenced to between three and six years in prison.

What a brave and noble little man! Feng Molin's mother has been blind since childhood and when his father lost his sight in 2006 after suffering acute meningitis, the then 4-year-old from northwest China's Shaaanxi Province, had to start taking care of them. The family has since then lived on subsistence allowances from the government and donations from individuals.
Along with schoolwork, Feng cooks, cleans and does farm work. During his second year of primary school, Feng transferred to the central school of Yanmen, a town far away from his home after the village school was removed; a move which required him to live on campus during schooldays. On weekends, he returns home to do the cleaning work, farm work, and prepare all the food, firewood of the next week for his parents.
After doing his household work, only then would he sit down to complete his schoolwork.
Feng’s heartwarming story went viral after it was broadcast on a news program, CCTV. It touched the hearts of many who offered to assist the strong-willed boy. One man even offered to adopt him and send a nanny to take care of his parents.
Feng was grateful for the donations but rejected the adoption offer. "Staying with my parents is my greatest joy," he said, "I will work hard to create a better future with my own hands."
Members of Muslim Youths in Da’wah on Tuesday had a peaceful protest at the headquarters of the National Youth Service Corps in Abuja against the ban on the use of hijab by female Muslim corps members, especially during orientation camps.
However the Director-General of the NYSC, Brigadier-General, Johnson Olawumi, insisted on the ban, saying it was “for security reasons” and will not be lifted.
The national coordinator of LMYiD, Luqman Hassan; and the Deputy Coordinator, Kamarudeen Adefila, had told the NYSC DG that a major protest by Muslims was averted because of the ban on hijab in most orientation camps.
Hassan told the DG:
“We are here to discuss with you about the incident that happened recently in various camps across the country. We have a guiding principle which is based on the Holy Q’uran. We are all Nigerians and the principle which guides us is the constitution and the African Charter on Human rights.
“Members of the NYSC are Nigerians who have contributed to the development of this country; female corps members deserve protection by the NYSC. We don’t believe that a female corps member putting on hijab has done any wrong against the Act establishing the NYSC. So they deserve the respect of the NYSC. We have travelled far and wide and visited different camps. Why are the rights of female corps members being infringed upon. We are here to register our displeasure.”
“Many Muslim organisations wanted to protest, but we said wait a while. In fact, we have to intervene to avoid the situation and if Muslims march on the streets, it will attract a lot of negative comments, but people won’t know why we are protesting,” Adefila had added.
“Under my leadership, the NYSC will accord respect to every corps member, irrespective of tribe and religion. The incident in Benue State was caused by the use of long hijab. The security situation in the country is tough. There is the danger of somebody using hijab for other reasons.
“Why are you so particular on your alleged infraction on the rights of youths without mentioning any one of such on Christian youths? Produce your evidence, write to us and I can assure you that we will act fast. When the incident in Benue State was reported to us, I swung into action and ensured that the camp commandant was decamped immediately. We are not magicians; if you have any evidence, write to us and we will not hesitate to act.”
The NYSC Legal Adviser, Ahmed Tijani Ibrahim, said the incident in Benue State was still being investigated.
"I’m a Muslim and in our camps, I know that we have treated everybody equally. You mentioned the fact that you would have proceeded to protest. Very minor issues could trigger off mass protest.
“We will see the way forward to this complaint. I can assure you that the issue will not be swept under the carpet. The NYSC is very sensitive to the issue of religion and immediately we heard of it, we swung into action and we are on it because issues of religion are very sensitive.”

A petrol station, Alkad and Sons Nigeria Limited, situated along Olorunsogo, Ilorin, Kwara state capital suffered heavy loss yesterday, November 23 as the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) gave out their fuel to motorists and motorcyclists free of charge.
Daily Trust reports that the surveillance team of the DPR caught the station hoarding a total of 2300 litres of petrol, following a tip off.
The station had allegedly told buyers that it had exhausted its stock but when the team led by Salvation Philip, the operation controller of DPR got there, they discovered the station had 2300 litres of fuel.
Another station, Nasmut Nigeria Limited, located in Otte, Asa local government area of the state was found hoarding a large volume of petrol also.
Philip ordered that the commodity be given to members of the public free, saying he was acting in accordance with the directive of Minister of State for Petroleum.
He said: “ We are out for surveillance because of the situation on ground and we want to make sure that the fuel that comes in is distributed to commuters. When we got to this place (Alkad), we dug and discovered that they (management of the station) were hoarding 2300 litres of fuel. So, we are simply enforcing the ministerial directive. We are giving the fuel free to fellow Nigerians that need it. It is a critical time we have to utilize what is available. This is the second station so far we caught hoarding .”
According to him, it would serve a warning to others hoarding or intending to hoard petroleum product.
Philip added that anybody caught hoarding, diverting or flouting petroleum laws and regulations would be made to face the law.
In past weeks, Nigerians have been groaning over the increasing scarcity of fuel across the country, with petrol stations hoarding the product and black marketers selling at exorbitant prices.
Last week, Ibe Kachikwu, the minister of state for petroleum resources ordered the DPR to seal off fuel stations found to be hoarding petroleum products and give out the petroleum free to the public.
Vice chancellor of National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), Prof. Vincent Ado Tenebe, has disclosed that the university has the capacity to admit over one million new students annually. He stated that this has been made possible through its open and distance learning education.
Tenebe made this revelation at the unveiling of the university’s new goodwill ambassador,
Tenebe said Nigeria records an excess of 1million students yearly from prospective university admission seekers due to the inability of the existing 124 universities to admit above the current 500,000 carrying capacity.
According to him, NOUN now has presence and learning points in all the 36 states in Nigeria, plus the Federal capital.
“124 universities cannot only admit 500,000 students, the carrying capacities of these universities is always stretched. NOUN can admit 1million students and they will get the same quality education.
“Any student graduating from NOUN will be graduating at par with students of other universities across Nigeria,”Tenebe said.
He added that getting educated through open and distance learning prepares graduates for work with less supervision in the future.
He added that countries like China, India, Indonesia, United Kingdom and the United States of America uses this means to educate their millions citizens.
While urging Nigerians to take advantage of the democratized system of learning at the university to increase literacy level in the country as NOUN will have a study Centre in each of the 774 LGAs in the next 15 years

The Lagos State University (LASU) management is standing by the decision to increase acceptance fees from N10, 000 to N20, 000. The University's students union have protested against this increase and demanded for a reversal of the fees with immediate effect to prevent crisis.
The LASU authorities, in response, have maintained that they have the right to review and increase fees, aside tuition fees which the State government was in charge of. LASU registrar, Mr Akin Lewis made this known while speaking to press on Friday.
Lewis said that the university only expected the new students who had been offered provisional admission, to pay an acceptance fee.
“This is not the first time new students are paying acceptance fee, so, an increment should not be an alarm, the management has the right to review and increase fees.
“This is not an increment in tuition fees, but an increment in acceptance fee and the management has reasons for its decisions,” he said.
Meanwhile, the students' union, has released a statement which asked new students not to pay these fees until the issue is rectified.
They insisted that making this decision without informing the union is wrong.
”The recent increment of the new students’ acceptance fee and indigenous verification fee, from N10, 000 and 1,000 respectively to 20,000 and 5,000 came as a shock to LASUSU.
“We state emphatically that the management coming out with this increment at this time is a calculated attempt on the part of the management.
“The idea is to introduce what we tag as a “divide and rule” principle between students and the newly admitted students, which the students’ union firmly and judiciously stands against.
“This is also an attempt to bring back the already solved issue of school fees hike; an increment in the acceptance fee will surely lead to an increase in the school fees of new students, which we reject in its totality," it said.

A coalition of Non Indigenous Students of the Rivers State University of Science & Technology carried out a peaceful protest in the school premises.
The protest was due to the 300% difference between indigene fees and that of students who are indigenes of Rivers state. The Non Indigenous Students reportedly vented their streets of the school to vent their frustration on Wednesday, 18th November.

According to the aggrieved student, former governor of the state, Rotimi Amaechi reduced the fees last session and all students were paying the same amount as fees but since Governor Nyesom Wike took office with the new Vice Chancellor of the school, Prof Blessing Didia, the fees for non-indigenes were increased while those for indigenes stayed the same.
The students are now calling on the Federal Government to see to it that the situation in the school is fairly rectified.
Zimbabwe's First Lady Grace Mugabe has sparked outrage after suggesting women are to blame for rape cause of clothes they wear.
According to reports from Zimbabwe, Grace said while addressing thousands of Zanu PF supporters at a rally in Mberengwa yesterday:
“If you walk around wearing mini skirts displaying your thighs and inviting men to drool over you, then you want to complain when you have been raped? It’s unfortunate
because it will be your fault.''
She called on women to wear long dresses or trousers. Grace said the type of dressing, which left women’s legs exposed, was a result of moral decadence.
“Wear clothes like Mai Mugabe or you can chose a trousers, but not those which are too tight. These types of clothes are the signs of moral decadence in our country,” Grace said.
The statement by the First Lady comes at a time women’s movements in Zimbabwe, Katswe Sisterhood held a demonstration in Harare demanding the right to dress as they please.
Former Katswe Sisterhood director, Winnet Shamuyarira said she was angered by Grace’s statement.
MDC-T spokesperson Obert Gutu said: “The statement by Grace is very disgraceful and denigrating to any woman and more so coming from a woman and the First Lady.”
The apex Igbo socio–cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, on Friday disowned the Director of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, and his cohorts in their struggle for Biafra agitation.
Addressing reporters in Awka, the Chairman, Forum of State Presidents of Ohanaeze in the seven Igbo –speaking states, Dr. Chris Eluomunoh, said no right thinking person would support what he called the madness of the group .
He said: “You will notice that Ohanaeze has been very silent on the issue of Biafra insurgency, though the youth wing of Ohanaeze has been speaking on it. Ohanaeze, as the Igbo cultural group, cannot support Biafra and we dissociate ourselves from it totally.
“Igbo people have contributed much to the development of Nigeria and we cannot allow some people to jeopardise the lives and efforts of millions of Igbo residing in all parts of Nigeria.
“We believe that anybody who has any issue to settle with the Federal Government should use dialogue and that is why we participated in the last National Conference. No sane Igbo person would want to witness a repeat of the kind of thing that happened during the Civil War.
“(Chief Odumegwu) Ojukwu, who led the Biafra war, returned to Nigeria from exile and contested elections in Nigeria, which showed that he was fully integrated into Nigeria and was a full-fledged Nigerian before he died.”
Eluemunor denied the speculation that politicians of Igbo extraction were supporting the Biafran agitation, adding that their support came mainly from outside the country.
He, however, said that part of the reasons for the agitation was the dearth of infrastructure in Igbo land and pleaded with President Muhammadu Buhari to address the infrastructural decay in the area.
He called on Buhari to declare a state of emergency on the infrastructure problem in the South East by rehabilitating the federal roads that have become death traps due to neglect.
He said doing so would help to correct the imbalances and marginalisation being suffered by the people of the area.
He said, “We know the marginalisation was not caused by him, but we plead that he should look into the problems being complained about by the people of South East and South–South. He has won the election and we in Ohanaeze support him and will work with him for the unity of the country.”
Don't really know who this message is directed towards but it looks like C.E.O of Jambaze is not happy about something.

According to Leadership reports, registrar of the institution, Mr. Sam Egwu, signed a release which showed that the affected students are those who gained admission into the Work and Study Programme (WASP) from year 2000- 2006 and are yet to graduate.
He said: “In line with the five-year WASP normal duration for degree programmes and four years for Direct Entry programmes respectively, the students after 15 years are yet to graduate.”
“The action has been approved by the WASP Board and the Senate of the university respective but now said that special waiver would be given for extension of the programme by obtaining programme extension form from the WASP office at CAS campus of the university on payment of N2000.”
The affected students, in response, has accused the university of frustrating the students. They referred to the action taken as unfortunate, uncalled for and urged the state governor, Chief Dave Umahi, to overhaul the management of the institution as most of them are either corrupt or not serious with the programme.
“We got admission into the programme in 2001 and wrote our final exam in 2006 but between then and now, the institution is yet to either compute our results or make available the result to us.
“The programme is an avenue the institution is currently using to extort money from poor Ebonyi indigenes and 90% of the students that enrolled into the programme between 2000 and 2006 are yet to graduate,” they said.
The expelled students, yesterday, protested the expulsion and stated that on several occasions, some prominent students of the programme had threatened to drag the institution to court which prompted them to compute and issue results to them while others are left to their fate.
They further noted that they would adopt all legal means to ensure that the institution issue them with their result, pointing out that they would not allow themselves to suffer because of the lack of purpose of the institution.

On the secret of his marriage
When you go everywhere, people talk about principles of organizational development, and how to keep it going, but no one talks about character. Character comes from the word statue, a statue is something that has been fixed, it doesn’t change, and it is stable. If you see the image of Kwame Nkrumah at the museum, his statue is standing in one position, doing forward ever, backward never.
When it’s raining, or there is hurricane, it is always in the same position, doing the same thing, it is stable. It doesn’t change, that is what you call character. That is what builds character. What am I doing in the night is it the same thing I am doing in the afternoon? When there is no one watching, what are you doing? That is character, those are the kind of leaders we need. I mean, in the morning, if someone brings a bribe will you accept it? Are you unchangeable? Are you unstable? Or you are fixed. That is character, so we try as much as possible to build our characters. You don’t trade character, you don’t buy it, and you don’t sell it. You are not unclean with it. Character over the years is temptations over the years. Temptation basically, means testing for weakness. So, if over the years you’ve gone through a lot of temptations and you were able to withstand them, you’ve built your character which builds your value system, your morals, your ethics, which becomes you at the end of the day. So, we try not to run away from temptation but to overcome it day in day out and that is what builds our character as we grow up, and that is what defines us.
If you have to say something special to your wife, what will you say to her?
My wife is the only reason I am Majid Michel. My wife is responsible for me being Majid Michel. She is the reason I’m Majid Michel. I mean, apart from God, second to God physically, if she never supported me or never understood my job, there’s no way I could have made it.
