Catholic school pastes the names of students on church pews to discourage absence during mass

In order to discourage its students from missing mass, a Catholic university Veritas located in Abuja, has implemented an idea involving the pasting of their names on church pews.

By profiling each undergraduate in the school on a unique seat, the institution hopes to identify those who show up late for worship or fail to attend at all.

The aggressive measure carries a week suspension for students who are not able to arrive on time according to Instablog9ja on Instagram.

Some offenders who are reportedly in their 4th year at Veritas are already serving punishment according to reports.

Others considered lucky were reportedly told to rewrite the university's Student Handbook to be submitted within a deadline.
