Defending the school activities before her arrest, the coordinator, Mrs. Lucky, said that the university was registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission, CAC, and was making moves to get NUC’s approval.
She disclosed that the institution started in 2010 in Benin Edo state as a mobile scholarship programme.

The head of legal department of NUC, Moses Awe, who led the operation explained that World Mission University came to the commission’s knowledge about six months back when a student of the school inquired about its legality from the commission.
