The suspects

The management of the Federal Polytechnic, Ilaro, Ogun State has reacted to the arrest of the school’s Students Union Government (SUG) President, Adegboye Emmanuel Olatunji, by the police for cultism.

The school’s Public Relations Officer,  Sola Abiala, said the management had already suspended Olatunji a month ago for the same cultism offence.

“This is consequent upon the foiling of the meeting of some cult groups from the neighbouring community, by the security architecture and network of the Polytechnic, the Local Vigilante Group in conjunction with Nigerian Police Force and the Directorate of State Security.

“The suspension of Mr. Adegboye is in line with the act establishing the Polytechnic and the provision of the Students Handbook, coupled with the Polytechnic’s zero tolerance to cultism, pending his appearance before the Students Disciplinary Committee to establish his culpability or otherwise.

“The Management therefore uses this medium to re-emphasize its zero tolerance for cultism and other misdemeanors,” he said.
