Offa Poly suspends suspected cultists paraded by Police

The Management of the Federal Polytechnic, Offa (FEDPOFFA) has suspended two students of the institution, Tajudeen Selim and Temitope Omotosho alleged engagement in cultism.

They were among some suspects paraded by the police for cult activities.

Prior to their arrest, the institution had reported the incidence of forceful initiation to security agencies when a student who was forcefully initiated lodged a complaint to the institution.

The statement said the police quick response to the complaint was responsible for the arrest.

The two students were suspended indefinitely pending the outcome of the police investigation.

The statement noted that a third person, Adewusi Vincent who was named along with the duo ceased being a student of the institution having been withdrawn from the Polytechnic since 2017 for poor performance.

The Management wishes to state unequivocally that cases of cultism has been a thing of past in the institution as the new management under Dr. Lateef Olatunji has purged the institution of all forms of cultism, gangsterism and other anti-social vices since he came on board as Rector in  2017.

The Management has been dealing decisively with any student suspected to be involved in cultism or any criminal acts. Other offences such as examination malpractices, sexual harassment are also gross misconduct at the Polytechnic which attracts outright expulsion from the institution. Students found culpable are equally handed over to the Law Enforcement Agents for prosecution.
