MAPOLY Suspends Ten Students Over Cult Clash


Pollowing a cult clash that breached the peace on the campus of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta on Tuesday, the authorities of the institution have suspended ten students, believed to have masterminded the disturbances on the campus indefinitely.


Announcing their suspension yesterday, the Registrar of the institution, Mr. Yemi Olumide, through a press statement signed by the school’s spokesman, Mr. Sulaimon Adebiyi, described their action as a gross misconduct, warning the affected students to stay-off the campus in their own interest.


According to the statement, “following the breach of peace caused by some students on Tuesday 6 September, 2011 which constitutes an act of gross misconduct, the Polytechnic Management has approved the indefinite suspension of the following students:


“Olubodun Isiaka Sunday, ND 11 (Accountancy) Sylvester Egbe (HND 11, Accountancy) Olumide Danisa Raymon, HND 11, Marketing, Badmus Nurudeen Ishola (HND1 Accountancy), Adekoyeni Gbenga (HND11 Elect-Elect), Adeagbo Oluwakayode (ND11, Marketing), Adeyeri Idris, (year 3, Science Laboratory Technology), Alao Azeez Olajide, (ND11, Marketing), Rafiu Abdul Mojeed, (HND11 Accountancy) and Adesanya Ismail (HND11 Accountancy).


The students were advised by the school authorities in their own interest to stay off the campus so as to avoid being arrested by security men.


Our correspondent gathered that the cult clash occurred following alleged misappropriation of funds by a member of the students union of the school. According to a source, the students union leader fled with a huge amount of money.


The clash was said to have escalated on Tuesday and prompted Mobile Policemen to arrest some students.


Those arrested were whisked away to Police Command, Oke-Ilewo but were later released.
