“The president of the Students’ Union Government of Federal Polytechnic Ilaro Adegboye Emmanuel Olatunji and one Olarewaju Taiwo have been arrested by men of Ogun State police command on Sunday 9th of February 2020 for cultism,” he said.
Oyeyemi added that the duo was arrested following information received by police at Ilaro division from members of the public that some group of people suspected to be cultists were sighted in a bush at Gbogidi area of Ilaro where they were trying to initiate new members.
“The two arrested cultists who are in full regalia of the dreaded black axe cult group have been taken to custody at Ilaro divisional headquarters where they are being currently interrogated,” he revealed.
In reaction to this arrest, the school authorities on Monday announced the suspension of the SUG President.
Sola Abiola, the polytechnic’s deputy registrar, public relations, in a statement on Monday, noted Adegboye’s suspension was in line with the institution’s zero tolerance for cultism.
“The suspension of 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 statement read.
“The Management, therefore, uses this medium to re-emphasise its zero tolerance for cultism and other misdemeanours.”
