The Nigerian education system undoubtedly needs a lot of reform and it is sad to note that the people who are charged with making these changes are also involved in the rot that the system is facing.
Reports have made the rounds on social media of two students of Federal Polytechnic Ilaro , Ogun state, who were caught in their full cultist regalia during an initiation meeting.
The SUG president of the institution, Adegboye Emmanuel Olatunji, was arrested alongside another student named Olanrewaju Taiwo.
According to reports from Channels TV, the duo was apprehended in their full black axe regalia during an initiation ceremony for new members.
The Police Public Relations Officer of the state said that the students were arrested after the police received information from members of the public about a group of people in the bush suspected to be cultist trying to initiate members.
The PPRO said: “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”.
Reacting to the report, the institution through a statement issued by the deputy registrar public relations, Sola Abiola, revealed that the SUG president and the other student have been suspended.
She said: “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”.
