The management of Federal Polytechnic, Nasarawa has expelled two students of the institution over their involvement in cult activities.
According to NAN, Uba Mana, the institution’s director of information, publicity and protocol, broke the news in a statement on Wednesday.
The statement said the expulsion of the students was to serve as deterrent to others and for the overall development of the institution.
It added that the measure followed confession by the affected students that they belonged to a cult group.
The statement said the students were arrested by security operatives attached to the institution after which the matter was investigated.
“The arrest of the students was made by the security operatives of the polytechnic, coupled with an investigative report and the confession made by the affected students that they belonged to the unlawful group. They are hereby expelled from the institution,” it read.
The statement also quoted Abdullahi Alhassan-Ahmed, the institution’s rector, as affirming the expulsion of the students.
It added that the rector’s affirmation was in line with the provision of section 204 (e) of the institution’s students’ hand book approved in 2018.
The institution’s management was said to have earlier vowed to deal decisively with any student found indulging in examination malpractice, drug abuse, cultism and other negative acts.
