The management of the Federal University of Dutsi-ma (FUDutsi-ma) in Katsina state, has suspended four students of the institution indefinitely for alleged involvement in cultism.


NAN reports that Habibu Garba-Matazu, the varsity’s director of public relations and protocol, broke the news in a statement on Wednesday.

Garba-Matazu said Armayau Hamisu-Bichi, the institution’s vice-chancellor, approved the suspension.

According to him, the vice-chancellor’s approval was based on a security report submitted by Tanimu Dari-Atiku, the institution’s acting chief security officer.


The institution’s spokesman said the report indicated that the affected students were from sociology and computer science departments while accusing them of belonging to various cult groups.

He added that the indefinite suspension will hold until the final investigation into the matter is completed.

“They are suspended indefinitely, pending the final security investigation. The vice-chancellor strongly warned students at all levels to desist from cultism and other social vices,” he said.


“Cultism is source of grave concern to the university management and to all well-meaning, law abiding members of the university community.”

Garba-Matazu said the suspension was indicative of the varsity management’s commitment to rid cultism and punish anyone found involved in such.
