OAU Suspends Six Students For Cultism by XVIER(m): 9:15am On Aug 23, 2018
The management of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, Osun State, has announced the suspension of six undergraduates at the university for being members of a cult.

The university announced the suspension in a circular on Wednesday by the Registrar of the university, Mrs Margaret Omosule, which was made available to our correspondent in Osogbo by the Public Relations Officer of the university, Mr Abiodun Olanrewaju.

The registrar said the university suspended the students following their alleged confession to the police that they were members of some proscribed groups.

She said they were suspended because the students violated the oath they made during their matriculation, as well as to make the university uninhabitable for cult members.

The registrar said the university received information in July 2018, that two students of the institution were forcefully initiated into a cult outside the university campus.

She said the security unit of the university investigated the information, adding that at the end, 12 students were apprehended and handed over to the Osun State Police Command.

The circular read in part, “After the investigation of the suspected students by the Nigeria Police Force, the university on August 20, 2018, received a detailed report of the police findings where it was confirmed that six students of the university had admitted their membership of proscribed groups, thus breaching their matriculation oaths, code of conduct and other university regulations.

“Accordingly and in accordance with the relevant statutes, the following students have been suspended pending the outcome of investigations by the appropriate Students’ Disciplinary Committee. They are Onyekwusi Chinemerem, Ojo Olamide, Ude John, Oladoye Olakunmi, Ayeyi Ayomide and Davis Olakunle.

“The management hereby uses this medium to assure the university community and all other stakeholders, most especially the students, that adequate measures have been put in place to secure lives and property and ensure a peaceful environment for all residents on the university estate.”
