Achievers Varsity expels 6 for cultism

Cultism

Alaba-Olusola Oke

Owo (Ondo State) The Achievers University, Owo, Ondo State, on Thursday expelled six students for alleged engaging in cult  activities on the campus.

Prof. Samuel Ibiyem, the Vice Chancellor of the university, who briefed newsmen in Owo, said the institution took the disciplinary action against the students because of its zero tolerance on indiscipline.

The affected students are: Awolo David (Maass Communication Dept.),  Owolabi James (Political Science) , Oyeniran Temitope (Nursing Science)  and Yahaya Mohammed (Medical Lab Science) .

Others are: Owolabi Opeyemi (Computer Science Department) and Onagoruwa Oyinlola (Biochemistry Department).

According to Ibiyemi, the students were in third academic year of study.

He said that their parents had been informed about the development.

” Their expulsion from the university was premised on their involvement in cultism after all fair hearing  and due  process  within the law establishing the institution.

”  The six students ceased to be students of Achievers University, Owo. Anybody (individual or corporate) dealing  with them as Achievers students does so at their own risk.

” The management of the university has set up fact  finding committee to conduct a thorough investigation among the students to identify any other student involved in such illegal organisation.

” The university council and management hereby shows, by this effort, the zero tolerance for  cultism in Achievers University, Owo.

“The university is opened to any information that is relevant for the discipline and proper grooming of its students,” he stated.

NAN reports that the students were later handed over to the police for further investigation and onward prosecution.

Also speaking on the scourge  of Lassa fever, Ibiyemi noted  that the school had collaborated with the Federal Medical Center, Owo, as part of efforts  to prevent students from contacting the disease .

” We have a team in the FMC , Owo, that advises us and we also advise our students on the ways to live hygienic life and thereby keeping the disease away,” he said.
