“The police quick response and intervention was evidently responsible for their arrest.” It added that,”The two suspected students were suspended indefinitely pending the outcome of the police investigation and further findings on the matter.”

The statement however noted that,” Adewusi Vincent who was mentioned along with the two has ceased to be a student of the institution having been withdrawn from the Polytechnic since 2017 for poor performance.”

“The Management wishes to state unequivocally that cases of cultism have been a thing of past in the institution as the new management under Dr. Lateef Ademola Olatunji has purged the institution of all forms of cultism, gangsterism and other anti social vices since he came on board as Rector in 2017.”stressed the statement. ” The Management has been dealing decisively with any student suspected to be involved in cultism or any criminal acts.”added the statement.

It warned that,”Other offences such as examination malpractices, sexual harassment are also gross misconduct at the Polytechnic which attract outright expulsion from the institution. Students found culpable are equally handed over to the Law Enforcement Agents for prosecution.

Published

on

The Inspector General of Police and the Director of the Department of State Services have been ordered to arrest the suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Walter Onnoghen by The Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) and produce him in court on the next adjourned date.


Chairman of the Tribunal, Danladi Umar, on Wednesday, issued the bench warrant against Onnoghen following his absence in court for arraignment.

 The Tribunal had at its last sitting on February 4, ordered that Onnoghen must make himself available in court today February 13, for arraignment over alleged failure to declare his assets.

Onnoghen was not in court as at the time the matter came up on Wednesday and his lawyers led by Adegboyega Awomolo, SAN prayed the court to take all pending applications relating to the trial, particularly the issue of the tribunal’s jurisdiction to hear the matter.

Prosecution counsel, Aliyu Umar SAN, however urged the court to address the issue of the defendant’s absence in court for his arraignment before the application on jurisdiction.

In a brief ruling, CCT Chairman recalled that he had insisted that the defendant appear in court today for arraignment and since he was not in court, he left the Tribunal with no choice than to order for his arrest.

He consequently ordered the Inspector General of Police and the Director General of the DSS to arrest Onnoghen and produce him in court on Friday, February 15 for arraignment.
