The management of Federal Polytechnic, Ilaro, Ogun State has suspended indefinitely the president of the school’s Students Union Government [SUG], Adegboye Olatunji, over cult-related offences.

TheNation reports that Olatunji and one Olarewaju Taiwo were nabbed in a bush in the state in full regalia of the dreaded Black Axe cult group on Sunday.

It was gathered that they were nabbed during an initiation ceremony.

The institution, in a statement signed by Deputy Registrar (Public Relations), Sola Abiala, said Olatunji’s suspension was in line with its zero-tolerance for cultism.

The statement read,

“This is consequent upon the foiling of the meeting of some cult groups from the neighboring community, by the security architecture and network of the Polytechnic, the Local Vigilante Group in conjunction with Nigerian Police Force and the Directorate of State Security.

“The suspension of Mr. Adegboye is in line with the Act establishing the Polytechnic and the provision of the Students Handbook coupled with the Polytechnic’s zero tolerance to cultism, pending his appearance before the Students Disciplinary Committee to establish his culpability or otherwise.

“The Management, therefore, use this medium to re-emphasize its zero tolerance for cultism and other misdemeanors.”

The arrest of the duo was confirmed by the Police Public Relations Officer [PPRO] in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said this in a statement on Monday.

Oyeyemi said the suspects were caught in the bush in full regalia of the dreaded black axe cult group have been taken to custody.

He said,

“The duo were arrested following information received by police at Ilaro Division from members of the public that some group of people suspected to be cultists were sighted in a bush at Gbogidi area of Ilaro where they were trying to initiate new members into their dreaded group.

“On receiving the information, the DPO Ilaro Division, CSP Olayemi Jacob mobilized his patrol team and swiftly moved to the scene where the two suspects were arrested with the assistance of members of the public while others escaped through the bush.

“The two arrested cultists who are in full regalia of the dreaded black axe cult group have been taken to custody at Ilaro divisional headquarters where they are being currently interrogated.”

The PPRO said the Commissioner of Police, Kenneth Ebrimson, has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to anti-cultists section of the state Criminal Investigation and intelligence department for discreet investigation.
