The students of the Ibadan poly have again caused more commotion within the school community when members of rival cult groups allegedly attacked one each at the very day the school management was to reopen school following it’s closure.
This recent violence is reported to have erupted at the south gate of the institution where lots of vehicles including the campus shuttle, buses, private cars and tricycles were vandalized. This is a very sad occurrence following the incident that led to the closure of the school when similar attack took place resulting in the death of one person.
The Registrar for the institution, Mrs Modupe Fawale made a statement requesting the payment of a reparation fee of N2000 by each student for the severe damage of the institution’s facilities.
The statement reads:
“Each student on resumption is to pay a reparation fee of N2, 000 for the enormous damages of the institution’s facilities.
“The students will also among other things swear to an affidavit to be of good conduct while those residing in neighboring communities would sign a bond with their landlords to be of good conduct and worthy ambassador of the institution.
“Each student is also to write an undertaking to be of utmost good conduct.”
Yesterday marks the fifth week of the compulsory break after closure by the polytechnic’s management and was supposed to be reopened, but to the surprise of the school management, very early before the working hours, some cult groups were reported to have filled up the south gate armed with various dangerous weapons like guns, broken bottles and axes.
It was only through the intervention of the Joint Security task force, Operation Burst, with the assistance of the Department of state service (SSS) that this violence was quenched.
