Six students of the Achievers University, Owo, Ondo state, have been expelled for their alleged involvement in activities of cultism.
According to the management of the institution, the affected students include, Awolo David (Mass Communication), Owolabi James ( Political Science), Oyeniran Temitope (Nursing Science), Yahaya Mohammed (Medical Lab Science), Owolabi Opeyemi (Computer Science) and Onagoruwa Oyinlola (Biochemistry).
The Vice Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Samuel Ibiyemi who spoke with journalists in Owo, on Thursday said the institution took the disciplinary action against the erring students due to its zero tolerance for indiscipline.
According to him, all the axed students were in 300 level in their various departments of the varsity and their parents had been carried along on the development.
Prof. Ibiyemi said, “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 his or her 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 organization.
“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 are relevant for the discipline and proper grooming of the students.”
