NANS, NAPS Fumes As Management Suspends SUG President Arrested During Cult Meeting
Following the arrest and parade of the newly elected SUG president of the Federal Polytechnic, Ilaro by the Nigeria Police Force, the school management has announced his indefinite suspension.
ZERO TOLERANCE FOR CULTISM: FPI SUSPENDS STUDENT UNION PRESIDENT
The Federal Polytechnic, Ilaro has suspended the President of the institution’s Student Union, Mr. Adegboye Emmanuel Olatunji for alleged involvement in cultism. This is consequent upon the foiling of the meeting of some cult groups from the neighbouring 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.
Subsequently, Comrade Helma of NANS , NAPS, NANS ZONE D, JCC OGUN STATE in conjunction with NANS NATIONAL had urged union leaders to stand up and fight for the SUG President who was arrested and paraded as a cultist.
In a circular sighted by our correspondent, the student union leaders vowed to protect their own stating that regalia found on him was planned and planted on him by the NPF just to tarnish his image.
JUSTICE MUST PREVAIL
An injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere they say. It came as a surprise to me as a person when I heard that the Students’ Union president of Federal Polytechnic Ilaro was arrested during a cult meeting.
As a well nurtured comrade, I refused to conclude that the story was true or false because I don’t know the true side of the story but I got more confused the moment I got the information that the Union President, Olatunji was not caught with black jacket on him and in fact, he was kidnapped to that spot where he was arrested.
The most amazing part of it all is that the state Police PRO has sent a write up to bloggers to publish in an attempt to ignite the FPISU without proper investigation.
Should we say the Nigeria Police Force in the state already had reservation for Nigerian Students or what?
From the experience we had in the past, before the police would release anything about a suspect on media, they would have concluded a deep investigation about the issue. Are they telling us that they are through with their investigations under 24hours?
Now that they’ve resorted to use media before investigation, how will they rebuild the tarnished image of the accused if he got exonerated at the end of the day?
This is an injustice on the part of the FPISU president for not giving him fair hearing before broadcasting negative things about him and justice must come to play.
It should be noted that i have zero tolerance for cultism just like other other well meaning Nigerians but proper investigation is all I’m clamoring because the case at hand will not only affect the image of the accused. Considerations should be given to the FPI as an institution, our union should be considered as well and lastly, Ogun state image will not be spared in this case at hand.
In conclusion, I’m using this medium to call the commissioner of police to order not to parade the accused Union President without proper investigations.
