Six students of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, who were found guilty of involvement in cult activities on campus have been suspended indefinitely by the school authorities.
A statement signed by the university’s registrar, Margaret Omosule, on Wednesday, gave the names and the matriculation numbers of the affected students as Onyekwusi Praise Chinemerem, ASE /2014/218; Ojo Abiodun Olamide, MCB /2012 /149 and Ude John, ASE /2015 /362.
A call was put through to the police who stormed the scene of the initiation and effected the arrest of 12 of the students. After police investigations, six of the students were said to have confessed to being members of different secret cult groups.
