The Ibadan Polytechnic expressed concern over the Friday’s attack by suspected cultists during the school’s matriculation ceremony.


Suspected cult members had launched an attack on the institution during the matriculation ceremony of ND1 and HND1 students and some were injured.

The management should be able to bring the responsible to book so that they can be used as an example to others who are also threading this path.

Another student, Thomas Samuel, while speaking said, The fight started through an argument. I was about going to take pictures with someone when i heard some persons arguing, and before i knew it, i saw two of those guys running and they came back with two different axes in their hands, threatening to kill themselves.


After they party they came and started shooting into the air and people ran halter-skelter for their life.

I was shocked when i heard the sound of gunshot because that would be; my first witnessing that kind of scenario.

But [pro], Alhaji Soladoye Adewole, assuring the students of their protection said; investigations are still going on to unraveling what caused the attack.

He said he never expected such to happen as we all know that yesterday was for matriculation ceremony and the school is; open for all.

The school security and the police are working tirelessly to fish out those cultists; who have done the evil and we will make sure that the right punishment is; given to them.

I urge all students to stay alert and be; ready to report anything to the right quarters and fight against environment.
