Go Home: Ogun Poly Send Students Packing Over Insecurity

The management of Gateway (ICT) Polytechnic Saapade, has ordered students of the institution to immediately relocate back home due to the rising cases of insecurity while warning that any student who stays behind bears the risk.

The institution’s management was forced to give this directive, after the recent robbery and rape attacks on students of the polytechnic in Sapaade and Isara.

The polytechnic Registrar, Julius O. popoola in an internal memo signed,  ordered all students to proceed on a mid-semester break, with effect from the close of work on Wednesday, April 28, citing security challenges around the students’ residence.

The polytechnic also informed that the ongoing examination would continue after the security challenges improve.

The memo reads: “In line with the decision of the management, all students are to proceed on a mid-semester break with effect from close of work on Wednesday, 28th of April, 2021.

“This is due to the security challenges around the students’ residences. Please note that the ongoing examination shall continue immediately the security situation improves.

“Meanwhile, all students shall vacate their residencies and go home. Any student that stays behind does so at his or her own risk.

In a related development, the Ogun State Chapter of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), on Tuesday, said it would shut down all schools if the state government fails to address the security situation in the state.

It would be recalled that students in Ogun State recently raised alarm over the abduction and killing of students in different parts of the country, expressing fear that the ugly trend might spread to Ogun State, especially after the abduction of two female students of Olabisi Onabanjo University (OOU), Ayetoro campus.
