Alleged cultism: Ilaro Polytechnic SUG President granted bail

   

   

The Students’ Union President of the Federal Polytechnic, Ilaro, Ogun State, Adegboye Olatunji, who was arrested for alleged involvement in cultism, has been granted bail.

   


   
Dailypost reports that Olatunji was granted bail by a Magistrate Court sitting in Ifo area of Ogun State on Monday.

The SUG President was arrested last week, allegedly inside a bush at Gbogidi area of Ilaro, when new intakes were being initiated.

On Sunday, the Southwest Zone of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) threatened to embark on a statewide protest if Olatunji was not charged to court by the police.
   

   
NANS alleged that the police and the management of the polytechnic were making efforts to tarnish the image of the SUG President.

In a swift reaction, the Ogun Police Command warned the students not to embark on the planned protest as anybody caught would face the full weight of the law.

Meanwhile, Olatunji was docked yesterday by the police on three-count charge.
   

   
He was, however, granted bail in the sum of N200,000, with two sureties in like sum as the case was adjourned till February 20.

Speaking on the issue, the Special Assistant to Governor Dapo Abiodun on Students Matters, Azeez Adeyemi, said the State Government waded into the matter to forestall breakdown of law and order.

Adeyemi, who also doubles as NANS National Public Relations Officer, said he met with the police and the students to resolve the matter amicably. Dailypost
