VC of Ojukwu University To Go Hard on Cultism

Management of Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University, COOU in Anambra State, have made it known to the students of University the need to guard against cult groups and cultism on campus, warning that any student caught would be rusticated and handed over to the Nigerian Police for prosecution, as directed by the FG of Nigeria.

Prof. Okafor said: “Woe unto the student that will be discovered to be a cultist in this university. If anybody approaches you to join a secret cult, do not hesitate to make a report to the security department of the university, or to the Dean of Students Affairs, or to any priest on campus. The image of this university has greatly improved in the eyes of the public and cannot, therefore, be compromised through deviant behaviour of a few miscreants”.
