8 Alleged Cultists of Rufus Giwa Polytechnic Nabbed by Ondo State Police

The Ondo Sate Police have arrested eight students of the Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, Owo, Ondo State for allegedly belonging to a cult group.

Officers of the State Anti-Robbery Squad arrested the students following an attack on the institution on Friday. The police seized them at their hideout, following intelligence provided to them.

Some students said the cult members, armed with different kinds of weapons, attempted to enter the main campus of the polytechnic, opposite Ikare-Owo-Akure Expressway, but the institution’s security officials prevented them.

Unable to enter the university, the cultists took over the expressway and started shooting sporadically into the campus, witnesses said.
