Lasting solution may have been found to the the incessant cult clashes and killings in Kogi State owned state institutions as over 200 members of confraternity groups at Kogi State University (KSU) are set to renounce their members and turn a new leaf.
This was disclosed through a circulated memo signed by the institution’s Registrar, Dr. Yaqub Mohammed on behalf of school management on Monday in Anyigba.
Dr Mohammed said Friday, 28 of February has been fixed for repentant cult members including staffs and students to publicly renounce membership of any fraternities they belong to.
He notified that the event was part of the Institution’s plan to stamp out cultism and ensure peace and security on the campus.
Dr. Yakub stated that staffs and students of the institution who are involved in any cult activity should take advantage of the opportunity to turn a new leaf warning that subsequent involvement would attract the full wrath of the law.
The event is scheduled to hold by 10am at the University’s auditorium as members of the university community were advised to be in attendance
The day has also been declared lecture free.
Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State had earlier directed heads of tertiary institutions in the state to put an end to the menace of cultism in their respective institutions or risk being removed.
This current move by the management of KSU was one among others which have contributed significantly to the reduction in deadly cult clashes in recent times within the school.
