Daily Trust - - EDUCATION - From Emma Elekwa, Awka

Au­thor­i­ties of Chuk­wue­meka Odumegwu Ojukwu Univer­sity (COOU), Ig­bariam, have given the stu­dents 14-days ul­ti­ma­tum to re­nounce their cult mem­ber­ship or face ex­pul­sion from the in­sti­tu­tion after 820 cultists re­nounced their mem­ber­ship.

The Vice Chan­cel­lor of the univer­sity, Prof Fidelis Okafor, who dis­closed this to news­men, said about 820 cultists have will­ingly re­nounced their cult mem­ber­ship, adding that over 510 cultists re­nounced their mem­ber­ship un­der his watch, aside oth­ers who re­nounced in dif­fer­ent fora.

He said that re-ver­i­fi­ca­tion to fish out cultists is on­go­ing as the in­sti­tu­tion would no longer tol­er­ate any cult re­lated acts.

He fur­ther said they were mo­bi­liz­ing the se­cu­rity agen­cies to fore­stall fur­ther blood­let­ting in the cam­pus in any guise as he is de­ter­mined to san­i­tize the univer­sity, adding that the Anti-cult group has been briefed to be at alert 24/7.
