Why police have not arrested six FUTA students who molested and abused a fellow student

The Ondo state police command says it will only arrest six students of the Federal University of Technology,Akure (FUTA) who molested and abused a fellow student if the incident is reported at the police station.

The spokesperson of the command, Femi Joseph told The News Track in a telephone interview that the affected student must first report the case to the police before necessary action will be taken.

According to him, the students action is not only barbaric but highly inhuman. 

Joseph said ‘The police can only arrest the students involved if the case is reported at the police station

“Once the case is reported, we will go after the students and arrest them with immediate alacrity”

Recall that FUTA management had placed six students of the institution on indefinite suspension.

Their suspension followed the  result of a preliminary investigation carried out by the management.

The affected students are listed below
1. Popoola Olaniyi Agboola IDD/ (300L)

2. Oluwadare Faith Tobiloba FST ( 200L).3. Nandi Yohanna Jessica IPE/ ( 200L)

4. Ajuwon Tolani Emmanuella FAT/ (100L)

5. Emmanuel Funmilayo Taiwo FAT/ (100L)

6. Alao Olabimpe Cecilia CSP/ 100 L

As a consequence of their suspension they are precluded from all academic and related activities indefinitely and barred from the University and its precincts forthwith.

At the conclusion of the ongoing investigations the full weight of the law of the University ,as contained in the handbooks and oath of Matriculation which all students are made to sign and subscribe to, will be visited on those found culpable.

A statement issued by the Deputy Director, Corporate Communications, FUTA,  Adegbenro Adebanjo said the university would not tolerate any form of indiscipline
