The Principal Assistant Registrar (Academic), Mr. Ahmed Yahaya, said in a statement that the suspension followed a report received from Oke-Oyi Divisional Police Headquarters.

One of the students, with registration number ND/12/PA/PT/610, was arrested for alleged unlawful possession of two live cartridges. Two others with registration numbers ND/13/COM/FT/394 and ND/14/COM/FT/843 were nabbed by the police for alleged membership of an unlawful society.

The statement said a female student among the suspended students, with registration number ND13/PS/FT/903, was accused of unlawful possession of knife and charm.

It said the suspension was in line with the polytechnic’s practice to suspend any student under investigation, pending the outcome of the investigation by the police.
