“The polytechnic does not condone the activities of any anti-social group. Membership in cult groups is forbidden and offenders will be promptly expelled and handed over to security agencies," the rector further warned the fresh and returning students.

“The greatest disservice you can do to us as staff and to your parents/guardians is to engage in activities that may lead to your expulsion from this Institution.

“Therefore, I urge you to resist any temptation to join clandestine groups that promote violence and deviant behaviour.

“Say no to cultism, as it is a path to self-destruction; avoid examination malpractice, and ensure prompt payment of your school fees personally and not through proxies.
