DSS, Police Partner Oko Poly On Fight Against Cultism


The Department of State Security (DSS)  and Police in Anambra have expressed their readiness to collaborate with the Federal Polytechnic, Oko, Anambra state in the fight against cultism in the institution.

The leadership of the security agencies made the commitment on Monday in Awka, during separate courtesy visits of the governing council of the polytechnic to the organisations.

The State Commissioner of Police, Garba Umar commended the polythecnic authority over its commitment to zero tolerance for criminality on the campus, especially in the area of cult activities.

He disclosed that out of the 180 students recently arrested in connection with cultism in various campuses across the state, none was from the polythecnic.

"You are not just working for the government as an institution, but you are working for humanity and posterity. I assure you of maximum cooperation and prompt response anytime our assistance is needed." he said.

Also speaking, the State Director, Security Services, Isyaku Yusuf, cautioned the Council to be wary of the host community who take special interest in the institution, as they view it as their own project.

"We see it as a primary duty to provide the campus with conducive atmosphere and environment devoid of any form of insecurity for learning and other academic activities." he added.

Earlier, the Chairman of the governing Council of the polytechnic, Hon. Chief Lasbry Amadi said they were at the offices of the security agencies to seek for cordial and robust synergy between the institution and the security bodies.

He said the campus currently have an anti cult group who have been working tirelessly to ensure zero tolerance for cultism, appealing for its sustainance by the security institutions.
