“The police quick response and intervention was evidently responsible for their arrest.” It added that,”The two suspected students were suspended indefinitely pending the outcome of the police investigation and further findings on the matter.”

The statement however noted that,” Adewusi Vincent who was mentioned along with the two has ceased to be a student of the institution having been withdrawn from the Polytechnic since 2017 for poor performance.”

“The Management wishes to state unequivocally that cases of cultism have been a thing of past in the institution as the new management under Dr. Lateef Ademola Olatunji has purged the institution of all forms of cultism, gangsterism and other anti social vices since he came on board as Rector in 2017.”stressed the statement. ” The Management has been dealing decisively with any student suspected to be involved in cultism or any criminal acts.”added the statement.

It warned that,”Other offences such as examination malpractices, sexual harassment are also gross misconduct at the Polytechnic which attract outright expulsion from the institution. Students found culpable are equally handed over to the Law Enforcement Agents for prosecution.

An Egyptian military court on Tuesday reportedly handed prison terms to 16 alleged anti-coup supporters for criminal offenses.

In a statement, defense committee member Khalid Al-Misri said the northern Cairo court sentenced 16 people to 25 years after convicting them of “attacking public institutions and forming an armed bandit group” between 2013 and 2014 while another two defendants were each handed 15-year jail terms for the same offenses.

In the same case, 37 people were acquitted due to a lack of evidence, according to Misri.

Egypt has remained roiled by turmoil since the army ousted and imprisoned Mohamed Morsi, the country’s first freely elected president, in a 2013 military coup.

Since then, hundreds of people have been sentenced to death or lengthy prison terms after being convicted of acts of violence.
