Ede Poly Management Calls for Calm Over Killing Of Graduating Student

By Deborah Oladejo, Osogbo
The management of the Federal Polytechnic, Ede, Osun State, has called on members of the Polytechnic community to remain calm following the killing of a graduating student of the institution by a suspected cultist.
This was contained in a statement signed by the Protocol, Media and Public Relations Officer of the Polytechnic,  Sola Lawal,  on Saturday in Osogbo.
It would be recalled that a Higher National Diploma (HND) graduate of Banking and Finance of the institution, Hassan Adedeji, awaiting his National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) call-up letter was killed on Wednesday alongside a motorcyclist by a suspected cultist.
The incident led to protest by students of the institution demanding for the arrest of the suspected killer.
The statement enjoined students and other stakeholders in the Polytechnic to cooperate with the management of the institution, in order to nip such occurrences in the bud in the future.
“The management of Federal Polytechnic Ede, led by the Rector, Dr John Adekolawole, with solid backing of Air Cdre Emmanuel Jekada (rtd), led governing council, greatly regrets the unfortunate incident of Wednesday, in which a graduating student of the Polytechnic lost his life.
“We sympathises with the family of the deceased, may God give them the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
“In the meantime, management has suspended the ongoing Rector’s Cup as a mark of respect for the deceased.
“While the management is confident of the capacity of security agencies to bring the perpetrators of this heinous act to book, it also advises the Polytechnic community to be calm and go about their businesses peacefully without fear of any threat.
“As peace returned to the Polytechnic community, the management strongly warns any rumour monger to stay clear, in order not to incur the wrath of the law,” the statement said.
