The management of Kogi State Polytechnic says it has expelled 150 students for various offences ranging from cultism, result forgery to exam malpractices.

Rector of Kogi Polytechnic, Dr Salisu Usman Ogbo disclosed this on Saturday at the 28th matriculation ceremony of the institution.

” You should be informed that the Polytechnic under my watch has zero-tolerance for all forms of social vices such as cultism, gun-running, examination malpractices, drug abuse, divisive tendencies, cyber crimes, incitement, violence, gangsterism, misuse and destruction of school properties, stealing and indecent dressing.
