Kogi Poly’s rector condemns soldiers’ constant harassment of female students on campus.
The Rector of Kogi State Polytechnic, Dr. Salisu Ogbo Usman has called on the Kogi State Military Authority to warn their personnel who are fond of instigating trouble in the night at the main campus of the Polytechnic in Lokoja.
He made the appeal while speaking at the 30th matriculation ceremony of the school in Lokoja on Friday, February 10. According to Usman, the military personnel, on several occasions, had visited the campus with the aim of carrying girls but always end up causing a lot of trouble for the Polytechnic community.
He explained that the supposed security personnel were turning themselves into security threats, citing a particular night when an unidentified military man went to the Polytechnic and attacked the security guards at work because the guard demanded to search him.
He pointed out that another military personnel went to the campus to beat up a female student for no reason, noting that the harassment at the Polytechnic was becoming unbearable.
He, therefore, admonished the Commander of Command of Army Records in Lokoja to warn those coming to the Polytechnic community to always obey the laws and other rules and regulations of entering and going out of the campus to avoid undue altercations.
