The Kwara State Polytechnic has disowned the two suspects, Vandora Favour Oreoluwa Davies and Joseph Joy Adama, who were paraded for the murder of a club owner, Adeniyi Ojo, in a hotel situated in Ilorin, Kwara State.
While being paraded on Wednesday, Oct. 11, at the Force Headquarters in Abuja, Adama claimed to have completed her ND program at Kwara Polytechnic prior to the murder of Ojo (read here).
Reacting to the claim in a statement by its Public Relations Officer, Halimat Garba, on Thursday, Oct. 12, the institution stated that its students are good ambassadors of Nigeria, and that they aren’t students.
The statement reads:
“The management wishes to disclaim this discrediting and malicious news about the institution, stating that the suspects being paraded in Abuja by the force PRO, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, are students of Kwara State Polytechnic.
“Our database check showed that the two ladies had since been withdrawn from the school after their first years on account of poor academic performances. They have, therefore, ceased being students of our great institution.
The polytechnic management states categorically that its students are good ambassadors of the institution, the state, and Nigeria at large, and will not be involved in shameful or criminal acts of any kind.”
The deceased, 52, is the son of a very popular and wealthy socialite, Chief Emmanuel Ọjọ, who owns a fleet of expensive hotels in the state.
The late Adeniyi Ojo, it was further learnt, was an associate pastor in one of the Winners Chapel branches in Ilọrin. His first daughter also recently graduated as a medical doctor from the University of Ilọrin.
He was said to have preached to the congregation about four Sundays ago where he said he was initially against his father’s decision to relocate to Nigeria from one of the African countries.
