FCE Zaria arrests 12 suspected cultists, constitutes committee

The Federal College of Education (FCE) Zaria has established a committee to investigate the activities of 12 students suspected to be cultists who were arrested and handed over to the police for more investigation.

Dr. Suleiman Balarabe, the Provost of the College disclosed this in an interview with newsmen during the matriculation ceremony for NCE (Part-Time) for the 2023/2024 academic session.

The Provost said the establishment of the committee was part of the college’s determination to stem the challenge which poses a threat to the college and its neighbourhood

“The committee has seasoned administrators, lecturers, security agencies, religious and traditional leaders,” the Provost said.

He explained that a student made a report to the security division that some students of the college were into cultism and they were trying to initiate him.

He added that the school security embarked on a prompt response and initiated an investigation into the matter to uproot the gang; in the process, 12 students were found to be involved.

“After preliminary investigation at the college, the suspected cultists were handed over to the Criminal Investigation Department of the Kaduna Police Command for more investigation.

“Here in the college, we established a committee to get to the roots of the matter and do away with it.

The Provost, therefore, admonished the matriculating students against any form of display of anti-social behaviors, especially as it concerns examination malpractice, indecent dressing, unlawful associations (cultism), and drug abuse, among others.

He urged them to toe the path of honor both within and outside the college as it enjoys a reputation for producing excellent teachers for the nation.

Adding that, the college breeds fully qualified professional teachers who will later in life help prepare their students not only to learn and pass examinations but to live respectable and acceptable lives in their communities.
