3 students renounce cultism in Ojukwu varsity

Three students of the Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University (COOU), formerly known as Anambra State University, at the weekend renounced their membership of a secret cult.
The students (name with­held), who confessed to be members of Black Axe Confra­ternity, made the decision to leave the group known during a church programme as part of activities that marked the 17th matriculation ceremony of the university.
Vice Chancellor of the Uni­versity, Prof. Fidelis U. Okafor, who charged the ex-cultists and others to always shun cultism, said the image of the institution has greatly improved and can­not be compromised through deviant behaviours of few mis­creants.
Expressing happiness dur­ing the prayer sessions, the VC commended the courage of the three students and urged them to seek the assistance clergy­men even as he warned that the school would not treat the issue of cultism with kid gloves.
“I thank God for the cour­age of this three cult members which availed themselves of this opportunity to renounce their membership. After this, our se­curity network will clamp down on cultists and cult activities and if you are caught, you will have yourself to blame.
“We have given you opportu­nity to come out of this deadly society and join recognized and registered religious societies that will help you be a better mem­ber of the society here and after your graduation,” Okafor said.
The Vice Chancellor said that the university has shown itself as a centre of excellence by laurels won in recent local and inter­national competitions, saying that COOU has been ranked second to the University of Be­nin by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) as one of the institutions that strictly complied with admis­sion guidelines.
