'They're not our students,' Kwara Poly denies suspects arrested for killing club owner

The management of Kwara State Polytechnic, has disowned two suspects, Adama Joseph and Oreoluwa Davies, who were paraded by the Nigeria Police for allegedly killing a club owner, Adeniyi Ojo, in a hotel in Ilorin, the state capital.

In a statement by the institution’s Public Relations Officer, Halimat Garba, on Thursday, the registrar said the suspects are not students of the polytechnic.

“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,” the statement said.

“The Polytechnic management wishes to state categorically that its students are good ambassadors of the Polytechnic, the state, and Nigeria at large and will never indulge in such acts.”

The institution noted that the suspects’ claim that they were schooled at the polytechnic is untrue, baseless, and a figment of their imagination, noting that the claim was intended to drag the name of the ever-peaceful institution into the mud.

The registrar further urged all Polytechnic stakeholders and press members to verify anything tagged with the institution before circulating it.

Recall that during the interrogation on Wednesday at the Force Headquarters in Abuja, Adama had said the victim had been demanding a sexual relationship with her for some time. Still, she refused because she was working under him at some point, and when she quit the job, he failed to meet her financial needs whenever she requested. Oreoluwa also agreed with Adama’s narration of the event.

She also claimed to have finished her ND programme at Kwara Polytechnic before the incident happened.
