Abiodun Alamutu, Commissioner of Police in Ogun, on Saturday expressed worry over the frequent cult clashes which had claimed lives in the state.
Alamutu, represented by Assistant Commissioner of Police in charge of Operations, Fergus Manger, said this while addressing students during the matriculation of Harvarde College of Science, Business and Management, Obada-Oko, Abeokuta.
According to him, the youths who are said to be the next generation of leaders are rather killing themselves and ruining their destiny.
Alamutu, who said that the situation really called for concerns, urged the students to focus on their studies and shun any form of temptation to join this evil group.
“It is unfortunate the rate of cult killings in the state and those involved are the youth, those of you who are expected to be the next generation of leaders.
” You have to stay away from joining confraternities because it is not a group that you can join and want to leave, no, they won’t allow you, rather they will come after you because they know that you have their secret.

“You are here to study and this you must do to your utmost best so that you can grow up and be the very best in the society, which is the reason why your parents sent you to this school,” he said.
Earlier, the Vice Chancellor of Abia State University, Prof. Onyemachi Ogbulu, said that the institution is an affiliate of the university.
Ogbulu, represented by Prof. John Ogbonna, Director, Institute for Continuing Education of the university, warned the students to either be ready to conform with the rules of the school or be shown the way out.
“This matriculation marks your formal admission into university as bonafide students. You must therefore face your studies, stay away from every form of distraction.
“The university won’t waste time to show you the exit if you will not conform to the university’s standards,” he said.
The President of the college, Dr Adebayo Oluwatosin, also urged the the matriculating students to brace up for the academic challenge ahead, saying the school would not condone any act of lawlessness and unseriousness.
