The Commissioner of Police, Haliru Gwandu, who disclosed this to journalists in Benin, on Monday, added that several firearms were recovered from the arrested academics.
Gwandu also said that among those arrested was a professor, from whom a double-barrelled gun, single-barrelled gun and one pump action gun were allegedly recovered. “The professor was arrested. He was granted bail. The case is under investigation,” he said.
The commissioner expressed displeasure over the high rate of cultism around the institution located in Esan West LGA, which he said had claimed many lives.
