Oduduwa University Disowns Suspected Cultists Arrested In OAU At Zlatan"s Show

Oduduwa University Disowns Suspected Cultists Arrested In OAU At Zlatan"s Show
The founder of Oduduwa University, Ipetumodu, Dr Abdulrahman Adegoke Adedoyin, has denied the claim that students of the institution were planning to attack the neighbouring Obafemi Awolowo University Ile-Ife, describing it as ridiculous.

Adedoyin said: “The management of the Oduduwa University, Ipetumodu, via Ile Ife is shocked by the claims that our students plan to attack Obafemi Awolowo University, Ife, Osun State (OAU). This claim to say the least is embarrassing, ridiculous and false.

“We make bold to say that those students arrested as cultists in OAU were neither our students nor had any link with OUI. We have gone through the institution’s portal and our records and could not trace their names.

“In view of this, there is no basis to spew publication or harbour any thought that our students are hatching plans to attack Obafemi Awolowo University.”

The educationist went on: “Why is OAU linking us with the challenges it is currently battling with? How can a student/staff population of 5,000 attack a student/staff population of over 60,000 people?

“No serious private university in Nigeria can allow cultism in its school. Nobody enters Oduduwa University without undergoing serious security scrutiny. Uniformed  policemen, plainclothes security men have been stationed at strategic places inside the university to control our security at all times.”

Recall, some suspected cultists were arrested on OAU Campus after Zlatan"s show in May which has created fear in Students & also made many security tactics beefed up by the university management

#WinterInOAU: Tension Doused As Police Nab Notorious Cultists

 The tension that ravaged the campus of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) Ile-Ife, Osun State, for a couple of weeks, over threat of a bloody attack by cultists, has subsided with the arrested of leaders of Vikings Confraternity (VC) of Oduduwa University, Ipetumodu. A gang of cultists, under a pseudonymous “Cultists of Aloha clan” had threatened to invade OAU campus today (Saturday, June 1) “to rain bullets of death, sorrow and grief on innocent students”.

Campus and many students fled while those remained on the campus were apprehensive of their safely. OAU management reacted to the threat in a statement, signed by the Public Relations Officer of the University, Mr Abiodun Olanrewaju, in which he assured that security agencies were on top of the situation.

The issue had been trending online with the hashtag “#WinterInOAU”, putting parents and guardians of the students in fears. A top security operative told Daily Trust that: “There is a strong heat between OAU students and the cultists of Oduduwa university and a threat letter was issued by the cultists, promising to invade OAU premises on 1/6/2019.” However, the tension seemed to have subsided with the arrest of the leader to the dreadful cult gang on Friday by the Anti-Cultism Squad of the Osun State Police Command. A senior police officer told our correspondent that “security networking was utilised by men employed by the Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Ige and they have arrested four leaders of Vikings Confraternity”.

Liverpool To Face Tottenham Today In UEFA Champions League Final

Liverpool will be looking to clinch their sixth Champions League title as they take on the first-time finalists Tottenham Hotspur in an all-English final - a first at the top tier European club competition since 2008 - in the Spanish capital.

Five-time champions Liverpool overcame a 3-0 first-leg deficit to defeat Spanish giant Barcelona 4-3 on aggregate in the semifinals and reach the championship match for the second consecutive year.

"This year we learned a lot," Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said at a press conference on Friday. "We are a completely different side to last year, so the final was not too important for our improvement; the final was like a starting point again for the next steps. That's how we saw it, that's how we wanted to use it, and that's what we did.

Meanwhile, the Spurs' route to its maiden final also saw a dramatic comeback win over Dutch side Ajax 3-3 on away goals.

"The moment you get to the final, it's about winning the final," Tottenham coach Mauricio Pochettino said. "We trust in ourselves."

Madrid is hosting its fifth elite final with the previous four in the city held at Real Madrid's Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.
