Following rumours of an alleged breach of peace in the campuses of the Kwara State Polytechnic, the management of the institution has clarified that there is no civil unrest or students riot in any of its campuses in Ilorin.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, the Deputy Registrar, Information and Publication of the institution, Ajibola S. Jimoh maintained that there was peace in and around both campuses of the institution.
The statement read in part, “It suffices to clarify that a major electricity spark, occurred yesterday (Tuesday) in one of the cafes located directly opposite the gate of the main campus, which made people who were around the place to scamper for safety.
“The electricity fault that caused the spark was later repaired by the owner of the cafe and normalcy has since been restored in the area, but did not happen on the campus.”
He further maintained that examinations are currently ongoing in the two campuses and encouraged members of the public and the students to go about their normal businesses.
