The Lagos State Polytechnic, Ikorodu during the week said it would punish any of its non-teaching staff involved in the molestation of two officials of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on the institution’s campus, as claimed by the board.
The institution’s spokesman, Mr. Olanrewaju Kuye, disclosed in Lagos that LASPOTECH and the Lagos State Government were already addressing the issue, while the police had begun investigation into the matter.
Recall that JAMB had alleged that two of its officials were nearly set ablaze at LASPOTECH. The Registrar of JAMB said the officials were attacked at the centre of the mock examination in the institution, and would have been set ablaze, but for a quick intervention that saved them from the attempted jungle justice.
Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, Registrar of JAMB, made this known when the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, visited some CBT centres in Abuja during the mock examination.
He said the reason for the dastardly attack is yet to be ascertained, even as the two officials had been taken to the hospital.
Kuye, while confirming that the polytechnic’s authorities were aware of the incident, apologized to the examination board and assured the Registrar that the perpetrators would be brought to book.
