The polytechnic Rector, Abdullahi Hassan, disclosed this in a statement on Wednesday in Lafia, the state capital.

He said the students, who were both regular and part-timers, were expelled on the recommendation and approval of the Academic Board of the institution.

He said: “The decision to expel the students was reached and taken after a thorough investigation at the special meeting of the board held on Wednesday, September 25, 2019, at the polytechnic.

“The expelled students are, therefore, required to handover all polytechnic property in their possession, including identity card to their Head of Departments and Units with immediate effect.”

Abdullahi assured that his administration would not rest on its oars until examination malpractice and other corrupt practices were eliminated in the institution.
