The Cross River State University of Technology, CRUTECH, has placed a ban on the use of school bags, caps/hats and berets.
The school’s management made the declaration following a rise in the activities of gangsters and cultists.
Among the aforementioned items, the varsity also banned rug sacks, branded shirts, boots – items it tagged as those “appearing to be gangster-related”.
The school also suspended indefinitely two students for cult-related activities.
The students, Arikpo Arikpo Ofem with registration number 14/EGC/078 (Electrical and Electronic Engineering) and Felix Udeme Umoren with registration number 14/CSC/056 (Computer Science) both in level 200 were suspended.
This development is coming after the institution was hit with a wave of gangster-related activities.
According to CrossRiverWatch, the clash was between the Klans confraternity and the Black Axe.
About six security vans were mobilized to the school, patrolling the premises to prevent further damage.
