The Police in Lagos state have arrested two students of the University of Lagos for allegedly attacking the Vice Chancellor with a view to disrupting the convocation week.

The Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, who confirmed the arrest to journalists on Tuesday, said the leader of the group, who planned the alleged attack, was also arrested.

He said that some officers had been drafted to the institution to ensure that the convocation week went without any hitch.

He warned trouble makers to keep off the school.

In a related development, three secondary school students were arrested in Ikoyi for alleged involvement in cult activities and for disrupting public peace.

Mr. Owoseni said the students were arrested with dangerous weapons such as dagger, axe, cutlasses and iron rods which they allegedly used to disrupt public peace.

He said the three students were among 10 students picked up from the school (name withheld) during a supremacy clash between two cult groups over girl friend related matter.

“We have invited the parents of the three students for discussion.

“Although they are minors, the three students will be prosecuted because they were found with dangerous weapons.

“They will face the same law adult accused of similar crime face while the remaining students and their parents will be counselled by the police,” Mr. Owoseni said.
