The Management of Gateway ICT Polytechnic, Saapade, has directed all students to vacate their residences and go home over rising cases of insecurity, saying any student who stays behind does so at his own risk.
Press gathered that students of the polytechnic in Saapade and Isara have in recent times become victims of robbery, rape among other security challenges.
The Ogun State Chapter of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), on Tuesday, said it would shut down all schools if the state government fails to take actions.

This, he said was due to the security challenges around the student residences.
The polytechnic disclosed that the ongoing examination would continue after the security situation improves.
