The management of Delta Polytechnic, Ozoro , has banned the use of face caps by students on campus .
The rector of the polytechnic, Prof . Job Akpodiete, gave this order at the weekend shortly after the burning of more than 5 , 000 faze caps seized from students .
Akpodiete, represented by the Dean of Student Affairs , Mr . Thomas Ojuye , said the move was to check the incidence of indecent dressing among students on campus .
“The management of the polytechnic came up with an advice to students to dress in a manner that is acceptable to the institution and the public .
“ Sequel to the directive by the school management , the use of all manner of caps by students on campus has been proscribed , ” he said .
The rector said that the polytechnic’ s security unit had been authorised as a matter of importance to destroy seized caps henceforth .
The polytechnic, he said , had, over the years , witnessed relative peace and cult – free academic environment .
Akpodiete described the feat as a product of conscientious and proactive measures put in place by the management of the institution.
In his remark , the polytechnic’ s Chief Security Officer, Mr . Simeon Eduke , described Ozoro Polytechnic as one of the most peaceful institutions in Nigeria .
He said the destruction of the seized face caps was to serve as a deterrence to incoming students of the polytechnic.
