“You should note that if at any point in time any of you is found to have registered with false certificates or incomplete qualifications, you will be withdrawn from the programme. You need to avoid examination misconduct all through your stay in this University.
“If caught… in any form of examination misconduct, the penalty is outright expulsion. As mature students that you are, we do not expect you to engage in occultic activities.
“We need to warn you that there is no room for cultism in this University, outright expulsion is also the penalty for any student found to belong to a cult, such a student will be handed over to the police for prosecution”, the VC warned.
