Jos—Two students from the departments of Chemistry and Biology in Federal College of Education, Pankshin, Plateau State, have been expelled for being in possession of illegal firearms.

A statement from the College’s management by the its Public Relations Officer, Istifanus Kyakmut, said the students are Peter Daniel from Chemistry Department and Panret Nuhu from Biology Department.

Kyakmut explained that the students were recently convicted and sentenced to prison for illegal possession of locally-fabricated firearms by an Upper Area Court in Kasuwan Nama, Jos and “based on this development, Management of the College had applied the provision of the rules and regulations of the students’ handbook particularly Section 7.1(c), which states that students found with dangerous weapons shall be expelled.”
