Insecurity: UniAbuja begins 24hrs security patrol, employs hunters

Mohammed Ahmed Modibbo, Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of the University of Abuja (UniAbuja) Governing Council, on Sunday announced that the institution has commenced a 24-hour security patrol to ensure the safety of staff and students of the school.

Modibbo, who spoke at an event, said the institution has engaged the services of hunters and vigilantes to boost its security following the abduction of some staff and family members by bandits.

He further said that the governing council is also working out a plan to ensure decent accommodation for staff through the involvement of investors and other relevant bodies.

Modibbo also advocated innovative ways of enhancing additional funding for the institutions and said UniAbuja was making efforts to also partner with several international organisations and foreign universities on alternative funding for the university.

Speaking on sexual harassment in the university system, Modibbo warned that those found culpable would henceforth be sanctioned accordingly.

He stated that over 10 cases of such had been transferred to the university’s disciplinary committee and persons found guilty would be brought to book.

There are procedures that have to, first of all, be established, investigated, reported to the council and the council passed to the disciplinary committee,” he said.

He, therefore, assured that there will be changes in the way things are approached in the university.
