CP Denies Attack On UNIMAID, Says Terrorists Only Passed By University

The Police Command in Borno Denies Attack On UNIMAID, Says Terrorists Only Passed behind the University

The Police Command in Borno on Friday denied reports of suspected Boko Haram insurgents attack on the University of Maiduguri (UNIMAID) campus.

The Commissioner of Police, Alhaji Lawal Tanko, made the denial in an interview in Maiduguri.

“The story indicating that the university had been attack is not true.

“What happened was that the insurgents passed through a river channel behind the university to launch the attack on the barracks,” he said.

Tanko said that the university campus was safe as both students and lecturers had been adequately protected.

He, however, confirmed an attempted attack on the Giwa Barracks, Maiduguri, by suspected members of the sect.

“It is true that there is an ongoing exchange of fire between security agents and some suspected insurgents, but the incident is limited to the barracks area alone,” he said.

Also, Malam Ahmed Mohammed, the Chief Information Officer of the university, who spoke, corroborated the claim of the commissioner.

“The university camp was not attacked, the attackers only used a narrow river side near the campus to carry out their nefarious act.

“Many people assumed that the university was affected because the hostilities took place near the campus,” Mohammed said. (NAN)
