UNIAbuja comes under new attacks as armed thieves, cultists torment lecturers and students * Many flee – Blueprint Newspapers Limited


The University of Abuja located around the Gwagwalada Regional Council of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) suffered another attack on Wednesday, the day after the higher education institution was invaded by bandits and the abduction of teachers and children.

Terrorists disguised as bandits opened fire on Tuesday morning at the school staff’s premises before finally escaping with six people.

But on Wednesday, a student who did not reveal her identity said Plan that unknown persons with a vehicle suspected of being stolen with weapons entered the school, harnessed students to the entrance and collected their belongings in the afternoon.

According to the student, “they always walked into an office and attacked a professor, Professor David Okoroafor, from the economics department. The lecturer teaches mathematics in the department.

“They attempted to retrieve the teacher’s phone and other personal belongings before the students who had seen them earlier sounded the alarm, and then school security officers chased them.

“Due to fear and anxiety, the conference already scheduled in our class was postponed Wednesday because the instructor called to tell us that he would no longer be in class.

“By the time we left, others were already leaving the school premises.”

Another student who also chose to keep a low profile alleged that students living in and outside the school are now leaving out of fear.

He said cultists are now attacking students and anyone on sight at will.

“Cultists harass people mainly at night in the Bob H neighborhood behind the Gwagwalada boys’ hostel.

“In the past three weeks, unidentified gunmen have terrorized a women’s shelter near the school. They recover their phones and other personal effects without dispute, ”said the student.

The police command assured Tuesday that it was ready to provide adequate care to people living in the region.
