The Federal University of Lokoja in Kogi (FULOKOJA) has employed 60 local hunters nearby to help fight insecurity challenges faced by the school.
The vice-chancellor of the university, Professor Olayemi Akinwumi, revealed this in a press conference on Monday to commemorate the beginning of the school’s fifth convocation ceremony, which began on Monday.
Akinwumi said this was motivated by the abduction of university staff in parts of the country.
He added that until the agency is satisfied with the safety of its premises, students will not be allowed to enter the hostel.
In his words:
“The management of this institution will not toy with the security of students and staff of the university. We have seen what happened just recently in some tertiary institutions in the country where professors and their children were kidnapped on the campuses.
“We have engaged over 60 hunters and they have mapped out areas where criminals can use as an escape route and we will block those areas. Until we are satisfied with the security here in the permanent site of the university, we will not move students to the hostels for now,” he said.
The VC further explained that the hunters will complement the efforts of the police and Nigeria’s security and civil defense forces, while providing adequate security for the school’s faculty and students.
