Alabi told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that effective security measures would guarantee the safety of residents in the university community.
He said that the university management itself has a role to play in ensuring the safety of life and property of those within the university grounds. He called for the introduction of stringent security measures in a bid to guarantee safety.
These efforts would be complemented by the availability of well-trained security personnel and police officers and would also engender a feeling of peace in the nation’s higher institutions.
“We must be security conscious and be ready to deal with any unforeseen circumstances before us.
The dawn attack on a mosque at the University of Maiduguri (UNIMAID) by a seven-year-old suicide bomber can be avoided in the future if measures against it are put in place.
