Bomb threat: Why we beefed up security – UI

The management of the University of Ibadan on
Wednesday said it had no intention to make life
unbearable for the university community
through the recent screening exercise
introduced at the institution’s gates.

The university’s Director of Communication, Mr
Olatunji Oladejo, told newsmen in Ibadan that
the measure was in response to the threat by an
unknown group to launch bomb attacks on its
campus.

Security personnel were stationed at the
entrance of the university and were searching
students and visitors entering the institution.

Oladejo, who said the university was not taking
the threat for granted, added that this informed
the security beef up in and around the
university.

He said that the campus security service had
been complementing the efforts of other
security agencies in ensuring security on the
campus.

“ What we are trying to do is to avert any
unpleasant situation in the university,’’ he said.
Some of the students, who spoke with newsmen,
said although they were apprehensive about the
situation, there was nothing they could do but
resort to divine intervention.
