The University of Maiduguri (UNIMAID), has reiterated commitments to ensure the protection and safety of lives and property of students and other cadres of personnel in the school.
The Director, Radio and Public Relations, Prof. Danjuma Gambo, gave the assurance in a statement issued yesterday in Maiduguri that dismissed as unfounded, rumour and uninformed social media reports indicating that eighteen suspected cultists were arrested by the police, who claimed to be students of the university of maiduguri were informants on the payroll of Boko Haram insurgents.
Gambo started that the management of the university had been cooperating with the security agencies and decided not to comment on the incident since the clampdown on the suspected cult group on twenty two of November.
Gambo added that such gargantuan claims, coming shortly after the recent attack in the campus by a persons suspected to be Boko Haram insurgents, are capable of misleading members of the general public, particularly parents, guardians and government institutions into unfounded conclusions about the roles of staff and students in the unfolding insurgency.
The Director further stated that It needs to be clarified since the outbreak of the insurgency in 2009, the university management has never found any credible evidence implicating any of its staff or students as a collaborator or informant in the conflict, as it is being alleged online.
