"We Will Bomb University Of Ibadan Before Independence Day" – Terrorists

University Of Ibadan

www.Physinews.com: There was tension in the University of Ibadan
on Friday as a threatening message that
purportedly emanated from a group, al-wilayat
al-Islamiyya Gharb Afriqiyyah, was circulated
among some staff of the institution and on
social media platforms.

According to the message, the group
threatened to bomb the school before
Independence Day on October 1, 2016, saying
that students and staff were their targets.

When contacted, The Director of
Communication, UI, Olatunji Oladejo, dismissed
the threat, saying it was the handiwork of
mischievous individuals who wanted to cause
commotion in the school.

Our correspondent gathered that while some
lecturers got the mail through their institutional
e-mail addresses, others were copied through
social platforms such as Whatsapp.
In the mail, the group described the university
as an embarrassment to Nigeria for bringing
western education.

It was observed that security arrangement was
strengthened at the school gates with scanning
devices deployed while stop and search was
conducted on everyone entering the school,
leading to a gridlock.

The letter read in part, “You people are an
embarrassment to Nigeria and are the people
that brought in western education to Nigeria.

You doomed this nation and in turn you all are
going to be doomed. Most of you are going to
die before Independence Day. You will not
spend the Independence Day in peace, you and
your students.

“Detonation will start going from tomorrow till
Independence Day and there is nothing you can
do as we are among you. Even your little
searches at the gate won’t do anything. By the
time we are through with you, your government
will be sorry.”

Speaking on the alleged threat, Oladejo said like
others, he also received the letter, while saying
that it had not affected the peace of the school.

He said, “I also got it. Anyone could instigate
such thing. Some people could be mischievous.

Our international students are having their
carnival on the campus and everywhere is
peaceful. I attribute it to the handiwork of
mischievous individuals and vehemently deny
any commotion.”

Police Public Relations Officer of the state
police command, Adekunle Ajisebutu, told our
correspondent that the command had received
information on the threat to lives and property
on the campus and had responded
He said, “We have received the information.

The state Commissioner of Police, Samuel
Adegbuyi, working in concert with the other
security agencies, has put in place all
necessary security arrangement to forestall
such an ugly incident.

“We have deployed our intelligence officers to
provide adequate security in the school. As it
is, it is still a rumour but we don’t want to take
things for granted and because of this, we have
provided adequate security, not only for the
school, but for the people of the state.

“We enjoin members of the public to go about
their lawful businesses and to be law-abiding.”
