Insecurity: UNIJOS Employs Hunters To Guard Campus, Hostels

In a bid to curb insecurity in schools across the country, it has been reported that the management of the University of Jos have engaged the services of local hunters to protect students on campus and their hostels.

This was reportedly disclosed by the outgoing Vice-Chancellor of the university, Prof. Sebastian Maimako, on Tuesday.

According to him, “It is no longer news that the security situation in the country is quite tenuous. This is why under my administration, we made frantic efforts to ensure that all lives and property within the university are adequately protected.”

He added that, “When we got a security report that we were the soft target, we close our hostels for almost two weeks and suspended lectures eventually. Before we could reopen, we were given a condition that we must employ the services of local hunters to help us secure our hostels, particularly at night.”

The Vice Chancellor disclosed that, “Today, this is where we are, but thank God, the Director of Peace and Conflict Studies, looking at the happening, has offered to train these hunters on the rule of engagement in their working in the university.”
