ASUU reacts to Plateau University attack
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has reacted to the attack by gunmen at the Plateau State University in Bokkos Local Government Area of the State.
WITHIN NIGERIA had earlier reported that students of the Plateau State University, Bokkos, have stormed the institution to stage a peaceful protest after four female students were raped on Monday night.
However, their operation was foiled by the joint intervention from the officers of Operation Safe Haven, Operation Rainbow, Nigeria Police, University Security and Community Watch Group.
Speaking on the incident, the ASUU chairman in the university, Dr Bentse Pamson condemned the attack.
He called for more security around the institution even as he expressed concern over the threat to the lives of students.
“This issue of insecurity in the institution is what we agitated for in our Memorandum of Action with the state government about two months ago.
“It’s unfortunate that nothing from the MOA signed between ASUU and the government has been implemented,’’ he said.
Pamson expressing concern over the threat to the lives and property of members of staff and students of the institution urged the government to take more drastic measures to safeguard the institution.
