The university’s Director of Communication, Mr. Jerry Amah while confirming this to newsmen said that the suspension of academic activities in the school is necessary considering the present situation.
According to Mr. Jerry Amah, “some of our students and staff are inside Wukari town and they may not be able to come to school because of the curfew.”
“Individuals who were displaced by the crisis have taken over the university facilities and there is no way we can send them out of this place. It is also not possible for the university to allow the students to mingle with the refugees on campus for security reasons,” he emphasized.
