Metro Bomb Attack: University of Maiduguri Will Remain Open to Frustrate Boko Haram- VC



Authorities will keep the University of Maiduguri open despite being attacked by a Boko Haram suicide bomber in the early hours of today.

The bomb attack killed a professor and four other people.

The varsity's VC, Prof. Abubakar Njodi, said:

"I can convince the senate, the management and the university community to close the school and save lives.

"But if we do that, we are not helping because we have to give the security our maximum support and our support is not to join them in the battle field.

"If we run away, that means there is nobody they should be fighting for. We should stay and resolve it, after all the war is about us, western education.

"If we stay, the terrorists will be frustrated because that is their aim.

"What is the point of fighting for us if we run? We should stand our ground so that the military will be proud that the people they are fighting for are on ground.

"Therefore, our decision is not to close the university. We want to assure you our theatre commander, the university remains open and we will continue with our examinations tomorrow.

"We suspended the exams for today because we want the military to come and access what happened."
