FUGUS disclaims alleged attack on the school
The Federal University Gusau wishes to inform the general public that the story going round in the social media that bandits have raided the University campus located along Gusau – Funtua Road yesterday Thursday, 4th March, 2021 is not true in its totality.
The incident might have occurred as a result of panic by the students arising from the kidnap of the GGSS Jangebe girls and other related issues of insecurity in the state when the students sighted some Fulani men returning from a Ceremony. Students got frightened and scampered for safety.
The University, therefore, condemns in totality how people are eager to circulate news without making any effort for its authentication from the concerned authorities. The Management also cautions staff and students against forwarding social media messages as received without proper scrutiny.
The general public is therefore advised to disregard the story as it is totally untrue and misleading. The University since its establishment in 2013 has never recorded any security threat.
Staff and students are also urged to remain calm and continue with their normal activities.
