According to a report by SaharaReporters, the authorities of the University of Jos, Plateau State have engaged the services of local hunters to protect students on campus and their hostels following the security challenges ravaging the country.
The outgoing Vice-Chancellor of the university, Sebastian Maimako, disclosed this on Tuesday during the valedictory session to mark the end of his five-year tenure.
He said, “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.
“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.
“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.”
According to Maimako, his collaboration with various security experts led to a significant drop in crime in the university.
He also said the institution, under his leadership, recorded tremendous achievements in other areas under the period of five years when he served as Vice-Chancellor.
He said his administration, during the period under review, initiated and completed 85 projects which have been inaugurated.
