The lawmaker sought the government’s intervention to end the persistent security threats against students and workers of the university.

He said: “The sad consequence is that the university is at the serious risk of being unable to promise the serene and conducive atmosphere that is a sine qua non for its purpose as an institution of higher learning.  “We, therefore, vehemently condemn these acts of terrorism in all parts of Kaduna State and the federation and state that this must stop.”
