Boko Haram threatens to bomb UI and other universities.

University of Ibadan

According to, the authorities of the University of Ibadan have confirmed the threat by members suspected to be of the Boko Haram sect that they are going to bomb the university between 12 and 17 September and this has led to panic among staff and students of the institution as there was heavy security presence at the main entrance to the university, opposite Agbowo Shopping Complex this morning. The Acting Vice Chancellor of the university, Prof. Elijah Afolabi Bamigboye confirmed the rumour thus “We heard rumours that a group which detests education is likely to descend on institutions where education is being imparted. We heard that U.I is top on the list. When we heard the rumour of  the threat to bomb U.I, we did not want to take chances. We’ve heard of experiences in the past, especially the recent bombing of the UN house in Abuja as well as the Force headquarters which left several people dead”.

This is very unpleasant! And our government is just going to do nothing about this menace? Oh God please come to Nigeria’s rescue o in Jesus’ name!
