Adamawa Varsity Reopens, Recruits 80 Hunters

The authorities of Adamawa State University, Mubi, have recruited 80 vigilante men and hunters to ensure the security of the university community.
Vice Chancellor of the university, Prof Joshua Shall, disclosed this to newsmen in Mubi on Thursday, just as the institution resumed academic activities.
Shall said the institution was aware of the complementary role played by the vigilance groups and hunters assisting the military to recapture Mubi town after it was overran by insurgents in October 2014, and therefore decided to recruited them to continue with their complementary role.
Shall, who said 95% of the students had resumed classes, stated that the institution lost 11 staff and three students, while property worth N5 billion were destroyed by the insurgents.
“They (insurgents) broke into all offices, staff quarters, hostels, laboratories, stores and looted properties,” he said.
The vice chancellor said the school managed to re-open following the intervention it received from TETFund which supported it with N250 million.
He said TETFund also approved a substantial amount of money for the institution which his management was now trying to access to sustain the ongoing rehabilitation in the university.
While lauding TETFund for the support, Shall also commended the national body of Academic Staff Union of Universities for donating N21 million to its members in the university.
He said the university had also compiled the lists of damages incurred by its staff and submitted same to the Victim Support Fund for possible assistance.
