The management of Veritas University in Bwari area council, Abuja, has denied rumours that its school has been shut to avert armed bandits’ attack.
A social media post on Wednesday morning, claimed that, “about 800 Fulani men rode on horse approaching’ Bwari Area Council FCT, Abuja.”
But their mission could not be ascertained at the time residents of the town were alerted.
The post urged the public to take necessary precaution.
But in a chat with PRNigeria, a source in the private university, said their school was not shut to avert an impending attack by the alleged fulani men.
According to him, the last academic session of the university ended on Monday, hence both staff and students proceeded on vacation.
Meanwhile, a joint security task force in FCT has intensifies patrols and intelligence surveillance as pre-emptive measures against any eventuality.
The joint security chaired by FCT Police Commissioner, Mr. Bala Ciroma comprises intelligence and paramilitary agencies.
