The Area Commander, Bosso Police Command, ACP Ahmed A. Tanko has paid a courtesy visit to the University.

The brief meeting took place on Thursday, December 1, 2022 at the VC’s Conference Room, Main Campus.

In his remark, the Area Commander, who just got transferred from Gombe said as part of the police culture, it is necessary to partner with the environment when in a new place, by familiarizing with most of the institutions in the area of jurisdiction.

He said, the purpose of his visit is to acquaint himself with the environment of the institution and at the same time the University Management to know him as well as having his number in case of any problem that might occur in terms of security.

Responding, the Vice chancellor of the University, Prof Abdulahi Bala FSSSN while welcoming the guest to Niger state and FUT Minna, thanked him for the visit.Adding that, as a high institution the University is a major stake holder in the scheme of things, especially with respect to peace and security of the state. And the two campuses are both within the area commander’s jurisdiction.

Prof Bala said, though the University has its own challenges but the University has a responsible set of students. And throughout his 5 years tenure the Management has never had any cause to close down university on account of student demonstrations, hence the University is relatively peaceful.

The Vc stated that, though of recent there has been challenges of banditry, kidnapping and Gidan kwano campus is a vast area of land and doesn’t have the basic impediment, like a perimeter fence. Adding that, the management has had cause to visit the then commissioner of police to make him understand some of these challenges.

Prof Bala further disclosed that the major outstanding issue the University is facing is that of encroachment by natives into the land, which was initially addressed by the then commissioner of police and the former D.P.O.

He added that, vast majority of the students are living within the host community and occasionally there are cases of robbery, buying and selling of Indian hemp, assault especially on their way to the campus at night. But the major ones are the issues of encroachment and Banditry.

The Vc expressed his gratitude and appreciated the gesture for the visit.
