UNIMAID Professor, 4 Others Killed As Suicide Bomber Attack University

The Vice Chancellor, University of Maiduguri, Professor Ibrahim Njodi has urged the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) to assist the indigent students and children of those affected by the Boko Haram insurgency in the North-East.

Speaking with the Director-General of the NEMA during a courtesy visit at the Council Chambers of the University, the VC said “70 percent of my students came from the North-east which is being faced with Boko Haram insurgency, hence the need for your agency to assist the indigent and displaced students”.

He said “just recently a foundation called “Abdul Kabir foundation” has offered a scholarship to 100 indigent students of the university, with N100,000 each; I believe your agency should also come in to assist other indigent students ravaged by the insurgency”.

The Vice Chancellor assured NEMA that University of Maiduguri will continue to partner with the agency, more especially through the Disaster and Risk Management and Development Centre.
