Some staff of the university’s staff of the Federal University Dutsinma (FUDMA), Katsina State, have been accused of serving as informants to bandits.

The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Armaya’u Bichi, made the allegations while speaking with newsmen in Katsina on Tuesday.

He said that the contacts of the suspected staffers were given to a security agency for further investigation.

Suspected bandits have been attacking the area, kidnapping students and staffers of the university as well as their family members.

A recent attack that led to the death of one of the university’s staff prompted his colleagues to stage a peaceful protest over insecurity, according to the News Agency of Nigeria.

According to the vice-chancellor, the school management is doing everything possible to prevent the recurrence of such incidents, but the situation is getting worse.

Bichi said, “This issue of informants is worrisome; therefore, we investigated those we are suspecting of giving out their colleagues’ and students’ information.

”We have found them and handed over their contacts to one of the security agencies for further investigation.

“But we have not heard anything from the securities.

“These suspects are our staff. We have strong reasons for accusing them of being informants to bandits,” the vice chancellor revealed.”

But the Police Command while reacting to the situation, said that they were not aware of such an issue but promised to further investigate the matter.

The command’s spokesman, ASP Abubakar Sadiq-Aliyu, who reacted, called on the public to always assist them with information that would end the security challenges.
