Boko Haram Scare: Adamawa University Shut Down

Adamawa State University, Mubi, in the restive North east of the country has been shut down indefinitely due to the fear of attack from the dreaded Islamic sect, Boko Haram.



    The acting registrar of the institution, Hassan Tanko, announced the closure of the institution in Yola, the Adamawa state capital, on Sunday.

    The possible attack may have forced authorities of the institution to close it down following the aerial onslaught by the Nigerian Air force on Bama town forcing the insurgents to retreat from the strategic town into Mubi and Michika in Adamawa state with large Christian populations.

    It was reported that the students made their way out of the institution on getting wind that the dislodged members of the sect were advancing towards Mubi and Michika.

    The students and other residents were seen at motor parks trying to leave the town, with many of them stranded.
