The University of Ibadan (UI) Security Committee, on Monday recommended the use of armed police patrol on campus to put in check the rising insecurity and armed robberies in the university.
The security committee in a special bulletin signed by the Vice Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Idowu Olayinka, which was made available to pressmen, stated that the decision was made after reviewing the security situation in the university.
“There will be armed policemen from the Oyo State Police Command to compliment the campus security service in patrolling the campus with immediate effect. All business outfits, including restaurants, should close by 9pm daily.
