The management of the University of Ibadan on Wednesday said it had no intention to make life unbearable for the university community through the recent screening exercise introduced at the institution’s gates.
The university’s Director of Communication, Mr Olatunji Oladejo, said in Ibadan that the measure was in response to the threat by an unknown group to launch bomb attacks on its campus.
The security personnel were stationed at the entrance of the university and were searching students and visitors entering the institution.
Oladejo, who said the university was not taking the threat for granted, added that this informed the security beef up in and around the university.
He said that the campus security service had been complementing the efforts of other security agencies in ensuring security on the campus.
“What we are trying to do is to avert any unpleasant situation in the university,” he said.
Some of the students, who spoke with NAN, said although they were apprehensive of the situation, there was nothing they could do but resort to divine intervention.
