The University of Maiduguri will wear a new look as the Federal Government has begun the construction of 27.3 kilometre perimeter fence.
This is to checkmate the incessant attacks by the Boko Haram terrorists.
The project is valued to cost ₦64 billion and will curb the terrorists penetration of the North-East.
The Academic Staff Union of Universities in the University, Dr. Dani Mamman said only the western and southern parts of UNIMAID campus were initially fenced.
In his words, “The UNIMAID perimeter fence is still being constructed. The Federal Government approved N64 bn for the construction of 27.3-kilometre perimeter fence for UNIMAID. That place is very porous.
“The ASUU UNIMAID wrote to the Minister of Education through the ASUU president after an explosion during which we lost a professor and seven other staff.”
