DELSU Issues Red Alert As Abraka Boils Again



The Management of Delta State University, Abraka (DELSU) has advised staff and students of the university to avoid late-night movements that may predispose them to danger.

In a statement published in its official bulletin, the university authority expressly advised members of the university community to “be security conscious” in light of the growing number of killings and kidnapping activities in Abraka and its environs.

DELSU Echo reports that the university community has been faced with lingering security challenges in the last few weeks.

Recently, a food vendor was stabbed to death by an unknown assailant, just as an Okada rider was shot dead before his motorcycle was stolen by suspected armed robbers.

There have also been several reported cases of kidnapping within and around the town in recent times.

The situation has placed many residents of the university town on edge and even fueled a rumour of imposed curfew in the town.

Reacting to the development over the weekend, the Prof. Andy Egwunyenga-led university management urged staff and students of the university to shun “unnecessary night movements which may expose them to dangerous situations”.

Meanwhile, the Delta State University has secured full accreditation status from the National Universities Commission (NUC) for all its academic programme run in Abraka, Oleh and all other affiliate campuses.

The Vice Chancellor of DELSU, Prof. Andy Egwunyenga said the commendable feat was attained despite Nigeria’s inclement financial situation that has negatively affected the smooth administration of universities.
