The Veritas university in Bwari Local Government Council of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, was abruptly shut down after security reports suggested that terrorists might target and kidnap students there after a failed attempt at the Nigerian Law School, which is located a short distance away.
New academic session which was hitherto slated to commence in September, had been put on hold following a security threat to the institution.
A security threat to the school forced the postponement of the start of the new academic session, which was previously scheduled to begin in September.
Additionally, the test for 100 level students, which was supposed to start this week, has been postponed indefinitely. The test would be “conducted at a date to be disclosed,” the school said.
Although Veritas University claimed in a statement on Wednesday that academic activities had come to a close and that the institution had closed, Stechitegist media has learned that the development is likely related to security threats the institution and security authorities have received.
“The Management of Veritas University wants to tell the general public that the University has successfully ended the 2021/2022 academic session,” said Evelyn Obekpa, the university’s public relations officer, in a succinct statement on Wednesday.
Exams for our 100-level students will be held at a later date owing to the present security crisis and the Minister of the FCT’s orders ordering the closure of schools in Abuja.
