Tension heightened on Friday afternoon at the University of Ibadan, Oyo State, following the circulation ‎of a letter purportedly written to all staff by a Boko Haram group threatening to wreak monumental havoc through ceaseless bombings of the institution, beginning from today, Saturday, September 24, 2016.

This is according to a THISDAY report, which said that the university’s sin is that it is first in the country that brought in and entrenched western education.

The paper reported that “both teaching and non-teaching staff were in panic at the moment as others were discussing the message which is now widely circulated within the university community.” It added that no official reaction has been made on the purported mail.

“It was gathered that while some lecturers got the mail through their institutional e-mail addresses, others were copied through social platforms such as WhatsApp to share the letter,” THISDAY said.

It said that in the alleged mail, the group “al-wilayat al-Islamiyya Gharb Afriqiyyah” described University of Ibadan as an embarrassment to Nigeria for bringing western education.

“Security has been strengthened at the university gates with scanning and ‘stop and search’ being carried out, leading to many resuming work very late as they spent nothing less than an hour at the gate while traffic snarl was witnessed owing to the security threat,” the report said.

It added that “while saying that UI doomed the nation, the purported letter threatened to begin detonation on the campus, adding that most staff and students are going to die before Independence Day” – that is October 1.
