“Management also reassures the university community and other stakeholders that the university will continue to ensure the protection of lives and property on campus.”

According to the management, the latest suicide attack on the institution occurred on Sunday between 10:19 pm and 2:45 am.

It added that the attack was carried out by one male and two female suicide bombers.

When the bomber detonated his device, four security personnel were injured and one of them, a female died on the way to the hospital.

The statement added, “The second bomber, who found her way into the Centre for Entrepreneurship and Enterprise Development, detonated her device and died on the spot. The third bomber was intercepted by vigilant security operatives behind the Works Department where she also detonated her device and died alone.”
