THE Federal Government has begun the construction of the 27 . 3 – kilometre perimeter fence for the University of Maiduguri to check incessant attacks by Boko Haram terrorists.
The project , which is valued at N64 bn , is to stop the terrorists who have been penetrating the North- East part of the institution’s campus.
Chairman , Academic Staff Union of Universities in UNIMAID , Dr Dani Mamman , who stated these in an interview with The PUNCH , said only the western and southern parts of UNIMAID campus were initially fenced.
He said , “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.
