Terrorism: Abuja University Shuts Down


Following the worsening insecurity in Abuja and its environs, VERITAS University, located in Bwari, Abuja, has shut down academic activities.

Terrorists had struck in Bwari area last Sunday and killed Army officers and wounded many soldiers.   


The abrupt closure of the Roman Catholic owned university, followed security reports indicating that terrorists could attack and abduct students of the school after foiled attempt at the Nigerian Law School, sited some few kilometres apart.

New academic session which was hitherto slated to commence in September, had been put on hold following security threat to the institution.

Besides, the 100 level examinations billed to begin this week, was suspended indefinitely. The school said the examination would be “conducted at a date to be announced.”

The Public Relations Officer of Veritas University, Evelyn Obekpa, confirmed the development in a statement. It read: “The Management of Veritas University wishes to notify the general public that the University has successfully completed the 2021/2022 academic session.

“However, due to the current security tension and the directives of the Minister of the FCT for the closure of schools in Abuja, examinations for our 100 level students shall be conducted at a date to be announced later.

“Candidates seeking admission into Veritas University for the 2022/2023 academic session are encouraged to visit the university or the university’s website – www.veritas.edu.ng to obtain admission form. All correspondences may be forwarded to the following emails”.
