The Vice-Chancellor, Federal University Dutsinma, FUDMA, Katsina State, Prof Armaya’u Bichi, has raised the alarm that some of the institution’s staff were serving as informants to the bandits.

Bichi made this known to newsmen in Katsina on Tuesday, stressing that the contacts of the suspected staffers were given to a security agency for further investigation.

Recall that suspected bandits have been attacking the area, kidnapping students and staffers of the university as well as their family members.

Staff of the university staged a peaceful protest over insecurity following a recent attack that led to the death of one of their colleagues.

The Vice-Chancellor said the school management is doing everything possible to prevent the recurrence of such incidents, but the situation is getting worse.

Bichi said, “This issue of informants is worrisome; therefore, we investigated those we are suspecting of giving out their colleagues and students’ information.

”We have found them and handed over their contacts to one of the security agencies for further investigation.

“But we have not heard anything from the securities.

“These suspects are our staff. We have strong reasons for accusing them of being informants to bandits,” the vice chancellor revealed.”

Reacting to the situation, the police command in the state said that they were not aware of such an issue but promised to further investigate the matter.

The command’s spokesman, ASP Abubakar Sadiq-Aliyu, who reacted, called on the public to always assist them with information that would end the security challenges.
