Mubi Killings: FG Says School Authorities are to be Blamed

Parents of some of the victims mourning

As security agents claim that they have arrested the master minders of the killing of 46 students at Mubi, Adamawa State, the Federal Government has said vice chancellors, rectors and provosts of universities, polytechnics and colleges of education, respectively, would be held responsible for the safety of students, particularly those living off campus beginning from the 2013 academic year.

This was made known by the Minister of Education, Prof. Ruqayyatu Rufa’i, in Ilorin during the commissioning of the new Joint Admissions Matriculation Board, JAMB, Zonal Office on Tuesday. According to the minister, the protection of lives of students, even when they live off campus should be of utmost concern to the heads of tertiary institutions, “especially when it is not absolutely their choice to live off campus, but because we cannot afford to accommodate all of them on campus,” she said.

While acknowledging that the recent Mubi killings could not be justified under any guise, the minister said every Nigerian should condemn the unfortunate incident and support government’s fight against the current security challenges.

She also further pointed out that there would have been no basis for appointment of headship of higher institutions if they were not occupied by human beings who had property. She then asked the heads of tertiary institutions to ensure that the safety of lives and property remained a major priority.
