According to a press statement by the Public Relations Officer Hassan Ismaeel, the Vice Chancellor stated that out of 589 students offered admission, only 450 were fully registered, stressing that those who were present during the oath-taking were the bonafide first-year students.

Mohammed said, “The university was conceived and established based on the good ethos and values of the Nigerian Army, which are; discipline, orderliness and respect for constituted authority as well as the universal values of universities; which is freedom to hold and profess divergent opinions.

“Nigerian Army University Biu has zero tolerance for unethical and bad behaviour, the rod will not be spared on anyone who tests the will of the University. The university will not tolerate examination malpractice, cultism, or occultic practices, sexual harassment and violence of any sort.”+
