Management of Nigerian Law school and Veritas University in Bwari have shut down the campuses of their schools.

This was consequent upon a letter they purportedly received from bandits who threatened to attack and kidnap their students.

Some of students have returned home on account of the forced and sudden closure of the schools, both located in Bwari in Bwari Area Council.

Bwari is about an hour’s drive to Abuja City Centre and it is surrounded by a wide expanse of forest.

idyllic settlement shares boundaries with Niger State enroute Kaduna.

It is feared that bandits can easily operate from forest, launch their onslaughts and retreat with their victims.

A security expert working in area confirmed the incident but said “no brief have been received by the police yet” on the development

He said: “As we all know, Sabon wuse has a shortcut that links to Bwari where there is a recent threat on Law school and Veritas.
I don’t think this is in isolation of ransom paid by govt. (My take).

whimper of these guys has now being fueled and they are moving fearlessly for fatter targets.

“Based on these, we will experience sharp increase in abduction/kidnapping mainly VIPs children and family members on route in and out to school or office. Abduction of Various sector and organizations staff members. Attack on popular government facilities, top private schools and universities in FCT.

“My Advice: situation in the country is deteriorating which requires extra conscious to deal with the current threat’s.

“Going forward.

  1. Kindly ensure you take your kids to school yourself or assigned a trust worthy driver.
  2. Monitor them while at home not to go out of sight.
  3. Make alternate of route a habit.
  4. Don’t allow bike riders to take you directly to your resident, stop 100 -200 mtrs from your house.
  5. Low profile is key this time around”

Meanwhile a leaked audio conversation between Ordinary Ahmed Isah and the Inspector General of Police, Ahmed Alkali reportedly confirmed the possibility of many bandits finding their way into the Federal capital territory.

There were feelers that security men would be deployed in Bwari to ward off and rein in the bandits.
