Maigoro said: “…The university is a citadel of learning where every category of individual works, regardless of ethnic and religious affiliations. As a result, whenever there is any security breach in town, this citadel of learning should not, by any means, be affected.
“But sadly, as soon as a crisis situation erupts in any part of the town, the university students and workers suddenly become targets for assassination and butchery by residents of the immediate environment.
