Like Boko Haram, another terror sect has emerged in the heart of Yoruba land, Ibadan.
The group, Al-wilayat al-Islamiyya Gharb Afriqiyyah, sent out messages to staff and student of the University of Ibadan.
The group has threatened to bomb the premier institution before the October 1 Independence Day celebration.
The group particularly stated that students and staff were their targets, describing the university as an embarrassment to Nigeria for bringing western education into the country.
Their message to the school said: “You people are an embarrassment to Nigeria.
“You brought in western education to Nigeria.
“You doomed this nation and in turn you all are going to be doomed.
“Most of you are going to die before Independence Day.
“You will not spend the Independence Day in peace, you and your students.
“Detonation will start going from tomorrow till Independence Day and there is nothing you can do as we are among you.
“Even your little searches at the gate won’t do anything. By the time we are through with you, your government will be sorry.
University of Ibadan’s Communication Director, Olatunji Oladejo, “I also got the letter too.
“Our international students are having their carnival on the campus and everywhere is peaceful.
“I attribute it to the handiwork of mischievous individuals and vehemently deny any commotion,” he said.
Corroborating the story, the Police Public Relations Officer in Oyo state, Adekunle Ajisebutu, said “We have received the information.
“We have deployed our intelligence officers to provide adequate security in the school.
“As it is, it is still a rumor but we don’t want to take things for granted.
“We have provided adequate security, not only for the school, but for the people of the state.
“We enjoin members of the public to go about their lawful businesses and to be law-abiding.”
