The Management of Bayero University Kano (BUK) has described as fake news reports of kidnapping or security breaches on its campus.
It was reported that the management of BUK said its attention was drawn to a fake alarm on a security breach on the campus.
This was contained in a statement issued to newsmen by the University Deputy Registrar, Lamara Garba Azare.
The statement said: “We wish to state unequivocally that, there has never been a case of kidnapping in any of the campuses of the University whatsoever.
For the avoidance of doubt, the University has for a very long time taken all the necessary steps and measures to ensure the safety of students and Staffs.’’
The statement said the institution is particularly disturbed that some heartless individuals will fabricate fake news knowing that it will cause panic not only within the University but within the Kano environment and beyond.
“Bayero University is safe and secure. We therefore, appeal to members of the general public to kindly disregard the purported alarm in respect of any threat to the security in Bayero University and should consider such information as fake, unfounded, and maliciously concocted, “the statement said.
