Boko Haram Attack University; Maiduguri, Borno State. While we may as a nation have made considerable success in the fight against the insurgency group Boko Haram and perhaps displaced them from the acclaimed Sambisa forest, it is no doubt we can not exactly say we have completely worn the war on terror with the insurgency group.

More than any time, we need to maintain constant vigilance because while the group may have been displaced from Sambisa forest, they by all means still remain at large in considerable numbers still withing our borders.

This makes them even more dangerous now considering no one can pin point their location, than when we could narrow down their location to the forest.

This also means that if we as a nation are not careful to put in place parameters that will help us know for sure members of our communities, what we considered victory may turn out to be our worst nightmare as these terrorist will gradually infiltrate the public making it even more difficult to differentiate them and as such, also making wiping them out completely an impossible mission.

At least 4 people including a professor of veterinary medicine yesterday were reported killed in University of Maiduguri while over 15 others were injured as 2 suicide bombers infiltrated the university while prayers were going on at the university mosque.

These attacks were carried out by a 7 year old and another child perhaps a teenager at the 2nd and 5th gates of the university respectively. while there was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attacks, it is no news that the terrorist group Boko Haram Insurgency whom we say we have defeated are by all means behind the attacks.

Given information on the incidence, head of media and public relations for the national emergency management agency Mr Sani Datti said one of the bombers detonated his device at a Mosque near Gate 1 of the University while people were praying. As people in the midst of confusion tried to get to safety, the other one detonated hers at the Gate 5 end of the university.

This incidence should be an eye opener to the government and all the security departments considering that even in the heat of terrorism in the country, the security of an institution such as University of Maiduguri could not be bridged. So if now that we have declared victory people are been killed incessantly while security personnel are taking unawares, then it should indeed give us concern.
