Students of the Federal University, Wukari and their lecturers are unable to resume their studies and work as the Tiv/Jukun crisis enters its second month.

Most of the students and lecturers lamented the inability of government to end the communal crisis having known that Wukari was strategic and housing people of different tribes.

A senior lecturer and a dean in the university told LEADERSHIP that he could not report at the school due to the insecurity in Wukari,

He said: “I am well known in the university and in Wukari, I am from the opposite tribe and my house is located within an area that the irate youths can simply do away with me anytime they want.

“Government has not provided enough security to enable most of the lecturers and students to go back to Wukari, so many students have missed the first semester examination due to the crisis.

Four final-year students of the university told LEADERSHIP that even though they were aware that studies were ongoing in the school, they could not resume for their studies for fear of being killed.

Some of the students said that their parents should withdraw them from the university to others because of the delay and waste of academic years.

The president of the Students Union Government (SUG) of the university, Emos Elam, called on the government to end the Wukari crisis to enable them resumed their studies.
