The University of Calabar, UNICAL has unveiled a Police station that also has a functional cell to curb all forms of crime in the institution. The Vice Chancellor of the university, Prof. Zana Akpagu, made this known at the 32nd convocation press briefing.
The VC stated: “Security is our number one priority. Security on campus is watertight. Times have changed. Secret cults have assumed a very dangerous dimension. They are not the secret cults we used to know. The ones we have now are very deadly. We have zero tolerance for cultism. That is why we now have a Police station on campus. “The Police station will have a functional cell. Anybody who runs afoul of the law will be thrown into the cell. We don’t have to take him outside the campus. The state Commissioner of Police, Austine Agbonlahor, has come and inspected the state.”
“We have also applied for a naval base to be established here. You know, the university is bordered by the Qua River through which four of our lecturers were kidnapped. The Chief of Naval Staff has approved a naval base and a jetty for us. That is how seriously we take security,” the VC added.
