DSS to train UNILORIN security personnel
The Department of State Services (DSS) has agreed to train the security personnel of the University of Ilorin (UNILORIN) for the improvement of security around campus.
Director of DSS, Kwara State Command, Bashir Abubakar, made this known on Monday during a meeting with UNILORIN vice-chancellor Prof. Wahab Egbewole (SAN).
Abubakar, who was responding to an appeal by the vice-chancellor, noted that the security of the university campus is critical as it provides a conducive environment for learning.
The DSS director observed that the synergy between the two institutions was very important as the country cannot afford unrest or defectiveness in the education system at such a critical time in the nation’s life.
He pointed out that intelligence gathering towards a peaceful campus is essential, noting that the collaboration between the DSS and UNILORIN provided the DSS with strength.
Abubakar pledged that essential intelligence needed for peaceful coexistence on the university’s campuses would be provided.
“We will be glad to train your security team. It will assist us in maintaining our presence in your institution without direct involvement,” he said.
Earlier, the UNILORIN VC stressed the importance of intelligence gathering and commended the DSS for the role it is playing in the security architecture of the nation.
The vice-chancellor also called for greater collaboration between the security outfit and the university.
