University of Ilorin Introduces Self-Defence Training for Criminology Students

Date: 2024-06-11

According to news report from Vanguard, the Department of Criminology and Security Studies at the University of Ilorin (Unilorin) has introduced self-defence and combat training as a vocational skill for its students.

Dr. Adedeji Oyenuga, a visiting scholar in the department, announced this initiative on Monday during the maiden edition of the combat training at the university’s sports complex.

Oyenuga, an Associate Professor at Lagos State University (LASU), explained that the training could not be immediately incorporated into the curriculum due to the proposal’s lateness. However, the university recognised its importance and decided to offer it as a vocational activity with plans to integrate it into the curriculum later.

He emphasised the significance of self-defence within the context of security studies.

“I commend the university for thinking outside the box and swiftly approving the idea of practical combat training,” he said.

Oyenuga pointed out that the integration of self-defence and combat training into the curriculum reflected the university’s commitment to producing well-rounded graduates.

He said these would be those who are academically proficient and capable of ensuring personal safety and the security of others.

“This innovative approach aligns with the evolving landscape of Criminology and Security Studies, which demands a comprehensive understanding of practical self-defence techniques,” the don explained.
