Religious Clash: Harmless Christians Killed In Attacks In Katsina
Muslims ‘Attack’ Harmless Christians: Emerging report, revealed that Muslim students in the Federal University in Dutsin-ma, Katsina State, are mobilising and protesting against Christian employees, in the University.
Andrew Moses, a Security Guard at the University, said: “We saw strange faces stationed at the Academic Department housing of the University management staff, including the Vice Chancellor. When we inquired about their mission, they simply said, ‘We are here for jihad against Christians in the university’.”
Moses added that he and other guards quickly alerted the University’s Head of Security, who immediately called the Police.
A Lecturer at the University who sought anonymity, disclosed that there had been longstanding tension at the University, with Muslim students accusing the former Vice Chancellor, James Ayatse, of favoring Christians, in filling academic and non-academic vacancies.
The University’s Governing Council, had earlier fired Kaita, over allegations of financial mismanagement.
Kaita mounted a legal challenge to his suspension in court, and won a verdict ordering the Governing Council to reinstate him.
“Professor Kaita came to the University with a group of Muslims, who threatened to deal with any Christians working here”, referring to the Federal Government-owned University.
He said the Muslim students backing Kaita, also mobilized other Muslim groups from Dutsin-ma town, to support their mission of unseating Christians in the University.
One source revealed that Samuel Zumve, the interim Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, hastily mobilized some Christian students who came together, “prepared to defend their Christian fellows in the University.”
