The authorities of Federal University, Dutsinma, FUDMA, in Katsina State, on Saturday dismissed social media and news reports of banditry attacks on its female hostel, describing it as not only fake but mischievous and unfounded.
The varsity’s Acting Director Public Relations, Habib Garba Matazu, told newsmen yesterday in Katsina that it is unfortunate that some people hide under unpopular platforms to spread rumours and discordant lies for their selfish motives.
He further stated that the university is currently enjoying a safe and secured academic environment and that activities are going on uninterrupted in the institution.
