UNICAL Calls For More Security Personnel On Waterways
The Vice Chancellor of the University of Calabar, Prof. Florence Obi, has called on the Nigerian Army, Navy and the Maritime Police to always maintain a steady presence at sea to enhance security in the state.
Obi made the call on Monday when the Commandant of the Nigerian Army Amphibious Training School, Calabar, Brig.-Gen. Joshua Nimyel, paid her a courtesy call in her office in calabar.
The VC explained that steady presence of security personnel along the Calabar channel would prevent hoodlums from using the river to get entrance into the University.
She lamented that the porous nature of the river beside the University had continue to pose a security challenge to the University community.
According to her, most of the suspected kidnappers that have gain entrance into the institution to either kidnap or rob staff came through the river side.
