The police in Borno confirmed the arrest of eight suspects in connection to the alledged murder of Dr Kamar Abdulkadir, a Lecturer of the Department of Physical Health Education, at the University of Maiduguri.

“We reviewed the CCTV Camera and saw them going out of the University with the deceased’s vehicle. However, the quality of the video was very poor so we could not see the number of people that were inside the car,”he said.

He explained that investigation was still ongoing into the matter.

Reacting, Prof Danjuma Gambo, the Director of Radio and Public Relations who spoke on behalf of the vice Chancellor of the University, Prof. Abdullahi Shugaba, said the police and other security agencies have already launched an investigation with a view to unraveling the circumstances surrounding his death.

“Management also wishes to assure parents, guardians and other stakeholders that the University campus remains safe and secure for teaching, learning and community service.
