Students at the federal university of Jos, Plateau State find themselves sleeping in panic as the menace of banditry reached the hostels of the federal institution. According to information available to 247ureports.com gathered from sources within the federal institution, the bandits believed to be either killer Fulani herdsmen or Boko Haram launched an attack at the hostel of the university at about 7:30pm.

Sporadic gunshots were heard at the entrance of the institution. The shots were coming from various direction. The attacker were approaching the female hostel when the students began running for their lives – and raising alarms – and making contacts with the outside world.

Although details remain sketchy, it was gathered that the security forces responded to the scene and repelled the bandits – who ran away. The security forces included the military forces who rode in motorcycles and Pickup trucks, and police officers who came fully geared.

The security forces instructed the students to remain indoors inside their respective hostels – that there is a likelihood the attackers may return.
