The attention of the Management of Bayero University, Kano (BUK) as been drawn to a fake news item making the rounds about the reported case of Corona Virus in the University.
We wish to state unequivocally clear that, there has never been a case
of Corona virus in the University whatsoever. For the avoidance of
doubt, the University was shut down since Friday, 20th March, 2020 in
line with the directives by the Federal Ministry of Education and all
students have already vacated the hostel of residence.
We therefore, appeal to members of the general public to kindly
disregard the purported news in respect of the emergence of Corona
Virus in Bayero University and should consider such information as
fake, unfounded and maliciously concocted.
We are particularly disturbed that some heartless individuals will
fabricate fake news using a screen short of a reputable news.
The Management had taken all necessary measures to protect all
members of the University community (staff and students) from the
dreaded COVID19; Bayero University is safe and free from the virus.
