Kaduna Government College Principal Gets Death Threats for Releasing Buhari’s Results

January 23, 2015 8:19 am

Barely 24 hours after releasing Gen. Muhammadu Buhari’s 1961 West
African School Certificate (WASC) results, the Principal of the
Government College, Katsina, Mallam Isyaku Bello, has been receiving
death threats, The Nation reports

The source of the threats could not be ascertained last night.

The principal was summoned by his employers, the Katsina State Ministry
of Education, in connection with the release of the results, sources
close to Mallam Bello said last night.

The embattled principal was said to have explained that he needed to
defend the integrity of the college (formerly Provincial Secondary
School, Katsina) and not Gen. Buhari.

Bello made distress calls to his friends and relatives, The Nation learnt.

One source said: “Some forces were unhappy with the issuance of results
to Gen. Buhari and they have been threatening the principal. They have
been calling him names, abusing him. Some were actually threatening to
deal with him.

“They told the principal that he ought to have left Buhari to his fate instead of releasing his results.

“Faced with pressure, the principal has reached out to friends and
relatives on the threats. He explained that he did so to protect the
integrity of the college and not anybody’s.

“We hope that no harm will come upon the principal, who was just doing his job.”

It was unclear as at press time last night whether Bello had reported
the threat to the police or not. He did not pick his calls and messages
to his telephone were not replied.
