Nigeria shut the University of Maiduguri in the northeastern Borno state over the threat of violence from the Islamic sect, Boko Haram, Daily Trust reported, citing a statement by the institution.

The students who were to begin their first semester examinations on Aug. 15 were asked to vacate the campus by noon yesterday, the Abuja-based newspaper said. The school will remain closed until the security situation improves, it said.

Nigerian security forces launched an attack on suspected Boko Haram members in Maiduguri over the weekend, Trust said.
