It is a veritable fact that, FUTA has remained one of the most peaceful campuses in the country. It is also the best university of technology in Nigeria. No death of staff and students had been recorded as a result of the Security lapses for a very long time. The campus has been made condusive for academic and non-academic activities in view of the effective security coverage of the campus by the unit. It is quite obvious that, the activities of the unscrupulous students’ e.g. cultists, have been considerably check mated by the unit. The university through the security unit has zero tolerance for cultism, violence or any form of Terrorism. A high level of cordial relationship with External Security Agencies e.g Police, SSS, Civil Defense, Road Safety etc has been established and sustained by the unit.
