The Provost of the college, Dr Johnson Pongri, has directed the closure of the institution in a news conference in Yola Friday.
Pongri said the move was based on the advice of the Military Task Force in the area as the school had been receiving threat letters by unknown persons who claimed to be members of the Boko Haram, he noted.
