The University of Ilorin's Department of Criminology and Security Studies has introduced self-defence and combat training as a vocational activity to equip students with essential skills.

Dr. Adedeji Oyenuga, a Visiting Scholar, disclosed this at the maiden edition of the combat training at the university's sports complex.

Although the training cannot be immediately integrated into the curriculum due to the proposal's lateness, the university has recognized its importance and decided to offer it as a vocational activity before incorporating it into the curriculum at a later date.

Dr. Oyenuga, an Associate Professor at Lagos State University, highlighted the significance of self-defence within the context of security studies.

He commended the university for swiftly approving the idea of practical combat training and noted that the integration of self-defence and combat training into the curriculum reflects the university's commitment to producing well-rounded graduates who are academically proficient and capable of ensuring personal safety and the security of others.
