The student claimed he had enlisted a popular terrorist group, the Islamic state (ISIS), to help bomb the university and told staff he planned to carry out a chemical attack in the city.

The international energy studies student was found guilty of seven charges and was remanded in custody.

The 26-year-old will be sentenced next month, according to Sahara Reporters.

Keith Mackle, 58, now retired director of student services, told Perth Sheriff Court he became aware of "serious concerns" in the autumn of 2021.

Accommodation officer Shane Taylor also told the court Okwuoha accused him of being racist and said he planned to wipe out Scottish people as revenge.

All these accusations have then turned against the Nigerian student's fate as he will be sent back home after the court takes its final decision.
