Hostel F was thrown into turmoil after a robbery incident which took place inside the hostel at about 1AM today involving room 6 and room 24.
According to some of the students, a group of guys reported entered the hostel through the Toilet by removing the window and burglary of one of the toilets.
They went straight to room 6, covering their faces with wrapper. Collected their phones. Laptops, their ATM cards and pins before marching them to the kitchen where one of the room mates was stabbed and seriously injured.
One of the girls took the risk of running to the common room but found no security personnel there. The hostel mates were alerted around 4AM after room 24 had been robbed.
The girl who raised the alarm chose to remain anonymous but said she was able to do so because the guy who robbed them told them to go outside the room and this gave her the opportunity to lock the door and make calls outside the hostel while shouting to draw attention.
The guy escaped through the same toilet and the girls started receiving debit alert from their various bank accounts.
It was gathered that the school security who came later said they noticed some doors are faulty and this must have been the reason why they were able to gain access to the rooms.
The deputy Vice Chancellor academics, Prof Udo Nwokocha was present at the scene as a representative of the Vice Chancellor he said the management has decided to refund the stolen items to the affected girls and thorough investigation would Commence immediately and adequate measures would be taken on the security personnels assigned to that particular hostel if it is found out that there was negligence of duty.
Also present at the scene were the dean of student affairs, the chief security officers of the school and the Vice Chancellors personal security who all promised to do thorough investigation into the case.
