Due to the level of insecurity ravaging the universities, the Management of the Olusegun Agagu University of Science and Technology, Okitipupa has called for the closure of the university for two weeks following the attack by hoodlums who robbed and raped students.
According to reports, no fewer than four female students had been raped by the hoodlums in their various hostels in the last two weeks.
Speaking and confirming the incidents, the President of the Student Union Government of the institution,
Damilola Okunomo, said;
“We are tired of this insecurity, armed hoodlums usually come to our off-campus hostels, rob students at gunpoint, and also rape our female students.
“The school management is not doing enough as we are the ones securing ourselves by working as vigilantes most times, the situation is terrible.
“We urge the school management to do its best in securing us and complete all the uncompleted hostel accommodations in our campus as this will also guarantee our security,”
Similarly, the Public Relations Officer of the varsity, Abdullazeez Adebayo, confirmed the development, saying;
“It is true the students staged a peaceful protest, and the school has been shut. The management will be meeting with all the traditional rulers and other stakeholders in the communities over the security of the students. In few days from now, the school would organised a security summit that will involve all the stakeholders in the area.”
