In the early hours of Monday, 29th July, 2019; Uniuyo’s hall six hostel in the town campus of the school was attacked by four armed gunmen. A room in the hostel was raided and the robbers carted away with gadgets including phones and laptops.
Reports reaching us has it that a female student by name, Peace was stabbed during the raid. She was immediately rushed to the school’s medical center for treatment.
The armed men were not curtailed and after the attack left the school compound without being apprehended. A response by the Students’ Union Government (SUG) was given at about 7pm today by the Director of Information of the Union in an interview on Uniuyo FM, 100.7. Details of this can be obtained here
This further emphasizes the poor security situation in the school and brings the question of what the school’s management and state/federal government is doing to improve on it.
