At least four female students of the Tai Solarin University of Education (TASUED), Ijagun, Ogun State, have been raped after hoodlums suspected to be robbers attacked their hostels.
According to reports, the criminals in the early hours of Tuesday invaded hostels at Abapawa – an area of the campus housing the students – and perpetrated the act.
This development was said to have raised an uproar among students before the intervention of security operatives.
Reacting to the incident, the state Deputy Governor, Noimot Salako-Oyede, while on the visit to the area alongside the Commissioner of Police, Alamutu Abiodun, and Commissioner of Education, Science and Technology, Prof Abayomi Arigbabu promised that perpetrators would be brought to book.
She also paid a visit to the victims where she ordered that they be moved to the state-owned Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital, Sagamu for proper medical attention.
“Earlier today (Tuesday), after receiving the distressing news about an armed robbery at some TASUED hostels and the brutal rape of four female students, His Excellency Prince Dapo Abiodun directed me to immediately visit the victims and the campus on a fact-finding mission and to pledge the government’s support in ensuring this doesn’t happen again,” she said.
“I have visited the girls who are now being cared for and given the necessary support to heal from their trauma at the Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC) at OSUTH.
“Ensuring the safety and well-being of our students is of utmost importance and I subsequently had a crucial meeting with the Management and Students of TASUED. I was joined by the Ogun State Commissioner for Police, Mr. Abiodun Alamutu and the Honourable Commissioner for Education, Prof. Abayomi Arigbabu, where we discussed concrete steps to bolster security measures and foster a safe environment on campus and the adjacent host community.”Follow us on social media:
