A group of armed men in the early hours of Monday (almost at daybreak) invaded one of the female hostels, at the University of Uyo (town campus), robbing and maiming some of their victims.
According to our findings, the armed men numbering about 4 had access into the popular Hall 6, shortly after the Porters had opened the gate at daybreak, around 5, 6am.
See a video of the room below:
They moved straight to the Hall President’s room, asking for a particular girl. Since they couldn’t find their target, they robbed the occupants of their phones, laptops and other valuables, then stabbed one of them, Emem who tried to raise an alarm.
The badly injures Emem had since been rushed to a medical facility for urgent medical attention.
No official statement has been issued by the School’s authority or the Students Union Government.
More details coming…
