Unknown burglars stormed some halls of the University of Calabar female hostel and carted away some valuables belonging to the university students.
The affected sections of the hostel include Malabor Hall 6 and 9 respectively.
Genuine Reports gathered that due to the Corona virus pandemic, as well as the recent strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), virtually all the students have left the hostel and travelled home living food stuffs, clothing, kitchen utensils amongst others.
Speaking to one of the security agent found on the scene of the incidence who preferred anonymity, he noted that the incidence has been reoccurring. According to him “The Chief Security officer came this afternoon, and the Student Union government president and they have been taken round, they have seen the rooms that have been affected. I took them to the entrance where the robbers used to come in and they usually use a ladder, I showed them.”. He added that “When they got to the scene, they went and discovered that the entrance this robbers usually take.
This incidence is not just once, they destroyed the burglary proof, removed it in room 224 and got into the hotels and they have broken into about 42 rooms”.
He added that several complains have been made in the past regarding the issue as according to him ” We have been complaining yet nothing. These boys even cook here that means they are here with us, that is the pot and stove and the packet of noddles they prepared”.
Efforts to get the Chief Security officer to comment on the incident proved abortive
