In recent time the students of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB) in Ogun State can no longer sleep with their two eyes closed over fears that they may be robbed overnight.
But the Vice-Chancellor of the university, Prof. Kolawole Salako, said the recent robbery incidents only took place in private hostels, which he said are far away from the main campus.
There have been cases of students of the federal university being robbed by unknown armed men.
It was gathered that the last robbery, which occurred on Thursday, was the third in seven days, with no arrest made by the police.
As reported, the armed robbers allegedly made away with five iPhone 11, six necklaces, some cash, four generator sets and other valuables.
The situation, it was learnt, has led to a mass exodus of students from the affected hostels to safer houses within Obantoko and Osiele areas of Abeokuta, to prevent being robbed.
However, the Vice-Chancellor said the management of FUNAAB and landlords of the affected private hostels were putting efforts in top gear to prevent a recurrence of robbery; adding that the police and other security agents were on top of the matter.
