A suspected rapist has reportedly invaded the hostel of a girls school in Abia leaving many of the female students injured in the process of the attempted rape.
The incident was reported to have occurred at the Ovim Girls Secondary Secondary in Isuikwuato Local Government Area of Abia State early this morning.
According to reports, the rapist stormed the school armed with dangerous weapons like Cutlass, iron rod .The victims are currently receiving treatment at a nearby hospital.
This brings to remembrance an incident that happened in a secondary school in neighboring Imo State in the year 2010.
Students of Owerri Girls Secondary School will not forget November 28, 2010, in a hurry. They woke up like they did in previous days. They concluded all the activities lined up for them by their handlers and retired to their dormitories for the night’s rest. None of them, including their teachers, had any inkling of the danger that was lurking in the corner.
For these unfortunate five, the trauma occasioned by the ugly incident may linger for a life time! They have to contend with the possibility of being infected with the dreaded HIV virus. While in the school, there is the likelihood that their fellow students may occasionally taunt them as a result of the incident.
