University of Uyo (UniUyo) female students match out en-mass to protest after they were robbed for the second time in three days.
The female students of UniUyo match to protest for the school authority to provide adequate security in their hostels after a second robbery attack.
The female students living in the school’s hostel no longer feel safe after the series of robbery. According to a student, Joyce Jimm, the armed robbers came with P.O.S this time to rob students off their money.
The girls are now requesting adequate security and trained security guards and not the “old men and gatemen” they currently have.
