  1. Upon reading this, my mind flew back to our dear school, COOU, and all the crimes of similar nature being perpetrated there came to bare.

    These guys were accused of robbing people of handsets and other valuables at night, and consequently, paraded by the vigilante group and it is almost certain that they will not spend less than 6months in prison, each.

    But in our dear school, the rate at which some daredevil students rob other students of their belongings on the streets in broad daylight, making use of various weapons which inter alia, includes guns, knives, clubs, bottles and most times very rough manhandling are 100 times more horrendous than what is up there but unfortunately, these students go scot-free to enjoy their ‘bounty’ and therefore, gain more impetus to continue their dastardly acts.

    This special kind of school robbery have been branded and deodorised with various names like ‘running street’, ‘obtaining’, ‘basing’, ‘observing men’ and a host of others.

    The school’s anti-crime unit has since stopped functioning effectively and have even started aiding the advancement of these evils that have seem to find a comfortable resting place on the streets of our various lodges and even inside these lodges. I say this because most times, when they are called to investigate situations like robbery or burglary of a students’ apartment, they will ab initio, request for a certain amount of money or other ‘favours’ from the victim, thereby putting such person in a dilemma. It’s very bad.

    These acts are, no doubt, being perpetrated by members of the various cult groups in our school who feel so confident when doing these things for they know that there aren’t any effective sanctions that could affect them adversely, when caught. COOU doesn’t expel indicted cultists even when found guilty of other crimes in conjunction with it. Just before the school vacated last semester, 2 cultists were found with guns in the school premises during one of the cult clashes and they were apprehended by the anti-cult ‘brigade’ but, to my greatest surprise, I later saw them engaging in a ribald carousal during the departmental night of one of them. I was shocked with maniacal bewilderment.

    Something should be done about this very high rate of robbery in our school and it should be done fast or else students will have no choice than to take laws into their hands.
    I’ve been a victim of armed robbery by students more than once.
