Armed robbers stormed a hostel occupied by students of University of Calabar, Tuesday night, r*ping a 17-year-old female student of the school to a state of coma.
According to a witness who spoke to Vanguard, the robbers attacked the hostel located at Mount Zion Road/ Inyang Edem Street at about 2am and r*ped all the female students before carting away all their laptops and cell phones.
“They stared by firing warning shots into the air to warn us that they came for serious business and thereafter went from room to room battering everybody and raping the female students one after the other,” the witness who gave his name as Ngoli said.
He said the girl that went into coma was still a virgin that made all the robbers want to have a taste of her.
“The first one to pounce on her announced to the rest that she was still a virgin and that made everyone of them go after her and in the process she bled seriously yet they would not allow her go,” he said.
Sources say police have commenced investigation on the matter.
