The students of Central University took to Twitter to express their concerns over the recent activities of arm robbers on campus.
The hashtag #MakeCUSafeAgain indicates that the university students of Central University are not safe as robbers continue to attack them even in broad daylight.
The security issues during these days are becoming matters of national concern and students of Central University are not left out of the activities of these notorious robbers.
Narrating to EGTV Ghana, the students complained that the school is in complete darkness and there are no street lights. This has made it possible for robberies to be carried out every single night.
According to an anonymous message received from one of the students, here’s how he narrated the issue on the campus.
“No lights on campus, security is bad and robbery cases are getting out of hand, between Wednesday, 3rd September and Tuesday, 7th September about 10 students have been robbed at gunpoint and we are afraid to walk out even in the day. This has left the entire student population in fear. The authorities are aware but have decided to turn a deaf ear to our cries, on the first day of our orientation we were advised not to resist the criminals that if they come we should give them our items showing clearly that the school is aware and has decided to ignore. Central University is a private school and as such pays a lot of money a semester for tuition and accommodation yet the school cannot protect the students. This is one of the many challenges students are facing in the school poor roads, no street lights, bush everywhere etc the school is not what it looks like from the outside we are bleeding. The administration has decided not to take into consideration the student populations safety. Just yesterday 7 September the robbers attached students at the classroom blocks many lost their phones and laptops a guy is still at the hospital after sustaining knife wounds at various parts of the body. The state of the central university is very bad”
The students are therefore calling on the administration and government to come to their aid to curtail the rampant killing happening on the campus.
