The Tai Solarin University of Education (TASUED), Ogun State has suspended on-going second semester examinations following the recent robbery and rape of four female students.

Suspected armed robbers had invaded private female hostels of the school in the early hours of Tuesday, dispossessed the occupants of their valuables and allegedly raped four students.

The suspension of the examination is contained in a statement issued on Wednesday by TASUED’s Registrar, Mr. Dapo Oke, and released in Abeokuta.

Oke explained that the institution’s security unit swung into action immediately it got wind of Tuesday’s unfortunate incident which took place at about 2a.m.

“The university condemns in strong terms incessant attacks on students, particularly the dimension of rape.

“The university assures students, parents and guardians of its efforts in conjunction with the state government and security agencies to ensure that the welfare and security of students remain a priority,” Oke stated.

The students’ community had been under siege by armed robbers in the past week.

A student who pleaded anonymity noted that robbery incidents had been recurring in the Abapawa community of Ijegun where many of the students live.

She alleged that robbers also invaded a hostel of 22 rooms few weeks back.
