Gunmen suspected to be robbers have raped four female students of the Tai Solarin University of Education (TASUED), Ijagun, Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State.

It was gathered that the hoodlums in the early hours of Tuesday invaded TASUED’s hostels at Abapawa, an area off the campus, and carried out the act.

The Deputy Governor of the state, Noimot Salako-Oyedele, alongside the Commissioner of Police (CP), Alamutu Abiodun, and Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Prof Abayomi Arigbabu, rushed to the university following the incident and later paid a visit to the victims before they were moved to the Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital (OOUTH), Sagamu.

Mrs Salako-Oyedele, who confirmed the incident in a post on her verified Facebook page, described the incident as “distressing and brutal.”

She wrote: “Earlier today (Tuesday), after receiving the distressing news about a robbery at some TASUED hostels and the brutal rape of four female students, His Excellency, Prince Dapo Abiodun, directed me to immediately visit the victims and the campus on a fact finding mission and to pledge the government’s support in ensuring this doesn’t happen again.

“I have visited the girls who are now being cared for and given the necessary support to heal from their trauma at the Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC) at OOUTH.”

She noted that, “Ensuring the safety and well-being of our students is of utmost importance. So, I subsequently had a crucial meeting with the management and students of TASUED. I was joined by the Ogun State Commissioner of Police, Mr Abiodun Alamutu, and the Commissioner for Education, Prof Abayomi Arigbabu, where we discussed concrete steps to bolster security measures and foster a safe environment on campus and the adjacent host community.”

She further said, “The Ogun State Government is committed to ensuring the safety of all citizens, and that our institutions remain safe spaces for learning and growth. The CP has promised that the police will leave no stone unturned in ensuring that the perpetuators are brought to book and justice prevails.”
