A FIRST YEAR student of the Midwifery Training School (MTS) at Mampong in the Ashanti Region has suffered the ordeal of having three stoutly-built male armed robbers gang-raping her in the full glare of her colleagues.
The dastardly act occurred around 12:30am of Thursday at the Adom Hostel at Mampong where a group of eight masked robbers had besieged the hostel, robbing the innocent students and satisfying their libidos as well.
Four other students in the hostel also suffered the trauma of having the robbers inserting their fingers in their vaginas in the presence of other students.
Two students who woke up to witness the eight robbers wielding deadly weapons in their room collapsed and were rushed to a hospital for treatment.
The runaway robbers, who were on a robbery spree at the hostel, managed to rob the students of their valuables including two laptops, mobile phones and undisclosed sums of money.
A student nurse who was at the scene told DAILY GUIDE that one of the students woke up around 12:30 am to urinate outside and the robbers, who were hiding at the scene, took advantage of that to enter the hostel.
The student noticed the presence of the hoodlums so she hurriedly raced back into the hostel but the gangsters caught up with her and took full control of the hostel.
The eight masked robbers, after getting access to the hostel, then at gunpoint, ordered the poor girls to surrender all their belongings, else they would be shot.
The hoodlums reportedly forcibly broke into twelve rooms in the hostel, robbing the students of their valuables including laptops, mobile phones and some undisclosed amount of money.
In the course of the robbery expedition which lasted for about 45minutes, one of the robbers ordered the poor first-year student to lie down on the floor, an order which she obeyed.
The robber then started raping the poor girl in the presence of her mates and after he had satisfied his libido, his two other colleagues also subjected the poor young girl to several bouts of sex.
Four other students that were wearing night gowns also were not spared by the fiendish-looking gangsters as they forcibly inserted their fingers in their private parts, amid wailings by the poor girls.
The hoodlums then tried breaking into another room to attack those girls inside it and in the course of breaking into the room, one of the robbers mentioned the name of one ‘Awudu’ to stop because they had spent much time at the place.
The robbers, wielding deadly weapons such as hammers, sharp knives and locally-manufactured pistols, then bolted with their booty, leaving no trace of where they fled to.
Minutes after they had left, the students called the police who rushed to the scene but the gangsters had by that time vanished with their booty, an eyewitness who looked traumatized stated.
The five poor students, including the first year student that was gang-raped, were then rushed to the hospital for treatment by their colleagues.
Meanwhile, DAILY GUIDE gathered that the students at Adom Hostel are living in fear following the deadly attack.
The paper learnt that most of the students are contemplating leaving the hostel for another hostel in the area where their safety could be guaranteed.
But sources hinted that the school’s management was working hard to intensify security at the Adom Hostel to avert another attack.
