Unitech students concerned with safety on campus

UNITECH students yesterday conducted a Forum with the school administration to address the issue of Safety and security of students while on campus, following an armed hold up in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
According to UNITECH’S Student Representative Council President, Mr David Kelma, a group of fully armed youths, believed to be from the nearby settlement, entered the school premises through a broken fence in the early hours of Wednesday morning and held up a final year student in his room and walked away with 5 laptops all belonging to final year students.
He said word of the holdup spread quickly and eventually other male students mobilised and gave chase to the gang but they had to retreat after the suspects fired at the students, fortunately no one was injured.
Frustrated as to why there was no security personnel around that particular section of the school, the students then fronted up at the University’s Security Base and had a heated argument with security officers..
The students have asked the University’s Administration to seriously look into this as this was the first incident that involved criminals with guns whilst the students’ safety and security should be of utmost importance to the Administration.
The matter has been reported to the police and investigations are currently underway.
