Some other students revealed that for a while the staff quarters have continued to be burgled at will  adding that one of their lecturers  was robbed in her house at the staff quarters.

She was said to be sleeping  at night when the robbers broke into her house somewhere at Kuti quarters, and made away with her laptop, handsets,and other valuables.

The acting Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase has said that the Nigerian Police will continue to do all it can to ensure that crime and criminals become a thing of the past in Nigeria.
