Students of the Nnamdi Azikiwe Pharmaceutical School, in Agulu community, Anaocha Local Government Area of Anambra state are currently in a state of panic over the invasion of robbers in the area.

It has been reported that students are being robbed within and outside their hostels. They have cried out to appropriate authorities to find a solution to this.

A victim of the robbers told TheNation that students were under constant fear since the current semester in the school.

She said the first attack on her was in February when her lodge was burgled when the students were away to lectures.

She also added that the second experience was two weeks ago as she was coming back from evening class when the hoodlums on a bike snatched her hand bag and made away with her property.

A security official who pleaded anonymity confirmed the attack but said their hands are tied since the incidents did not occur within the school.

The security man maintained that the snatching of bags, handsets and way laying students on the way were new developments in the community.

According to him, “the next option is for the school authorities to liaise with the Agulu community vigilante group unit to protect the students within the hostel community from these hoodlums."
