The FRCN training facility in Lagos was reportedly robbed by unidentified gunmen who also raped some female trainees
Tragedy struck at the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN) Training School in Lagos on Friday, September 5, 2014 when unidentified gunmen reportedly attacked the institution.
The assailants invaded the facility and raped some of the female trainees after dispossessing them of their belongings, Vanguard reports.
An eye witness reportedly said that the latest attack is the third of such in the school.
“The armed robbers were many. They attacked the school last week, last two weeks and now this week. They always rape the girls and dispossess others, including male students and workers on night duties of their valuables.”
Friday’s attack was said to be centered on the financial records offices and the new BOND FM station, which has a lot of new expensive transmitting devices.
A staff told Vanguard:
“Many of them broke into our offices, removed burglar-proofs, raped girls who were in training and living in our hostel. They collected money, phones and laptops. This is the third time this will be happening,”
The police spokesperson, Ngozi Braide, however allegedly said that no case of rape was reported:
“I just got to hear today that the place has been burgled three times. But they had never reported. It’s only today that an official complaint was lodged. No case of rape was reported. Nobody has come forward to say that she was raped,”
