It’s appalling the rate at which Students are robbed in Bori, Khana LGA. Every night, armed men will break into student’s lodge and carter away their valuables, it’s obvious indigenes of the area does not support development. Helpless students are the target of this gang of robbers and they rob more than 10 lodges in a night.
I’m a victim of this ungodly act, I have been robbed 3 times at gunpoint in Bori, twice on my way from school and the other at my lodge around 2:30am.
As a reasonable Ogoni man, I know that the core reason for siting the Polytechnic in Bori was to revamp the economic system of the area and to bring development close to the people but some unscrupulous elements are using the medium to unleash crime on innocent students that came all the way from various States to study.
It might interest you to know that the Anti Cultism squad in Bori only patrols in the day and at night everybody is left with no hope of seeing the next day, it’s a very sad incidence to sleep and be woken by sounds of another students screaming at the middle of the night and nobody comes to our aide because everyone is taking cover for fear of being a victim too.
Certain security measures should be taken immediately to avert this unholy event before it gets to the peak. special security numbers should be provided for students to call or text when they’re being attack in the night or most link roads leading to neighbouring communities should be barricaded for security purposes.
I want to appeal to the Rivers State Govt, Khana LGA Chairman and other stakeholders to quickly look into the security situation in Bori most especially at night and provide lasting solution to this menace because its the responsibility of Government to secure lives and properties of all citizens which was solemnly sworn to as their oath of office, students can not continue to be molested, kidnapped and robbed profusely every blessed day and night and Government is pretending not to know about it.
