Two young men have been arrested by the University of Calabar security personnel for snatching a phone worth N88,000 from a 100-level Computer Science student of the institution, Godwin Okoro.
The suspects identified as Mathias, 22, and Bassey Edet, 23 reportedly snatched the phone from the victim while he was on his way to withdraw money from the bank.
Upon being interrogated, Mathias confessed that the phone was sold for N10,000. He pleaded for forgiveness and pledged that the phone will be recovered from the person they sold it to.
The Vice-Chancellor of the university, Prof. Florence Obi who commended the security personnel for apprehending the victim on Wednesday April 21, said the suspects who are not students of the university have been harassing undergraduates on campus, especially in the hostels.
She also noted that the university had not yet recovered from the destruction of its facilities by hoodlums, who hijacked the #EndSARS protest on October 24, 2020.
“I want to commend the security men, who apprehended the suspects. This shows that the training sessions we have been organising for them are yielding results.
“The training was organised to sharpen their mental alertness so that they can carry out their duties effectively and creditably.
“I want to advise parents to always know the whereabouts of their children and the kind of company they keep.
“We know that things are hard; I want to encourage parents, who cannot afford university education for their children, to send them to learn a skill and be self-reliant.
“Learning a skill and fending for yourself is more dignifying, because we all pride ourselves when feeding from the dignity of our labour.”
The Vice Chancellor said the suspects would be handed over to security agencies for investigation and prosecution to serve as a deterrent to others.
