Students of the University of Uyo resident in a private hostel at Useh Offot, one of the host communities to the University are seething with rage over a robbery incident in their hostel, accusing the Police of shirking their responsibility of protecting lives and property.

Besides, the embattled students alleged that the Police refused to come to their rescue when hoodlums invaded the 48-room posh property penultimate Saturday and disposed them of their valuables despite several calls for helps.

The hoodlums reportedly numbering eight armed with guns and cutlasses, dressed in all black and covered their faces to conceal their identities, carted away their cash, phones and laptops, among other electrical gadgets running into millions of naira.

It was gathered that residents of the community mobilized to help the distressed students but their efforts proved abortive as the Police allegedly arrived at the scene after the robbery operations which reportedly lasted for well over 30 minutes.
