Students of the Taraba State University (TSU) have condemned the incessant theft in their hostels since the resumption of activities at the institution.
According to the students, thieves have been breaking into their hostels and whisking away valuable items cooking gas cylinders and electronics, among others.
Accusing the management of the institution of keeping quiet on the matter, the students called on the Nigeria Police to come to their rescue and save their property.
A 200-level student who narrated her ordeal to Punch said, "Our rooms were broken into and our gas cookers, cooking utensils and other property that we left in school were all taken away."
She claimed that the food items she left behind during the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) strike were stolen due to the loose security measures employed by the institution.
"Everything we left in the dormitory was looted, including the ceiling fans belonging to the school, it's a sad experience indeed," another student who pleaded anonymity said.
An affected also said, "I was surprised when we stepped into our room, the whole room was swept clean as if the school has no security."
The students called on the students union government (SUG) of the university to mount pressure on the management swiftly, to set up a committee to investigate the matter and punish the offenders.
When contacted, a member of the security personnel of TSU said the management would leave no stone unturned in looking into the happening.
He promised that the school authority and the security have been briefed and would work towards punishing the perpetrators.
