Unknown gunmen on Monday night stormed Plateau State University (PLASU) Bokkos and attacked students of Theatre Arts department who were said to be doing their production assignment.
Our correspondent gathered that the attackers also made away with the students laptops, and other personal effects while some of the girls were raped in the process.
It was learnt that the attackers shot in the air several times to scare people away before they engaged in the unfortunate operation.
A student who spoke on the condition of anonymity said the incident was sad and unfortunate, adding that students were no longer feeling safe within the school premises at night.
The student said that she particularly sympathized with the girls who were raped, saying that it was a most traumatic experience any girl could go through.
She called on the school authorities to boost security around the school premises at night, adding that the management should also take the effected girls for check up and other forms of rehabilitation.
When contacted, the school Public Relations Officer, John Agam, said he is waiting for briefing from the school security outfit before making any comment on the situation.
