According to Punch, the gunmen who rode tricycles into the Corpers’ lodge around 1 a.m. on Wednesday, July 6, also stole valuables such as laptops, cell phones, and cash.



One of the corps members, identified as Emeka Emmanuel, described the incident as follows: “They arrived on a tricycle known as Keke and immediately began operations. They shone high-intensity torchlight everywhere, pounced with heavy iron on every door, and threatened to shoot us if we didn’t cooperate.”


A female Corps member, who also spoke on the condition of anonymity, said her phones, laptop, and cash were taken from her.

You know, most of us females used to sleep naked at that time of night, and the surprise attack caught us off guard. “They shone a torch through the window and threatened to shoot if the door was not opened quickly,” she explained.



“I have never heard of Corpers being deliberately targeted, raped, and robbed by criminals at gunpoint anywhere in Nigeria, even in the North, where insecurity is at its highest.” Is it because we are not from Akwa Ibom that no one could hear our cries and come to our aid?” wondered another female colleague.
