Some persons suspected to be cult members, on Sunday, invaded the female hostel of Benue State University, Makurdi, rapping no fewer than 20 female students in the process.
It was gathered that the gang members stormed the Technical Block of the female hostel about 10.00pm, beating and raping the girls, before carting away their valuables.
Tribune reports that armed men successfully carried out the operation without interference by the university security operatives .
It would be recalled that a female student of the university was raped about a week ago by a group of young men numbering four, when she was returning from where she had gone to read around 9.00 pm.
Also, about three weeks ago, a 100-level female student was said to have been shot on campus by unknown gunmen, with her iPad, phones and cash snatched.
Following the developments, female students of the university, on Tuesday, marched in protest to the office of the Vice Chancellor, Professor Charity Angya, insisting they needed an explanation on why the attacks were directed at them.
The Vice Chancellor, who assured on security beef-up, also followed the protesting students into their hostel, while about seven students who were wounded in the last attack were said to have been taken to the school clinic for treatment.
Dean, Students Affairs, Professor Armstrong Adejoh, confirmed the developments, but insisted it was an internal security issue.
