Robbers storm female hostel; students robbed, raped

Armed robbers this dawn allegedly stormed the female hostel of the Asante-Mampong Midwifery and Health Assistant Training School, robbing the inmates of their properties and raping some of them in the process.

The robbers according to some of the students made away with their laptops, other digital gadgets, mobile phones and thousands of Ghana cedis.

The students who were raped reportedly fell unconscious and are currently on admission at a nearby hospital.

Police in the area have also been to the hostel and are investigating the incident.

A student who was nearly raped told Citi News that the robbers were armed with machetes and threatened to kill them if they did not comply with their demands.
