Hoodlums rape our disabled pupils says Cheshire home management

The management of Cheshire Home for the disabled and less privileged, Ibadan, Oyo State on Saturday lamented incessant attacks by suspected hoodlums.

It deplored recurrence of hoodlums invading the home to steal items donated by good Samaritans and mindless defiling of some of their female residents.

An Assistant Coordinator, Cheshire Home, Ibadan, Mr Kayode Lawal who painted the negative occurrences when officials of the Nigerian Shippers Council, South-West zone, visited to make donations to the home, said four attacks were recorded in few months.

Lawal particularly noted that the invasions and assault on residents usually occurred whenever groups and individuals visited the home to make donations.

He pointed out that the vulnerability of the home to invasions was not unconnected with the seeming isolation of the community and it being surrounded by bushes.

Asked what security measures had been taken to stem the tide, Lawal said the various assaults were reported to the police with request to patrol inside the home from time to time.

Assistant Director, NSC South West zone, Mr Uche Nwogu, who led the Shippers’ Council team, urged the Cheshire management to efficiently utilise the items donated to improve the lives of the less privileged residents. (Punch)
