Technical University of Mombasa students on Wednesday, November 13 sent the Makupa Police Staion Officers into hiding after packing their books and taking to streets in protest as a sign of airing their grievances.
The Students marched across the Mombasa streets as sources claimed they were targeting Makupa Police Station.
A student at the Technical University of Mombasa who preferred the identity kept anonymous said, they decided to storm the station with increased insecurity in the area being the main reason.
A source from the University stated, “Two days ago, we lost two of our comrades to thugs. As if this was not enough to warrant security reinforcements in the area, just yesterday, two other students were mercilessly butchered by machete-wielding thugs and are currently fighting for their lives. We’ve had enough.”
According to reports, a gang identified as ‘Matejjas’ has been giving the campus and its enviro sleepless nights.
The student further stated that the officers disengaged from the fracas to avoid the fate of the four police officers who found themselves in trouble after footage of them battering a JKUAT student went viral.
