Ekene Dili Chukwu transport company, on Thursday, issued a formal apology to the parents and students of Holy Rosary College Enugu over last Saturday’s robbery attack, however, the transport firm still maintains that the students were neither hurt nor sexually molested.
Female students on the Lagos-bound bus claim say the assailants, robbers who had attacked the bus, had done more than fleece them for petty change, alleging that they had been gang raped along the Ijebu Ode expressway in Ogun state.
However, police officers on the scene claim that neither the female students of Holy Rosary College nor the driver had filed a rape or sexual assault report.
Speaking to newsmen on the robbery attack, the transport company’s legal adviser, Mr. Frank Obayagbona, said the sole focus of the EDC transport firm is ensuring the students overcome the trauma of being robbed by armed men.
“Our company sympathises with the students and their parents for the inconvenience, emotional and psychological trauma they may have subjected to as a result of the unfortunate incident,” Obayagbona said.
