HOODLUMS yesterday invaded the Federal College of Agriculture Akure, Ondo State killing one of the night guards Mr. Kayode Adeyemi 37 and reportedly raped about 16 female students of the college.

An unconfirmed source said that the hoodlums also kidnapped two female students. As news of the invasion spread, worried parents and guardians stormed the college yesterday to confirm what had become of their wards.
