Students residing in Olympia Hostel have reached out to Campus Bee following an article we published about the Hostel’s custodian who was fired for stealing and selling students’ property. One of the residents, whose names have been withheld has confessed that Emma (fired custodian) has been stealing their property ever since he was hired.
Apparently, Emma is a youngin, just like Reuben the former custodian who Campus Bee busted for sexually harassing female students. According to this student, several colleagues lost property like laptops, TVs, among other valuable items.
“This issue of theft hasn’t started of recent. Emma has been stealing people’s items since last semester or the other semester…actually when he had just come. When we broke off for holidays he stole people’s things, actually including mine,” an Olympia resident told Campus Bee.
“Students lost laptops, they lost TVs, I lost a TV, people lost tablets, people lost phones, but mostly tablets, TVs and those other items.” The student added.
The male Olympia resident narrates that they have always found their property safe but ever since Emma came through, property has been disappearing in thin air. Emma, who has a master card that opens all rooms has reportedly been coordinating with the security guards to delete security footage which shows no record of him roaming around their rooms.
“Emma has access to people’s rooms, coz he has a master card. He enters any room he wants and he moves out. He just moves in moves out, so the person who has such access to people’s rooms and has no self control… coz he’s not an adult or he has any responsibility, practically he’s like in our age bracket.” The student narrated further.
After the number of students who lost property increased, they reached out to the hostel owner who they now accuse of offering no help.
“We reported to the boss, he actually told me that it is my roommate who took the TV yet my roommate left me in that room in the morning for his field trip down in the village. “ The bitter student, who now demands compensation added.
A one Ivan added: “They have been covering for him for a long time. He started stealing things from the very beginning. Their students who even reported early and they were taken for laps until they were not compensated because they claimed that they sold their items and they want hostel to buy for them new ones.”
We shall keep you posted.
