Fijian students studying at the University of the South of the Pacific’s (USP) Emalus campus in Vanuatu are safe despite an armed robbery Monday.
In a statement USP said there were 34 Fijian students at the campus and 19 of them live on campus in the Halls of Residence but none were involved in the incident.
USP said security staff and students were threatened and it has reviewed its security manpower and there are plans to install full perimeter security fence.
Also the number of security staff on night duty has now been increased from two to four.
USP said that because of the darkness and confusion, it has still not been established as to what kind of weapons was used and Vanuatu police are still investigating the matter.
The Island Sun reports last Monday gunmen came in through the campus gate held the security on duty at gun point and advanced into the computer lab where they stole belongings and quickly left.
