It is not safe at night say Fiji National University Nasinu campus students.

Students say the bus stops are quite risky at night as there have been incidents where phones and bags have been snatched.

First-year student Alumita Qeremaitoga said a friend of hers had her phone snatched at the bus stop at night.

“I don’t think it is safe at night because, there are not many people around at night and there is not enough lighting,” she said.

Ulamila Biudole and Losalini Raluve also said that they have heard of such stories and they felt scared when walking alone.

Shayal Shivani said she avoided the bus stop situated close to Delainamasi Government School.

“I totally avoid that bus stop, the one near the primary school. It is isolated and scary. Also the one at the top, I rarely go there alone,” she said.

Ajnesh Chand said although he had not personally experienced anything, he was wary at night.

Timoci Togei who lives directly opposite the FNU campus said it shocked him to hear that there were mugging incidents in the area.

“I have been here for more than 25 years and in this time there has not been a serious crime in the area,” he said.

Meanwhile, a social media post claimed that on Monday, September 9, a young woman studying at the university in Nasinu was chased by a group of men at Nasinu and was sexually abused. The writer of the post claimed they had rescued the woman from the traffic lights at Kinoya.

Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro said no such report has been received at the Valelevu Police Station since September 7.
