 The DCI has now ordered the student to make a formal report at a police station near him then share the OB number with the DCI.

"Good evening... Kindly advise the victim to make a formal report at his nearest Police Station and then share the OB number with us. We will ensure that Justice is served," said a tweet by the DCI.

The student has since recorded a statement at Makupa police station and has already shared his OB number on twitter.
