Fear has gripped some University of Ibadan (UI) students residing at Agbowo community, Batika, and Agricola, as robbers kill one of them during their attack.
The fear started when the aforementioned communities had in the past been invaded by robbers who carted away phones, laptops, and other expensive gadgets from the students after they had reportedly shot two persons.
The students’ fears were heightened on Saturday when robbery involving an okada rider happened.
Gabriel, one of the UI students who are gripped by fear said he and his colleagues at his hostel could not sleep all through the night as they heard gunshots for hours.
He said, “The okada rider did not want them to take away the motorcycle and as that was going on the passenger jumped off and fled the scene. Sensing that the okada rider’s resistance might put them in danger, one of them brought out a gun and shot him.”
Another resident of the area who declined to give his name said he and his mates did not sleep at all through the night because of gunshots.
He said, “The killing happened about 8:05 pm and we all rushed inside. But shortly after that, we heard a siren and gunshots which we believed should be from security agents.”
The Police Public Relations Officer in Oyo State Command, Adewale Osifeso, didn’t pick calls from our correspondent. Osifeso did not also respond to the text messages and chats sent to him on the matter.
