Around 1:00 am on Friday morning, July 12th, about 10 unmasked gunmen invaded the University of Ibadan with the sole purpose of robbing students.
Pada.com.ng (formerly known as Kingston Dome) confirmed the news with different victims of the robbery.
The robbers only attacked the biggest female hostel in the school, Obafemi Awolowo Female Hostel.
Boluwatife, 300 level student in the Faculty of Education and a victim narrated her experience to Pada.com.ng.
She said “The robbers tried to kidnap a girl but she was later found downstairs, seriously injured. I heard gunshots twice and lots of girls were jumping from the balcony not minding how tall the building is.”
We gathered that the robbery lasted for about an hour. UI security operatives were busy praying instead of defending the students. Operation Burst came two hours later and the Commissioner of Police in Oyo state arrived this morning.
Students have been complaining about the whole security issue in the University of Ibadan. This is coming after the management banned motorbikes from communting students commercially. Both the Nigerian Police and the management are trying to cover the story.
