Robbers reportedly raided New Hall hostel of the University Of Ibadan (UI) on Sunday again. According to a report by The Nation, the robbers invaded the hostel around 2 a.m and ‘axe down the door leading to the hostel containing four blocks, two of which accommodate males and the other two, females.’
This occurred after a similar experience at Awo Hall of the premier institution. “They had a struggle entering into the hostel because the security in New Hall is actually tight.
“The bang we heard when the door was axed down already told us that something was coming for us. “But we didnt know what it was and we were wondering where the securities and potters were at this time,” a postgraduate student told The Nation.
The robbers were said to have demanded for phones, laptops and money. According to our source, one guy whose iPhone was collected put up a struggle with the robbers and sustained a machete wound.
“He was rushed to the health centre,” she stated. The source revealed that the robbers took to their heels at the approaching sound of sirens.
The Nation reports quoting the source said it wasn’t until after the operation that students found where the security officials and hostel workers were tied up and gagged, our source revealed.
