Armed Men Attack UI Female Postgraduate Hostel, Injure Students With Machetes by weyreypey: 10:01am On Aug 11
Sequel to the robbery incident at the Obafemi Awolowo Hall of the University of Ibadan, the postgraduate hostel of the same university was attacked on Sunday by armed men.

About seven men who were armed with machetes entered the female block of the Abdusalami Abubakar Postgraduate hall through a window passage and raided the first and second floor.

It was gathered that the security man on patrol was tied up by the armed men and they machete two male students who got in their way.

An eyewitness who narrated his experience, said, “They came in around 2 am.

“They were about seven. They were paired in twos, moving from a room to another, collecting people’s phones and laptops.

“They knew about this hostel, and they were so comfortable. They had time to operate.

“They tied up our security man. One of the two males who were alarmed and decided to come from their block to see the situation was machete on the head and the other received a machete cut on his hand.”

One of the female victims, a visually impaired postgraduate student told our correspondent that she was threatened by the armed men.

he said, “They burst into my room and they asked me for my phone, my money and my purse.

“They put a machete to my neck, that was the first time I would ever experience being threatened with a cutlass.

“Thank God they didn’t see my phone, they left my room after they discovered there was nothing to take.

Security is now a top priority everywhere. Anyone could be a robber/informant.

Somehow, I always felt safer in estates or university campuses. Wrong?

Skol with no adequate security despite signs of security threats from last robbery. Students are on their own. Imagine a university campus.

Can't Nigerian universities install CCTVs in such areas as hostels? Sometimes, one wonders at the quality of administrators running stuff in this country.

I think it's due to UI architectural design: The hostels are within d academics and d fence can easily be scaled by outsiders - unlike OAU where d hostels are isolated and non accessible 4rm d school fence...

It's time the school addressed that architectural flop...

It's painful this thing is happening in UI of all places. More disheartening is the fact that this is neither the first nor the second occurrence yet those in authority still feel they are suitable for the the position they are holding. If your life and properties are not safe inside University environment where else can you find a safe
harbor? Throughout my stay in UI, I never for once heard of a case as terrible as this. Everything happening in UI lately has shown the man at the hem of affairs is good only at rusticating students (even when no need calls for it), increasing tuition fees, supressing students' bodies and initiating policies that are hostile to the comfort and convenience of the university environment.
