Some daredevil armed robbers have attacked staff quarters of the University of Ibadan, killing an occupant of one of the buildings, Mr Vincent Odinko.
The sad incident, according to information gathered, happened last Friday night.
It was learnt that the robbers broke into the boys quarters (BQ) of a staff building where the man lived with his family.
The deceased worked in the SSCE Internal Unit, Ibadan branch of the National Examinations Council (NECO), while his wife is said to be a staff of the university.
He was said to be working on his laptop in the night when the armed bandits broke into his home.
Though details of how he was killed were unavailable as of press time, it was learnt that the robbers took away the laptop and mobile phones of the occupants.
Oyo State Police Commamd spokesperson, Adewale Osifeso, comfirmed the incident, adding that the command has launched an investigation to track down the perpetrators.
A member of the university community who spoke with The Nation on condition of anonimity described the development as “extremely disturbing.”
The resident wondered why an institution with perimeter fencing, good security architecture and personnel can be experiencing security breaches that even led to killing.
