FEAR GRIPS UI COMMUNITY AS GUNMEN INVADE STAFF QUARTERS, KILL NECO STAFF
Armed robbers have invaded staff quarters of the University of Ibadan, killing Mr Vincent Odinko, an occupant of one of the buildings. The sad incident happened last Friday night, according to reliable sources.
The night marauders 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) until his untimely death. 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 at press time, it was learnt that the robbers took away the laptop and mobile phones of the occupants. The wife is said to be a staff of the university.
Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in Oyo State, Adewale Osifeso, said the command has launched an investigation to track down Odinko’s killers.
A member of the university community who spoke to newsmen in confidence 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.
