A final year female student of The Polytechnic Ibadan, Omolola Senbanjo, was, on Monday morning, shot by suspected armed robbers.

The 26-year-old student of the Accountancy Department was shot in her room around 3.00 a.m. while praying for her final examinations.

The robbers, numbering about 25, were said to have stormed Kola Oyewuwo Fodacis area, on Adeoyo Hospital road, Ibadan and raided several houses.

An eyewitness told the Nigerian Tribune that the deceased was studying in her apartment when the robbers attacked her.

According to the eyewitness, the robbers thought the deceased was trying to catch a glimpse of the situation when they shot her.

She was said to have been hit by the bullet, which killed her.

When contacted, the acting Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), ASP Daniel Oboyi, confirmed the incident and said investigation was going on.

He said that policemen were contacted by a neighbour, but did not give adequate information on the particular area.

He disclosed that before the patrol team got to the exact area, the suspected armed robbers had escaped.

“Policemen were at the area, but did not know the exact area where the robbers were operating,” he said.

He urged the people of the state to always give the police adequate and genuine information that could lead to stem the activities of armed robbers in the state.
