Armed Robbers Repeat Attack on Ogun Poly Students, Kill One, Wound Nine

Students of the Gateway Polytechnic, Sapaade have been attacked again, barely four days after the Ogun State Police Command claimed to have arrested three armed robbers involved in the robbery operation and raping of the students.

The incident led to the loss of the life of one student.

Also, nine other students sustained gunshot injuries in the robbery incident.

KAKAKIOODUA had reported that students of the institution and indigenes protested the robbery and rape of female students of the polytechnic by the hoodlums.

Following the students’ protest last Tuesday, the management shut down the institution for three days to restore normalcy.

The Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alamutu, also held a meeting with the student leaders over the rising tension around the students’ communities.

Days after, the police said it had arrested three of the armed gangs.

However, the suspected robbers returned to the troubled communities in the early hours of Saturday and attacked students.

The attack took place in the Larufi area of Ode.

In some of the viral videos of the attack on Instagram, shattered doors, broken windows and walls riddled with bullets were observed.

Two lecturers confirmed the attack to newsmen.

One of the lecturers, who does not want his name in print described the incident “as a calculated operation.”

The institution’s Head of Public Relations, Adedayo Folorunsho, declined comment on the attack.

She, however, said, “the security agencies should be allowed to do their job.”
