The Director of the Public Communication of the institution, Mr. Olatunji Oladejo, who confirmed the unfortunate incident, said two students were injured but were later rushed to the University’s health center for treatment.
Oladejo further disclosed that Campus Security Service coupled with combined efforts of the policemen from Bodija, Sango and Ojoo and Operation Burst rushed to the scene of the incident but the thieves had escaped.
Students of the hostel revealed the local security personnel of the institution guarding the hostel were overpowered and praying while the robbery was ongoing.
