Robbers Killed Student Because Of iPhone

A 300-level accounting student of the Obafemi Awolowo University [O.A.U], Ile-Ife, Abiodun Babalola, was attacked and killed by suspected armed robbers who in the early hours invaded his hostel on Sunday.

Speaking to our correspondent on Monday, two residents of the Adam and Eve Hostel, Parakin, Ile-Ife, who pleaded anonymous, said the robbers, who are with machetes and charms, attacked the hostel around 2am on Sunday and moved from one room to other rooms, and dispossessed the residents of their belongings.
One of the sources explained, “Abiodun was in another student’s room when the robbers arrived. 
He was attacked with a matchet cut in the head because he refused to release his iPhone to them.
The late Babalola, it was learnt, was not in his room when the robbers invaded the hostel located on the outskirts of the town.
“They were just two in the room when the robbers entered there but I cannot ascertain the number of the robbers, because they were many.
“Many other residents of the hostel also lost their belongings to the robbers. I also lost money to them. 
Many people lost mobile phones and other valuables too. Some other students were injured by the robbers.
“But his (Abiodun’s) injuries was severe. He bled for hours before he died. He didn’t receive medical attention early. 
He eventually died at the Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital, Ile -Ife, around in the early hours.”
The spokesperson for the Osun State Police Command, Folasade Odoro, said the command had commenced investigations into the matter.
She noted that the perpetrators would be apprehended and made to face the consequences of their action.
