Armed robbers have killed a final year Student of the Department of Music Technology, the Polytechnic, Ibadan, Ebenezer Ayeni Thursday morning at the Ojoo area of Ibadan.
The Police public relations officer of the Oyo State Police Command, Adewale Osifeso confirmed the incident to journalists in Ibadan on Friday.
The public relations officer of The Polytechnic, Ibadan, Soladoye Adewole said that Ayeni’s death was a great loss to the institution and society, because the deceased was an employer of labour.
Ayeni, before his death, was the President of Christian fellowship in the institution and was said to be preparing for his wedding slated for next week Saturday in Ibadan.
The institution’s spokesman explained further that, Ayeni lives in Bodija area Ibadan but went to see his mother in Ojoo when the armed robbers invaded the community.
“When the armed robbers had successfully operated in the area, they asked Ayeni to lead them to their other neighbors but he declined and in the process, they shot him in his leg.”
Soladoye said that Ayeni was taken to an undisclosed private hospital where they rejected him and in the process, he lost blood for over three hours which later resulted in his death.
“We are in sad mood as we speak. Such a successful and employer of labour at that age was killed. It is a great loss to the polytechnic and to the society because he was employer of labour,” he added
