The Obafemi Awolowo University student who was attacked by armed robbers in accommodation finally gave up the ghost because the school’s hospital refused to attend to him prior to the school’s hospital policy.
The armed robbery attacked which lasted for more than two hours happened on the 22nd of December at an off campus hostel, Adam and Eve in ile ife.
Abiodun Babalola, the deceased was bleeding to death from injury sustained by the machete cut inflicted on him by the armed robbers. He was subsequently rushed to the school’s clinic after the robbery duration but he couldn’t be treated there. He was then rushed to OAU teaching hospital where the hospital demanded to see an identity card before any administration of treatment.
Online reports has it that Abiodun came to school for a test scheduled on 23rd December. When he was reported to OAUTH on 23rd, the hospital management sought for his friends in school at the test venue to come and identify him before aiding him.
Abiodun died on 23rd december after loosing piles of blood.
Students blame the school’s new policy that limits number of students in the secured school hostel therefore pushing 70% of students to off-campus hostels which are unsafe.

“So… My friend was killed in a robbery during the early hours of December 22. He was supposed write a test and go home to meet his parents. But he was killed by wicked people. What more do you want after robbing?? Why do you have to kill???. So it was a robbery in Adam and eve hostel, ilé ife. It lasted 2 hours. They attacked his room, my question is why do they have to injure him, by hitting him with a cutlass on the head. He was rushed to the school clinic after the robbery operation. But he couldn’t be treated there, he was transferred to the oauth, by this time he had lost so much blood. But still, these ma’fuckers were still requesting for his Id card, without even administering any first aid. They had till wait to daybreak, went to his test venue. Went to his test venue to see if they could get any of his proof of identification,and to get some of his friends. By this time, doing all this… It was too late. They killed my friend; Abiodun Babatola a.k.a temur. All these might not have happened if he was staying on campus, in a hostel in the school premises, where there’s security. But ever since the selfish school management decided to send 90% of the population of students to town… Were they thinking of all these?????????.”
