Some armed men reportedly attacked the Obafemi Awolowo Hall of residence (Awo) in the University of Ibadan (UI) in the wee hours of Friday.

The Cable reports that witnesses said the attackers, numbering up to 10, stormed the hall around 1am and raided for almost two hours.

The hall porters were said to have done some inspection in the rooms by 11pm and when the students heard knocks on their doors, they thought the porters had returned and willingly opened the doors to the attackers.

At least five students are said to have sustained injuries inflicted on them by the attackers while many gadgets including phones and laptops were carted away.
