Robbery: UI Imposes partial curfew
Sequel to incidences of robbery recorded in her halls of residence, authorities of the University of Ibadan on Tuesday imposed a partial curfew on the campus.
The partial curfew which takes effect from Wednesday (14th August) is between 12midnight and 5 am.
This decision was taken at a meeting of the University Security Committee which reviewed the current security situation on the University of Ibadan.
A signed by the Vice-Chancellor Professor Idowu Olayinka says all students and members of staff must have means of identification when asked by security operatives.
According to the Vice-Chancellor, male visitors to the three female hostels (Awolowo Hall, Queen Idia Hall and Elizabeth hall) are to be received outside the halls while female guests will be screened. Olayinka added that any male visitors seen loitering around female halls beyond 8:30 pm will be taken as suspect.
Recall that two female hostels at the university had been invaded by thieves who robbed and injured both male and female students in the process.
