Our correspondent gathered that two students were injured in the attack.

Four weeks later, another robbery incident was recorded during which some students were also injured at the Abubakar Abdulsalami Hall.

The institution in a release titled, “Security measures in Queen Elizabeth Hall, Queen Idia Hall and Obafemi Awolowo Hall”, said female students should also be screened at the porters’ lodge in the female hostels.

The vice-chancellor of the university, Idowu Olayinka, in the statement on Tuesday, said residents of the female hostels are to receive visitors outside their hostels.
