A final year student of Business Education at the Ishieke Campus of Ebonyi State University has been shot dead by suspected armed robbers.

The student, about 25 years, from Ishiagu in Ivo Local Government Area of the State, identified as Chinedu Linus was gunned down by the robbers while on rampage in his residence, Lucky City Hostels in the wee hours of Wednesday.

Narrating the incident when newsmen visited the area in company of the Special Adviser to the Ebonyi State Governor on Student Affairs, a student resident in the hostel who identified himself as Eric John said the sad event took place around 2 am on that day, adding that the diseased was the Student-overseer of the hostel, otherwise known as the Hostel President.

He said: “We were all sleeping around 1 to 2 am when we heard a knock on our gate. He came out as the president to actually know who was knocking, not knowing that they were already inside the hostel, probably through a ladder. He was having a piece of rod, probably to defend himself.

“I heard a kind of struggle. They took him into his room, dispossessed him of his Laptop and probably, other personal belongings, and pushed him outside and shot him. Thereafter, they broke into my room and robbed me of my Laptop, Phones and a sum of money I recently brought back from a journey.”

He noted that similar robbery incident was recorded on Sunday of the previous week in the hostel next to theirs where the robbers broke in at night into the room of the student who took custody of the funds raised by the student community in the area for payment of Electricity bill, and under gun point, dispossessed him of the money and other personal belongings.

He called on the government and School authorities to come to their aide as they have been deprived of means of survival in the school.

“There is an internal vigilante arrangement by the community here in which we pay N30
