Ibadan—Three Fulani men were, yesterday, paraded along with other suspects for armed robbery by the Oyo State Police command.

The suspects (names withheld) were alleged to have been involved in series of robbery operations at Ajebamidele-Atogun road in Oyo State.

Also paraded by Mr. Leye Oyebade, the Police Commissioner, was a male student of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso, who allegedly broke into female hostels, raped and stole their properties.

About a week ago, students of the institution protested on major roads in Ogbomoso, calling on the police to check raping of female students in their hostels.

Asked why he took to breaking into female hostels, the 400-level student of the Department of Transport, said he only stole laptops and other items.

He added that the other two suspects paraded with him were not thieves but buyers of the items he stole.

He said: “The toy gun does not belong to me. It was left behind by my sister, who was staying with me. Some people come to my room to play game and they use the toy.”
