LAUTECH Student Killed by Hostel Night Guard
A 500-Level Electrical Electronics Engineering student of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomosho has been killed by a security guard attached to Bumbest Hostel in Ogbomoso, Oyo State.
The student, Temitope Bamidele, was allegedly shot and killed by a physically-challenged night guard working in the hostel after a hot argument ensued between the two in front of the hostel.
The incident occurred around 11pm on Sunday when the deceased, an indigene of the town, was dropped off at the hostel from a party which he attended.
Temitope was shot in the stomach by the security man who left him in a pool of his own blood for hours before he was rushed to Bowen Teaching Hospital where he died.
The guard who was subsequently arrested by the Police however said that he killed the victim in self defence as he was attacked him first.
