The institution’s spokesman said that Ayeni lives in Bodija area Ibadan but went to see his mother in Ojoo when the armed robbers invaded the community.
“When the armed robbers had successfully operated in the area, they asked Ayeni to lead them to their other neighbors but he declined and in the process, they shot him in his leg.”
Soladoye said that Ayeni was taken to an undisclosed private hospital where they rejected him and in the process, he lost blood for over three hours which later resulted in his death.
“We are in sad mood as we speak. Such a successful and employer of labour at that age was killed. It is a great loss to the polytechnic and to the society because he was employer of labour,” he added.
