A 19-year-old National Diploma, ND, student of Otefe Polytechnic, Oghara, Delta State, Esther Oteri, is battling for survival at the Delta State University Teaching Hospital, after an armed robber damaged her face with bullets during operation.
The sad incident happened around 7pm on February 18, a night to her matriculation day.
A source said Oteri had gone out to retrieve her matriculation gown from a dry-cleaner. On getting there, she saw a gunman right in the dry-cleaner’s office.
The terrified girl screamed ‘Jesus’ and the robber who was stealing at the wash man’s office, shot her for daring to raise the alarm.
He ran away after dispossessing her of her phone when she fell to the ground.
The 100 level student was rushed to DELSUTH by passersby.
A staff of the plastic surgery team, told Daily Post that the Maxilofacial and Ophthalmology team were battling to revive her as she lost her left eye due to fracture.
