AIT staff fighting for her life in Bayelsa after being robbed and shot at close range on her way home from Shiloh

A producer/reporter with Daar Communications in Bayelsa, Patience Owe is in
critical condition after being attacked by suspected armed robber.

According to Julius Bokoru, editor-in-chief at Izom Writers Review, he was
called to the scene of the violent robbery by one James Baridi around 10
pm on Saturday night, where they found the victim llying in pool of her blood.
It was learnt that the lone gunman trailed her from a Winners church where
she had gone to watch the livestream of Shiloh 2017. He showed the gun, took
her phone, jewelry and cash and then shot her at close range.

They rushed her to Tobis Hospital but doctors demanded for police report and
large sum of money. Read the rest below:

"Last night at about 10:40 I had an urgent call from James Baridi in an
area few metres from my house. When I went it was the fresh scene of
a rather violent robbery. A girl I would later identity as an AIT staff
was lying half-conscious in a pool of her blood. Witnesses said it was
a lone gunman who had trailed her from Shiloh. Just in front of her
house he showed the gun, took her phone, jewelry and cash. But the
animal didn't end there. He took steps backwards and shot her at
close range even as she gave him no problems.

Her landlady, James and I rushed her to Tobis Hospital at Akenfa. To
our surprise Animals were the ones administering that place. They
would not save her life except we provide a police report and a
wholesome amount.

We took her to another hospital at Igbogene, Himmei or thereabouts,
the people here were humans and they commenced treatment instantly
including fresh pounds of blood.

By morning we realized we needed to contact her family, but how? She
lives alone and her phones were gone. In the area no one knows much
about her except that she's a journalist for AIT. We also reported the
matter to the Akenfa police division
For a start, I called NUJ Bayelsa scribe Ebiowei Lawal who called her

Its been a very long day. Patience Owe will make it and we have God
to thank. Our prayers will remain with her"
