Cultism is a menace across Nigerian universities
The menace of cultism has once reared its ahead in one of Nigeria’s universities.
This time, no fewer than 13 students of the Kogi State University, Ayingba, were murdered by suspected cult members.
The killings according to eyewitnesses started last week Friday, when nine students, including a 200-level female student and her boyfriend, were hacked down on the campus and at different points, Channels TV reports.
It was gathered that some of the victims were attacked on Stadium Road and Our Lady of Fatima’s Lodge where they were brutally murdered, and their body dismembered by their assailants.
They said it was a reprisal carried out by one of the cult groups whose leader, a student of Kogi State Polytechnic, Lokoja, was murdered by another cult linked to the university.
The cult group was alleged to have threatened to kill 12 Kogi University students in retaliation.
Some of the injured students are currently receiving treatment in various hospitals in the state while the student’s community is gripped with fear. Many of the students have travelled out of town for safety.
Confirming the incident, Commissioner of police in the state, Hakeem Busari, however, said only three students were killed as at the time of filing this report.
