13 Student Killed as Cultists Goes on a Killing Spree in Kogi State University
No fewer than 13 students of the Kogi State University, Ayingba, have been hacked down by unidentified assailants suspected to be members of a secret cult.
The management of the institution are yet to react to the killings, but some students of the school have been venting their anger over the inability of the school’s authority to handle the issue and bring the cultists to book.
Among those killed were Oloruntoba Godwin, a 300-level student of Geography and Ajikeye Richard of the department of Accountancy, also a 200-level student. Both students are said to be indigenes of Ijumu Local Government Area of kogi state.
Injured students were rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment, just as many others fled the town for fear of being killed.
When the university PRO Joseph Edegbo was contacted, he declined comment on the issue, saying it was a ‘’very sensitive issue”.
The Commissioner of Police in Kogi State, Hakeem Busari, confirmed the incident, saying that only three students were killed in the attacks.
He said no arrest has been made so far but that crack detectives have been drafted into the school to put an end to the killings.
