Suspected cultists invaded the Benue State University (BSU) Makurdi campus, and killed a 400 level student Isaac Nater Nyiyongu, to death. Read previous report here

According to one of the students, the incident happened around 7 pm on Wednesday night.

“The cultists chased the final year student of Political Science from outside the university campus into the campus, shot sporadically into the air while the security men scampered for safety. The deceased student was chased through the gate down to the school library where they caught up with him and axed him mercilessly until he gave up. Indeed, the cult members had a field day because no one could go closer”

Spokesperon of the State Police Command, DSP Catherine Anene, confirmed the incident saying that one student was killed in Benue State University campus.

The Vice-Chancellor of the university, Professor Moses Kembe, who also confirmed the killing said the cultists took advantage of the ongoing strike action.

Prof Moses Kembe, Vice Chancellor of the university held a press conference at the BSU Senate Chambers on Thursday, 13th March, 2020, where he said that the management had resolved to take proactive measures to avert reoccurrence.

Among the measures include

”Entry into the university is henceforth restricted to the three main gates at the eastern and western wings and the College of Health Sciences;

“All university visitors must present proper identification to the security personnel at the gate;

“Staff and students must visibly display their identification cards at all times especially while on campus;

“Security staff are mandated to carry out stop-and-search on persons with suspicious behaviour while on campus,” the Vice Chancellor announced.

Kembe, who described also blamed parents and guardians for standing in the way of university management in addressing the problem of cultism.

“Another problem is that when a student suspected to be a cultist is handed over to the Police for prosecution, people come to bail them. And in most cases, their parents or guardians,” the Vice Chancellor said, adding they will “swear to the heavens that their children are not involved.”

Residents of Imo State, especially Orlu town and Owerri municipal, on Tuesday, stayed indoors to observe the sit-at-home order issued by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in solidarity with its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who appeared in court today.

It was gathered that the state secretariat, motor parks, schools, banks, shops and markets across the major cities were all shut down.

Even the Imo State University junction, Government House Roundabout, Control Post Roundabout, Warehouse junction Roundabout, Ikenegbu, Mbari, Douglas, Okigwe Road, and Wethedral Roads, were scanty.

In Orlu, the ever-busy Banana junction and Okwudo junction were more like ghost towns.

A journalist, Mr Martin Nwoke, in Owerri North Local Government Area of the state, made a passionate appeal to the Federal Government to release Nnamdi Kanu.

He said Imolites and the people of southeast states were the ones suffering the heat of the order.

Nwoke said, “In this part of the world, everything we do here involves money. I am begging President Buhari to pity us and free Nnamdi Kanu.”

A lawyer, Barr. Emeka Obi, told our correspondent that he could not go to file a court process due to non-availability of transport, while children, who could not go to school, resorted to playing football on the streets at Akwakuma.
