A final year student of Benue State University, Nate Nyiyongo was yesterday murdered by suspected cultist.
An eye witness who pleaded anonymity told Peoples Daily that the incident happened around 7pm.
According to him, the cultist chased the final year student of Political Science from outside the University campus and allegedly axed him to death in front of the Library.
Another student lamented over the rising wave of cultism in the institution, noting only last week, a cultist was seen openly showing in the campus.
He lampooned management of the University for their failure to handle the situation, alleging that some children of management staff were members of cult groups.
An effort to get the comment of the University Information Officer on the incident failed as his phone was permanently switched.
Similarly, the Vice Chancellor of the school Prof. Msugh Kembe refused to respond to calls and text messages to his phone.
Police Public Relations’ Officer DSP Catherine Anene confirmed the incident on phone, saying that one student was killed in Benue State University campus.
