No fewer that three students of the Benue State University, Makurdi (BSU) were yesterday killed following a strife between members of rival cult groups in the School. Reports has it that the cultists who went on rampage first invaded a house in Logo 1, a suburb of Makurdi, where a male Student was gruesomely shot dead.
Impeccable sources within the vicinity revealed that the alleged killers numbering about 10 stormed the compound and headed straight to the victim's apartment where they opened fire on him repeatedly and thereafter spot sporadically into the air to scare residents.
Also, some unidentified gunmen suspected to be cultists struck at a house on Pever Agenga Street, Logo 2, close to Iwanger Clinic and killed a student later identified as Dennis Terna Gabin, a level 200 student of Biology of the same university.
As the situation later worsened, residents fled the area in droves for fear of being caught in the cross-fire.
Confirming the incident, the Police Public Relations Officer in charge of Benue State Command, ASP Philip Agena, said he has been adequately briefed, and that his men had been deployed to the area to forestall further break down of law and order.
