Two Edo University Students Shot Dead In Cult Reprisal Attack

Two undergraduates of Edo state government-owned, Ambrose Alli University (AAU), Ekpoma have been shot dead in a cult reprisal attack.

According to reports, one of the victims was an official of the Students’ Union Government (SUG) of the higher institution. The deceased SUG official was a 400-level student in the Faculty of Agriculture and was killed at the Poultry Road Extension in Ekpoma.

The killings happened barely 48 hours after one Eddy was beaten to death by a group of persons for allegedly purchasing some items with fake bank alerts.

Information on Eddy’s ordeal was misconstrued as an attack by rival cult members. The misrepresentation of facts led to a reprisal attack by a rival cult group, resulting in the gunning down of the two undergraduates.

Confirming the incident, the Edo Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Chidi Nwabuzor, said some suspects have been arrested while investigation into the incident has commenced.
