One person Killed, 3 others njured in fresh University Cult War

Tragedy struck at the University of Benin (UNIBEN) on Friday as a renewed cult clash claimed the life of a 500-level student of the institution.

According to reports, the student was shot dead inside the University campus, while three other students of the institution sustained various degrees of injury during the cult attack.

As of press time, it was reported that the injured students have been rushed to a hospital for treatment.

The cult clash reportedly began when the rampaging cult group members stormed the Anatomy Department back gate to kill their target before they proceeded to Physical Science and Laboratory Department.


It was gathered that the deceased student was shot at a close range in his car while the three others were shot while they were trying to escape.

The incident caused panic among the students and staff on the campus as they scampered for safety.

According to sources, the rival fight began in Ekiadolor area, a suburb of the school, some days ago during which about three persons were allegedly killed.

The fight later spread to the Ugbowo campus of the institution.

A viral video of the incident showed a red car with bullet holes. The body of a man was seen removed from the car and taken to the back of a pick-up van.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, SP Chidi Nwabuzor, said he was yet to be informed about the incident.

“I am yet to be briefed of such an incident. When I get the brief, I will let you know, but for now no information.”

It will be recalled that a few months ago a final-year student at the Hall 3 hostel of the university was shot dead in his room by gunmen.
