Abia varsity undergraduate dies during cult clash

The Abia State Government confirmed on Monday the death of an Abia State University student during a cult clash over the weekend.

Briefing newsmen on Monday, after the week’s State Executive Council meeting chaired by the state governor, Alex Otti, the Commissioner for Information and Culture, Okey Kanu, said, “It has come to the notice of the state government about skirmishes in Abia State University, Uturu, between student groups where a student lost his life.

“Some remedial actions have been taken to return normalcy (in the institution). The state government has dispatched some security agencies to Abia State University Uturu.”

He advised students to refrain from violence and face their studies.

Reports have it that tensions are high at the school following a renewed outbreak of violence between two rival cult groups, which left a 400-level student dead.

Eyewitnesses said that the victim, who is a 400-level History and International Relations student, was attacked by members of a rival group within the university area, which led to his death.

However, this incident has significantly escalated tensions on campus after the cult clash.

All efforts to get school authorities to speak were not possible due to a bad network.

However, the state Commissioner of Police, Kenechukwu Onwumelie, said the police are aware of the matter and “is investigating the incident.”
