CAMPUS SIGNAL | Cultists Behead 2 Students of ABSU, Use Heads as Goal Posts [PHOTOS]

Two students of Abia State University, Uturu were beheaded by a group of men suspected to be cultists who subsequently used their heads as goalposts, The Trent reports.

The incident which happened in the night of Saturday, March 12, 2016 has attracted heavy presence of security personnel in the school.

It was learnt that the roommate of the deceased students sustained severe injuries from machete cuts by the hoodlums at Chi-Doo Lodge along the Uturu-Afikpo road.

The deceased identified as Ebuka Nwaigbo, a 300 level student of the Department of Estate Management,  and Samuel Ethelbert,  300 level student of the Department of Political Science.

They were reportedly killed by members of a rival cult group who were on a revenge mission for one of their members  killed last month.

A  source,  who craved anonymity, said  the cult groups – Burkina Faso and Mafia – had engaged each other in a battle of supremacy  for years in the university.

He said, “Last month, one Collins Agwu, a member of  Burkina Faso, was gunned down by the Mafia.

“His colleagues (Burkina Faso) decided to retaliate  by killing members of the Mafia.

“That night they came to the lodge  on  four motorbikes carrying four persons each and they forced themselves in when one of the students living there came out to buy Indomie Noodles.

“They beheaded their targets while the third person, their visitor,  was seriously wounded.

“After killing them they carried their heads and bodies in a sack bag and took it to a playground where they (cult boys) normally play football near the school gate and mounted their heads as goalposts.”

When contacted, the  Abia State Police Public Relations Officer, Ezekiel Onyeke Udeviotu, confirmed the incident, adding that the state Commissioner of Police, Joshiak Habilah had ordered the Criminal Investigation Department to commence investigation into the matter.

He said: “We are willing to invite any member of the public with any useful information that could lead to the arrest of  criminals to our office if such a person is afraid of giving the information to police officers.”

Below are graphic photos of the deceased.
