Another LASU student killed by suspected cultists

Damilola Damoche was the first to be killed last week

Another student of the Lagos State University (LASU), simply identified as Kabiru, was on Sunday night allegedly killed by suspected cultists.

Sources told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that Kabiru was shot dead at about 10:00 p.m. at Abeokuta St., Okokomaiko, Lagos.

Another student of the university, Damilola Damochie, a musician and 400 level Banking and Finance, was on Feb. 28 shot dead by suspected cultists at the institution’s main gate.

The sources alleged that the killing of Kabiru was a reprisal to the murder of Damochie.

“There are three main cult groups in LASU. They are Eiye, Buccaneer and Black Axe. Eiye and Buccaneer have lost one member each. The war is between the two groups now.

“Members of on the cult groups were celebrating the death of the opposition group member in a hotel, when police arrested them,’’ a source said.

Contacted, the Lagos State Police Spokesperson, DSP Ngozi Braide, confirmed the death of Kabiru, but did not say if he was a cult member.

Ms. Braide also confirmed that more than 20 persons have been arrested over the killing of Damochie.

She noted that the suspects were arrested at Beno Hotel, Isashi, Okokomaiko, Lagos, when the suspects were having a party.

“We are screening the suspects with a view to ascertaining their involvement in the killing of the student-musician. Anyone found to be involved will be prosecuted in court,’’ Ms. Braide said.

NAN reports that Damoche was killed by two suspected cultists on a motorcycle, on Feb. 28 at LASU gate.

    Nigerian boys have fish brain, wtf is cultisim? Do de share money there? Does it increase dier life span? Does it make them any better than the people they call jews. Instead of thinking of how to make money ,get a better life n get set 4 a brighter future ,they are still livn in the past. What a shame,shallow minds tho… Even our so called top goverment official are part of this,because they too are cultists , but carry out their evil acts with our future husbands/fathers/uncles/govs/presidents. If we must deal with issues like this we must start from the top.
