“The cult clash between AY and Vagas cult groups happened outside NDU campus and not inside examination hall as alleged.”———————————–
The Bayelsa State Police Command on Wednesday denied the killing of three students of the Niger Delta University in Wilberforce Island at Ammassoma community, Southern Ijaw Local Government Area of the State.
There were reports that three students lost their lives in a bloody cult clash in the University within the week.
The Bayelsa State Police Command spokesman, Alex Akhigbe, said the report was false and unfounded.
“It is a calculated attempt to cause apprehension and incite students against the school authority,” Mr. Akhigbe said.
According to the police spokesperson, the cult clash occurred outside the campus of the Niger Delta University, two students suspected to be members of rival cults were not killed but sustained machete cuts on the head and arm.
“The cult clash between AY and Vagas cult groups happened outside NDU campus and not inside examination hall as alleged.
“One of the cultists sustained machete cut injury on his forehead, while in another clash, one 100-level student had his palm severed. No life was lost in the two cult-related incidents.
“The people of the state, particularly the authority and students of the NDU are advised to disregard the reported killing as security agencies in the state are working tenaciously to provide and sustain the existing peace and security in the state,” Mr. Akhigbe stated.
