In the last few days, there have been reported cases of massive killings in Kogi State University (KSU) as cult groups wreak havoc on students.

A report puts the killings in the institution at 13 as on Monday.

The management of the institution is yet to react to the killings, but some students of the school have been venting their anger over the inability of the school’s authority to handle the issue and bring the cultists to book.


Twitter is littered with various reports by students of the institution calling for prayers over massive cult killings in KSU.

A student of the school who goes by the name, Labzy Usuff on Twitter said: “They’ve been continuous killings in Kogi state University yet the management did not do anything about it.”

Another student, who simply preferred to be called by the name, Chemical Boy, lamented that that on November 1, a student was shot dead, the same day a student of the University of Benin was shot dead by cultists.


Sources in the school alleged that 10 students were killed in one day by cultists with several students resorting to prayers and calling on the public to pray for the institution.

When PM News reportedly contacted DSP William Ovye Aya, the Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Kogi State Police Command, he said it could not be true that about 13 people have been killed in the school but later called back to the state that only five students were killed in separate attacks during the weekend.

Aya said it was cases of homicide and that the police were investigating the matter. According to him, from the look of things, the attack was cult-related as the five students killed were butchered with machetes.


Below are some of the tweets from Students of the school who are distraught over the matter.
