Gangster War! Three Die In UNICAL Cult Clash

Activities at the University of Calabar were on Friday disrupted following a gangster war, which claimed three lives.

The three students who lost their lives were said to be members of rival cult groups.

Southern City News learnt that one of the victims was shot dead by the gate where the university’s generator is located, while another one was killed by unmasked gunmen around the new Education Block, which is behind the library complex.

An eyewitness, who identified herself only as Ambo, said a third victim was shot dead close to the small gate by Goldie Street, with the blood stains still visible on the road as of 6pm on Friday.

Southern City News learnt on Sunday that the cult fight, which had been ongoing within the university’s male hostel premises for some weeks, became violent on Friday.

The eyewitness said, “Shots were fired; a guy was chased up to the Education Block. I guess he had a gun in a bag, which he threw away, but he was still being chased by students and security operatives.

    “I learnt he was later caught; it is a sad situation. The first student was gunned down close to the power house.”

But when contacted, the Cross River State Police Public Relations Officer, Irene Ugbo, said only one student died.

Ugbo said the Commissioner of Police in the state had given a directive that policemen should be drafted to strategic places within UNICAL to restore and maintain calmness.
