A source explained that the killing may not be unconnected with the Thursday’s cult killing of a final year student of Political Science at the Benue State University.

The source said those who struck were on a reprisal to avenge the death of their member.

The varsity’s Public Relations Officer, Dr Joseph Fanafa, who confirmed the incident, noted that those killed were not students of the institution, noting that no student was missing.
