The9JaTREND gathered that an official of the Students’ Union Government of the institution was a victim of the clash.

It was also gathered that the killings happened last Friday.

The Students’ Union Government official was said to be a 400-Level student in the Faculty of Agriculture. He was said to have been killed at the Poultry Road Extension in Ekpoma.

The9JaTREND further gathered that the killings in the university community happened in less than 48 hours after one Eddy was reportedly beaten and left for dead by a group of persons for allegedly purchasing items with “fake bank alert.”

The news of Eddy’s beating was said to have been misconstrued as an attack by rival cult members to the effect that he was killed.

The misrepresentation of facts, however, reportedly led to a retaliation by a rival cult group, resulting in fatality of the two students on Friday.

When contacted, the Public Relations Officer of the Edo State Police Command, SP Chidi Nwabuzor, confirmed the killings.

According to him, yes, the command is aware of it and investigation is ongoing in the matter and some suspects have been arrested.
