This will make your skin crawl, Two undergraduates of the Abia State University, Uturu, were on Saturday night hacked to death by suspected cultist and their heads were used as goalposts thereafter.
According to PUNCH, The deceased identified as Ebuka Nwaigbo, a 300 level student of the Department of Estate Management, and Samuel Ethelbert, 300 level student of the Department of Political Science, were until their death living at Chi-Doo Lodge along the Uturu-Afikpo road.
It was revealed by a source, who craved anonymity, that two cult groups 'Burkinafaso and Mafia - had engaged each other in a battle of supremacy for years in the University and that last month, one Collins Agwu, a member of Burkinafaso was killed by the Mafians. So his colleagues retaliated by killing two members of the Mafian group.
“That night they came to the lodge on four motorbikes carrying four persons each and they forced themselves in when one of the students living there came out to buy Instant Noodles.

“They beheaded their targets while the third person, their visitor, was seriously wounded.
“After killing them they carried their heads and bodies in a sack bag and took it to a playground where they (cult boys) normally play football near the school gate and mounted their heads as goalposts.”
The Abia State Police Public Relations Officer, Ezekiel Onyeke Udeviotu, who confirmed the development, said the state Commissioner of Police Joshiak Habilah had ordered the Criminal Investigation Department to commence investigation into the murder of the students.
He said, “We are willing to invite any member of the public with any useful information that could lead to the arrest of criminals to our office if such a person is afraid of giving the information to police officers.”
