A cult war in the Benue State University, Makurdi, has claimed the life of a 21-year student of the Department of Geography, Solomon Aondoaseer, who was gruesomely murdered along with his girlfriend on Wednesday.
Aondoaseer and his girlfriend, whom the police identified as a food vendor in the area where the student lived, were hacked to death in front of a private hostel where he lived.
The girlfriend identified as Doofan Agbaja, was said to have become a fatal victim of a war she knew nothing about when she spent the night at Aondoaseer’s room.
Saturday PUNCH was told that as the attack took place, the two victims screamed for help but no one dared to come to their rescue.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Mr. Moses Yamu, who confirmed the incident, said they did not kill them inside the house but took them outside. “The assailants pulled them out of the compound to an open ground in front of the house and hacked them to death with machetes,” he said.
