Lecturer, nursing mother, 2 others killed in Uniport cult war


Four persons including a senior lecturer and a nursing mother were killed on Tuesday in a cult-related shooting at the University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT), Rivers State.

Four persons including a senior lecturer and a nursing mother were killed on Tuesday in a cult-related shooting at the University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT), Rivers State.

The other two persons were said to be members of the rampaging cult group who were gunned down by policemen as they made their escape.

Apart from the dead, several persons including a professor and three security staffers of the university sustained gun shot injuries. Daily Sun gathered that eight suspected cultists on four motorcycles carried out the attack in the morning hours.
They were said to have first shot at the university’s chief security officer, but he narrowly escaped being hit.
Apparently angered that they missed their target, the cultists shot indiscriminately and in the process, felled a senior lecturer in the Department of Education, Dr. Ozuzu Ikenzan and an unidentified nursing mother.

However, policemen who were drafted to the scene gave the cultists hot pursuit, killed two of them and arrested one.

Confirming the incident and the arrest of one of the fleeing cultists, Police Public Relations Officer in Rivers State, Mrs Rita Inoma-Abbey told Daily Sun that three of the four motorcycles used by the cultists and five loaded Ak 47 magazines were also recovered.

Mrs Abbey, a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) was optimistic that the arrest of one of the cultists who was being interrogated would lead to the arrest of the other five still on the run.
