Cultists decapitate students, use heads as goalposts

15 March 2016, 06:30

Abuja - Suspected cultists decapitated two students from the Abia State University in Uturu on Saturday, before using their heads as goalposts.

According to a Punch report, the killers were members of a rival cult group who were on a hunt for revenge due to the death of one of their members last month.

A source has revealed that a turf war has been brewing between the groups for years at the university and culminated in the horrific deaths of the two beheaded students.

According to a source who spoke on condition of anonymity, sixteen cult members forced their way into one of the students' living quarters before beheading their targets and wounding a third students with machetes.

In the minutes that followed, the suspects are said to have packed the heads of the deceased on a bag before heading to the playground and mounting the heads as goalposts.

Heavy police presence has been felt at the school following the incident, with Ezekiel Onyeke Udeviotu, PR Officer for the Abia State Police, confirming that investigations into the matter are currently underway.
