Four students of Imo State University (IMSU) in Owerri were feared dead yesterday in a clash between two rival cult groups.

According to The Nation, a source said the fight started at a hostel in front of the university’s main gate.

It was learnt the battle lasted almost two hours.

The police reportedly sent a detachment from the Anti-Cultism Unit to restore normalcy on campus.

A source said: “Cult members are killing one another. They are students of Imo State University in Owerri. Nobody could immediately ascertain the actual cause of the clash but the shooting started at Delight Hostel in front of IMSU gate.”
