It was gathered that the killings were reprisals carried out by one of the cults whose leader, a student of Kogi State Polytechnic, Lokoja, was murdered by another cult linked to the university.
An eyewitness accounted that the KSU killings started on Friday, November 1, 2019, when nine students, including a 200 level female student and her boyfriend, were hacked down on the campus and at different points within the host community.
Some of the victims were said to be attacked on Stadium Road and Our Lady Fatima’s Lodge.
