Suspected cultists that were killed and those arrested recently in the clash between the KKK and Vikings Confraternity are not students of the Federal College of Education Obudu.

Reacting to the killings and subsequent arrests of the cultists whom earlier publications had claimed were students of the school, Dr. Eugene Ibili , the Provost of the College, said the school is “cultism unfriendly and has battled the scourge to extinction from all its campuses and so those involved in the recent cult activity are not our students ”.

The Provost said the school no longer operates hostel accommodation and for a long time had not witnessed the activities of cultism and that normal academic activities were going on at the time of the cult war. “Normal academic and other activities were going on uninterrupted during the period because there was no cult activity on any of our campuses”.

He said no one among those killed or arrested is in any of the faculties or departments of the school and cautioned that any one seen to harbor such intentions or have any links with cult groups would not only be shown the way out of the school but also handed over to law enforcement agents.

CrossRiverWatch also gathered that the two suspects who were arrested by the police in Obudu over recent killings, Edward Ushie and Otogo Gabriel were freed by the police on Monday.

The duo were arrested over recent killings in Obudu resulting from a supremacy war between two of the cult groups.
A police source had told CrossRiverWatch that the suspects had mentioned other cult members who are being trailed by the police and would also be arrested soon.

The source who is a senior police detective said “Some of them are known politicians and we have left a message with the Obudu Council Chairman, Dr. Emmanuel Ikwen and the Paramount Ruler of the area, Uti J.D. Agba to tell those we are looking for to report at the Obudu Police station or the police headquarters on Monday because if they fail to do so they would be declared wanted”.

As at press time, CrossRiverWatch was still making efforts to reach the new spokesperson of the state command of the police to comment on the sudden release of the suspects.
