GUNMEN KILL FINAL YEAR CRUTECH STUDENT
A final year student of the Cross River State University of Technology, Felix Egot, has been killed by gunmen.
Eyewitnesses said the incident happened near the SUG secretariat on the school premises on Thursday.
It was gathered that the people who attacked Felix entered the school premises through a bush path, while some were also around the main campus in Calabar to monitor the victim’s movement.
A source said, “The assailants numbering about five came into the school from a neighbouring community and laid ambush for their victim before striking.
“They shot him many times; after he fell down, they cut his neck and with machetes. They later escaped through the same bush path they came.”
The institution’s Public Relations Officer, Mr Onen Onen, confirmed the incident.
H said, “I am aware of the incident but there will be an official statement to that effect later.”
The state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Irene Ugbo, said, “Our men are on the ground at the crime scene. The cult clash claimed the life of one undergraduate.”
