A Student of Benue State University identified as Jessica Agee was shot dead by unidentified gunmen at her Gyado villa residence in Makurdi last night.
According to Reports, there were gunshots in the second campus of the university while final year students were taking their last paper on Monday.
According to an insider, the shooting was due to the ceasing of some exam slips belonging to suspected cultists who were taking their last paper in the Mass Communication department.
The source, who also sat for the exam, said some of the cultists came from outside the school and also celebrated the graduation of their members who are mostly members of the a popular confraternity with gunshots amidst chanting of ‘orientation’
It took the timely intervention of the men of the Nigeria police for calmness to return to the campus.
But there were fears that rival cultists might later clash tonight in students’ lodges around Gyado Villa, Madam Saba, Opposite CHS, Behind Customary Court and other student dominated areas.
Eventually, the crisis crossed to Gyado Villa and Jessica was killed
