Ambrose Alli University: AAU management says students shot at graduation party were not killed by cultists

AAU management says students shot at graduation party were not killed by cultists

The University management says the students were not killed on campus.

Following the killing of some students who were celebrating their graduation in Edo state, the management of Ambrose Alli University has denied that the killing was cult-related.

On Tuesday, September 18, 2018, a fight reportedly broke out between two men at a bar where the students were celebrating their graduation.

One of the men according to reports was suspected to be a cult member.

Reacting to the incident, the Public Relations Officer of the University, Edward Aihevba while reacting to the incident said one of the men claimed that his shirt was torn during the brawl and left the scene angrily only to return later with a group of armed men who opened fire, killing five persons.

Here's what the University PRO has to say

Aihevba according to Punch  said “the erroneous reports had it that some graduating students of the Ambrose Alli University, some said 12, 10 or six, were shot by cultists at a graduation party on campus. This was an incident that really happened in Ekpoma, among a group of friends in a bar.

“It happened far away from the campus. Because it was not on the campus, the police are the ones to investigate. We were not at the spot, so we rely on what the police saw and what their investigation confirmed.”

 Meanwhile, a corps member,  identified as Ugwi Mary Martha who was said to be serving in Niger state has been confirmed to be one of the people who were shot during the fight.
