Four persons suspected to have killed and beheaded two students of Abia State University, Uturu (ABSU) in March this year have been arrested.
Parading the suspects at Government House, Umuahia, Thursday evening, the Abia State Director of Department of State Services (DSS), Korede Kamoju, disclosed that the students were arrested within Umuahia and Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike.
The suspects are 22-year-old Chikezie Macdonald (a.k.a Aalking Dutch), 21-year-old Chikezie Obi a.k.a Small Body), 25-year-old Chukwuemeka Awom (Arch Angel) and 23-year-old Chigozie Francis Eberendu.
According to the DSS Director, the suspects, who are members of Burkina Faso cult group, planned and conspired with others at large and stormed the residence of their three victims at Chido Lodge and slaughtered them around 10pm on March 12, 2016.
They severed the bodies of two of their victims, Ebuka Nwaigbo and Samuel Ethelbert Chuka, and displayed their heads at the school field near the ABSU gate. The third victim, who was shot by the assailants, Isaac Chigozirim, later died in the hospital on March 18. The victims were said to be members of Marphite Cult group.
The suspects said they were on a mission to avenge the killing of their cult leader, Collins Agwu a.k.a Biggy.
