Cultists Break Into Imo Polytechnic hostels

An
unidentified cultist group in Imo State Polytechnic Umuagwo, attacked
student hostels yesterday at about 11pm, with the
properties of victimised students stolen.
According to PUNCH, the cultist
group has been disturbing the peace of the students for about a week
now, and had continued to rob them of their belongings.
Although, the students were writing
their first semester examination, they had been living in fear because
no one knew the next time this group might attack.
A
student who pleaded anonymity, for fear of being attacked said, “The
cult boys attacked at about 11pm. When we heard the noise last night we
became scared, because it had been going on for about a week now.
“We
were peeping from our rooms before the school’s man-o-war members
rushed into the hostels. They told us to turn off the lights both in the
rooms and on the corridor, those that  we could not find their
switches, we had to break the bulbs.”
She said the cultists had guns with them and were shooting, but members of the army showed up before things  normalised.
She said “We were hearing gunshots everywhere and did not leave our rooms, we just laid down.
“After
some time army people intervened, I do not know how they got to know
about the attack and I am not very sure if they took some people away
with them.
“But that was how the whole incident calmed down; we have not heard anything since then.”
Although nobody was killed during the attack, but phones, laptops and other gadgets were stolen.
