Reports from Ekpoma say at least 10 students were killed yesterday in a cultist related confrontation during a graduation party. One of them was said to be a medical student who had just completed his examination.
Ekpoma is has become a breeding ground for cultists activities and robberies. And it appears that security authorities there are not doing enough to stop these wayward students from having a free reign of terror.
There are frequent cases of break-ins and attacks on innocent students making the rusty university town unsafe for normal academic work.
We hope that going forward drastic actions will be taken by both university and security officials to arrest a deterioration of the situation.
