A cultist student of the Government Secondary School State Housing, Calabar, Cross River state, has been arrested by the Police for stabbing another student.
The arrest of the student was effected by the Special Adviser to Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River State on Education, Castro Ezama.
The boy allegedly stabbed his fellow student over cultism. The incident occurred during school hours as the suspect – who was later arrested – brought out an axe and cut through his fellow student’s head.
The suspect was however caught and handed over to the men of the anti-cultism Unit of the Nigeria Police, Calabar. The victim, who narrowly escaped being killed, is said to be a member of a rival cult group.
