Civil societies organisation have joined in condemning the cult clashes at the Rivers State University Which Claimed One life and the reprisal attacks that followed after killing the final year student.
The civil rights council in Rivers state noted with concerns the porous nature of security in and around the campus even as the students writes their promotional and second semester exams.
The spokesman of the civil right council Prince Wiro in a chat with our correspondent noted that the query issued to Professor Blessing Didia, the Vice Chancellor of Rivers State University by Governor Wike Over the killing of a final year student yesterday and exchange of gunfire between two rival cult groups in the school who were later dispersed by the Police was in order.
He said ‘’I expected the VC to know that He is supposed to beef up security on campus especially during the second semester examination. From history of RSU most cult war breaks out during second semester exams.’’
After the shooting of the final year student Monday evening, the VC ought to know that there must be reprisals attacks if there are security lapses. No Police patrol van was sighted in the school yesterday. The Police only came when the two groups engaged themselves in exchange of gunfire.
He urged the Management of RSU to be proactive rather than been reactive’’ a stich in time saves nine’’.
