AT least three persons were feared dead in cult war in Cross River University of Technology, CRUTECH, and Calabar metropolis.
One of the victims, Master Herbert Akpo, a third year student of visual art and Director of Socials, DoS Student Union Government, SUG, was murdered on Thursday, by suspected cult members in a restaurant in the university campus.
The late DoS, who hailed from Obudu Local Government Area of the state, was said to have received a phone call to come and eat with the yet to be identified assassins in the restaurant.
It was gathered that while dinning with the supposedly friends, he was shot in the head from behind while the assailants disappeared.
Before the killing, one other person, suspected to be a student of the university, was reportedly murdered at Akpanika Street, off Mariam Road, and another killed at Yellow Duke Street.
Akpo was said to be a member of one of the cults that had embarked on supremacy tussle, but a lecturer in the Department of Visual Art in CRUTECH, Mr. Justin Obong, who described the deceased as his nephew, denied knowledge of the late DoS involvement with any cult group.
