Cultists shot dead a Yaba College of Technology, Lagos student at about 9pm on Thursday evening within the premises of the institution.
The deceased was shot twice by the cultists before being allowed to writ in pains and eventually gave up the ghost.
Students around the area where the killing took place scampered for safety as soon as they heard the gun shot.
One of the students Tayo Aina who witnessed the scene gave her own account of the story.
“I was going for night class because my final exam is tomorrow and the next thing I heard was a gunshot and the guy behind me fell.
“I can’t say exactly but they were about two to three guys who were standing and I could see one with a gun as I ran for safety.”
Another student, who only identified herself as Mujibat stated that the level of cult shootings and killings in the school had to be stopped.
She stated, “It was a day to our matric during my National Diploma days when someone was also killed. It’s not the first time this is happening and no development has been made towards the issue at all.”
Mujibat noted that she was also on her way to the night class when she heard gunshots and students running helter-skelter for safety.
Meanwhile, the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, haw confirmed the incident and warns students to desist from cultism.
Hundeyin said “The DPO of the area already visited the scene and confirmed that the incident did happen.”
He added that investigation was ongoing to get to the root cause of the crime.
He also noted that further details would be released by the police after investigations.
