The family members of a final year student of Delta Polytechnic have been left in a state of mourning after the student was murdered by cultists.
A final year student of Business Administration of Delta State Polytechnic, Mr. Diete Rufus has been murdered in Bayelsa State.
According to a report by Punch, Rufus was reportedly killed in a crossfire during a deadly armed clash involving two rival cult groups on Sunday.
It was learnt that three other persons also sustained serious injuries in the incident which occurred in Okpotuwari and Ondewari communities, Southern Ijaw Local Government Area of Bayelsa State.
The sad incident caused panic and forced many residents to flee into the creeks and forest for safety. It was gathered that Rufus was first rushed to Korokorosei hospital where he was later referred to the Federal Medical Centre, Yenagoa, but later died on the way to the federal government health facility.
It was revealed that the gun duel might not be unconnected with the alleged disagreement over the control of security of oil wells in the area, which had generated bitterness among the youths in recent times.
