Suspected members of a notorious female cult group in the Bayelsa State-owned Niger Delta University(NDU) in Ammassoma community of Southern Ijaw Area of the State weekend attacked a 17-year-old student after she declined their offer of membership.
The suspected cult members, who were reportedly led by one Annabela, a final year student of the Education Department of the institution, allegedly attacked their victim at Hostel “F” of the institution and injected her with a strange substance after subjecting her to severe torture.
The victim of the attack is a daughter to a lecturer in the institution and a student of the Economics department.
While some students claimed the attack on the victims was due to domestic squabbles among room mates,others claimed the victim ran into trouble waters with the suspected cultists due to her strict Christian ways and refusal to accept advances to belong to the notorious cult group which is notorious for lesbianism and other vices on campus.
A friend to the victim who identified herself as Claire said the victim was attacked at about 4am last Tuesday in her hostel room.
“She was tied to a chair and severely beaten by four girls. Her hair attachment was forceful removed and she was injected with substances that made her behave in a crazy manner for days.When the attackers saw that the girl had fainted,they brought her out of the room in the early hours of morning, and they were apprehended.”
Leadership gathered that investigation into the incident, which was reported to the Students’ Senate Disciplinary Committee, had begun and its outcome would be made known to the institution’s authorities this week.
