Information reaching me from reliable sources has it that Dunamis street, directly opposite the second gate of the Benue State University has recently been engulfed by activities of cult groups. Yesterday a death was recorded about 8pm around the area and today again about the hour of 4:35pm, a young man identified to be a student of Theatre Art Department of BSU was killed right at the entrance of the street, obstructing business activities and worshippers coming for the Wednesday service.
The sad incident which left traders and students scrambling for safety has dissuaded residents to pass the night in the fear that, there is likelihood of more security challenges for the area.
The deceased young man who was said to be resident in Gyado Villa had come to the street to have a hair cut and was trailed by a group of suspected Cultists numbering 17 who were armed with guns, short axes and cutlasses as well as stones who openly attacked him and hacked him down
The government and security agencies are by this update urged to consider Dunamis street an unsecured zone and take the necessary steps to forestall the complete breakdown of security.
