The Chief Security Officer of the institution (CSO), Jarlath Abang said, “Ikezue who is suspected to be a cult leader, had forcefully occupied the Hall Chairman’s room at the hostel and refused to vacate despite several appeals from the security unit.

The suspect was arrested at about 2.am, by men of the security unit who were on a normal routine check of hostels. But prior to his arrest, there were sporadic gunshots in the hostel and this is what prompted us to swing into action.’’
