There was pandemonium on Monday at the Rivers State University in Nkpolu-Oruworuku, as cultists attacked students in one of the departments.

It was gathered that the cultists numbering about three attacked students in the department of Mass communication following a fracas.

According to some students who were in the department at the time of the attack, the rampaging cultists, who were armed with guns, stormed the classroom at about 11:00 a.m. while the students were waiting for lectures.

They were said to be on a revenge mission following a fight that happened outside the campus over the weekend.

An eyewitness said the cultists subsequently shot into the classroom to scare the students who then raised alarms which attracted the attention of Police officers in the school.

According to the eyewitness, the police officers intervened and apprehended the cultists. 

The situation created palpable tension on campus.
