Tragedy as 500 level student of the Federal University of Agriculture, Makurdi, Benue state identified as Igyagher Isaac was brutally murdered by suspected cultists on Friday night, July 31, in a lodge around Gabiz Hotel, opposite Benue Judges Lodge, Makurdi.
The Agricultural and Environmental Engineering student was shot dead and his corpse put on a pile of his clothes and burnt by suspected members of Aye and Vikings confraternity.
The deceased had organized an anti-cultism campaign in 2020, as confirmed by one Japhet Terseer and it was suspicious that he was killed by suspected cultists.
Close friends and colleagues said Isaac was not a cultist, adding that he was at the wrong place and wrong time.
Meanwhile, friends have taken to social media to pay glowing tributes to the young man.
One Ongolo Neville revealed that the deceased had planned on empowering some women in IDP camps in the state and was seeking for sponsors before his brutal murder.
“I went for wedding today @ Sheraton today in honour of my long time friend. While at the wedding I met CJ and he show me a picture of one guy who was murdered yesterday. Lol and behold it was my very own JCINFUAM IPP Igyagher Isaac. Still I didn’t believe until when I called my JCINFUAM member and he confirmed that is true, that’s when I believed,” Ongolo wrote in his tribute.
