There was pandemonium at Akenzua Secondary school and Ihogbe College, both in Benin, the Edo State capital when suspected cultists invaded the schools and injured two students.
The two secondary schools that were invaded by thugs who wielded guns, cutlass and knives, are adjacent to each other and are located along ICE Road off Wire Road.
Panicky teachers and students ran for safety when the cultists stumbled into the school, shooting sporadically and violently attack the students.
Going by an eyewitness account, the cultists reportedly came for their target in the area but some hot-headed students who were said to be members of junior rival cult group hauled stones at them.
In anger, the cultists stormed the school and started inflicted deep injuries on unlucky students in revenge.
One of the students was said to have been seriously injured was rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment.
Determined to maintain peace, armed policemen were promptly deployed to the schools and were seen patrolling the neighbourhood.
Two of the suspected attackers who were arrested by the police wailed as they were led away, insisting that they were innocent.
