Student Secret Society murders in Nigeria

A secret society of students has murdered 17 people in Nigeria, the latest of a number of such killings in recent months.

In this latest massacre, seventeen people were shot dead and an undisclosed number were wounded at a university in southeast Nigeria, the University of Nsukka, in the state of Enugu. This university, with 10,000 students, is considered as one of the best in the country.

The Nigerian authorities calculate that there are some 20 secret societies active in Nigeria, which have been responsible for a spate of killings in recent months, in which hundreds of people have died, some in situations of extreme cruelty.
