The statement reads: “We noticed that Victor was absent for his final paper in the afternoon and decided to contact his parents.
“It was later discovered that he was attacked by unknown cultists in the early hours of Saturday.
“Victor was shouting that he was not joining their cult group while they continued to hit him with cutlasses, hard stones and attempted to burn him, partially succeeding before he was eventually rescued.
“The University security unit is currently working with the Police to ensure the culprits are exposed and brought to book. The cultists must be arrested.”
