10 CULTISTS FEARED KILLED IN CLASH IN CROSS RIVER

Reports indicate that about 10 cultists were killed in a clash in the Akpabuyo and Bakassi LGAs of Cross River State.


It was gathered that three suspected cultists identified as Skylo, Mafia, and Black Scorpion, were the dominant groups in these areas. Sources say they have been attacking one another since Monday, leaving many dead.


The Chairman of Bakassi LGA, Iyadim Iyadim, said; “There are a lot of killings in the area, it is cult-related. The last boy who died, his colleagues took him for charm preparation, so that bullets and other weapons will not penetrate his body.


“When he was put on trial, to ascertain the efficacy of the charm, he was shot and he died. That cult lost three persons coupled with the ones the rival group killed.” “Up to 10 persons have been killed and the operations started in the last two months, extended to this month; that is, March, April and May.


“We have reported the matter to the government and on Tuesday, we had a security meeting with the governor.”The chairman lamented that since his local government Secretariat was completely destroyed during the EndSARS protest, it has no office to operate from.


”The Security Adviser South-South, Henry Okokon, said, “The communities should have their own vigilantes, they should also provide security for themselves.“Before things get out of hand, proactive measures should have been put in place. Must they wait until when they start killing people before they call us?”
