No fewer than seven persons were reportedly killed in the last three days in a renewed clash between rival cult groups believed to be members of “Aro baggars and Aye confraternities” in Ughelli, Ughelli North Local Government, Delta State.
Advocate News reports that the renewed cult war started Thursday at Afiesere community, where a young man simply identified as Nyerhovwo AKA C.O was attacked and his head smashed with a battle axe during what some persons have described as a robbery attack by a 3-man robbery gang.
The death of the victim said to be a member of Aye confraternities allegedly led to a reprisal from the “Aye” which then sparked off the renewed clash between the two dreaded cult groups leading to the death of six others with many sustaining life threatening injuries.
It was further gathered that one of the strongman of Aro baggars was murdered along Akpodiete street, while two other victims suspected to be Aye boys were allegedly killed in Ekiugbo and another one killed at Oghenevweta street, while two other victims were shot on Sunday at Ekuigbo with one of them confirmed dead while the second person was rushed to a private hospital where he is currently receiving medical attention.
Though efforts to speak with the state police public relations officer, Onome Onowakpoyeya were fruitless, a security source from the ‘A’ division police station, Ughelli while confirming the incident, said as a result of the incident, a total of five other persons have been killed.
According to Advocate News, the source who spoke on conditions of anonymity, said two persons were killed on Friday at the central garage axis and Agishon area, another two were killed on Saturday at Oghenevweta and Akpodiete streets while two other victims were shot on Sunday at Ekuigbo with one of them confirmed dead while the second person was rushed to a private hospital where he is currently receiving medical attention.
Our source authoritatively gathered that the two brothers suspected to be cult members, Master Frank and Oghenero were attacked and killed in their house (Poyo compound) close to Ataverhe, junction in Ekiugbo-Ughelli, Delta State.
It was also gathered that Frank and Oghenero were dragged from their room to an uncompleted building within the compound where they shot severely.
When our reporter visited the scene, he reported that the suspected cult members also sustained deep matchet cuts on the head and neck regions.
In a related development, an operator/vendor of POS, one Celestina Ochuko was yesterday evening robbed and shot on the thigh by two hoodlums.
Investigation indicates that the victim had resisted the attempt by the hoodlums to snatch her bag containing undisclosed sum of money and other valuables.
