A suspected cultist has been reported dead in a rival cult clash in Ovwian Community in Udu Local Government Area of Delta State.
The latest clash broke out between the Aye, Dominion and Aro-Bagger confraternities.
Details of what led to the bloody clash remain unknown at the time of filing this report.
It was learnt that the deceased was killed in a fierce battle at about 3pm on Monday.
The decease whose remains had been deposited in a mortuary had tattoos all over his body.
The cult groups shot sporadically in the area as they dispossessed residents of their personal effects as they also destroyed valuables worth several millions of naira.
The cultists had wanted to spread their fight to Aladja Community but they were resisted by the Vigilante.
The Assistant Secretary of Aladja Community, Comrade Ighotegwolor Bezi, said the Aladja Community Vigilante warned that the Community will not condone such misdemeanor in their land.
According to Bezi, “Any cultist caught terrorizing our Community whether the person is an indigene or not, he will be dealt with in line with the laws.”
In a chat with DAILY POST on Tuesday morning, the Delta State Commissioner of Police, CP Muhammad Mustafa, confirmed the report.
CP Mustafa said, “It is confirmed. It was a cult clash, but we are still looking for the other suspects. It is a sad story.”
