In Anambra: Five die in cults’ clash

No fewer than five persons have reportedly been killed in a clash between rival cult groups in Anambra State.

It was gathered that the incident occurred at the Idemili-North and Oyi areas of the state on Friday.

The reason for the rival cults’ clashes could not be ascertained as of press time.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Anambra State Command, Haruna Mohammed, confirmed the incident.

He said the police were on the trail of those involved in the fracas.

Mohammed added that the command’s rapid response team had intervened and returned normalcy to the areas.

He said, “It was a cult clash. They equally shot two others at Ogidi. Police patrol teams rushed to the scene and took the victims to the hospital for medical attention, but they were certified dead on arrival.
