Renewed cult clash has claimed two lives in Calabar, the capital of Cross River State. One each died in Calabar south and Calabar Municipal.
Our informant gathered that the killing was done on Saturday evening and Sunday morning.
According to him, an eyewitness who gave his name as George told him on Sunday that “two young men were killed in the renewed cult clash between two rival cult groups in Calabar.
“One was killed at Nyahasang close to a transformer (Calabar Municipal) while the other was killed at Dr Dean in Mbukpa in Calabar South local government area.”
He further said that the Nyahasang incident occurred on Sunday morning while the Dr Dean incident occurred on Saturday by 7pm.
When the informant called the Police Public Relations Officer, Miss Irene Ugbo, she did not pick calls, neither did she respond to text messages.
But a reliable Police source who pleaded that his name should not be mentioned said that three young men had been arrested with machetes and a locally made pistol, and were taken to Mbukpa Police station.
“The two cult groups are Klans and Axe. Somebody from Klans killed an Axe man on Saturday and this morning there was a reprisal from ,” he stated.
