A cult war which broke out recently in Anambra State, reportedly got a Nigerian man and his friend killed just 7 days to his wedding he was preparing for.
The Nigerian man identified as Udoka Edekobi, was reportedly killed alongside his friend Somto Egbe, on Thursday in Obosi, Anambra State by suspected rival cult members. The Nigerian man and his friend who are suspected to be members of Vikings fraternity, were allegedly attacked by a rival group suspected to be members of the Black Axe fraternity, in revenge of the recent killings of their members in the area.
This is coming few months after the Police in Anambra, disclosed that 16 persons were killed in two weeks gun battle between two rival cult groups in Awka, the state capital. A resident, who identified himself as Charles, said the attack by the rival group was a revenge mission over recent steady killings of their members in the area.
He said, “Edekobi, popularly called Ija, had left Obosi for Ghana at the heat of the cult crisis where he spent about five years before his return. “He was preparing for his wedding scheduled to hold on the 29th of this month before he met his untimely death.
“He was even in a burial party the same day he died and was sighted spraying money on a notable musician without knowing he was being trailed by those who later killed him.”
