Cultists kill nine in Imo

vllkytcfc0r19s0rq.db088177Owerri - There was mayhem at Ohaji- Egbema

Local Government Area of Imo State weekend,

when cultists killed nine people while avenging the

killing of one their members by another rival

group.

The victims including eight males and one female

were killed when the DEEWELL cult group

reportedly invaded Assa Awara community and

killed eight men and killed another woman at

Obitte community.

This was even as a traditional ruler and two other

of his accomplices were detained at the Owerri,

the Imo State capital for allegedly killing one

Joseph Ihueze over a parcel of land in the same

area.

Police sources said that the deceased who was

insane inherited a large portion of land from his

father, but the traditional ruler and two other

persons killed him to enable them take over the

land.

The killing of Ihueze, however, irked youths who

revolted against the traditional ruler causing

tension in the area.

However, the killing of the nine persons was said

to have been carried out by DEEWELL against the

DEEGBAM cult group, which was alleged to have

killed one of the DEEWELL members in the area.

Police sources which confirmed the story said that

armed security operatives had been deployed to

the troubled sports to fish out the culprits.
