Nigeria (Blank NEWS Online) –By Our Crime Reporter:
Residents of Obiaruku, headquaters of Ukwani Local Government Area of Delta state, were again subjected to untold harrassment as two rival cult groups clash in a supremacy conflict.
Blank NEWS Online reporter gathered that the incidence which took place on Sunday 27th and Monday 28th of November, 2016, saw many innocent people beaten and dispossesed of their money and valuables like GSM handsets, wrist watches and other valuables along the streets, especially around Ogbeaka area of the community.
Blank NEWS Online was reliably informed that trouble started when a member of one of the cult groups decided to defect to another cult which is contrary to the laws of his initial cult, thereby setting off a supremacy duel between the rival cults.
As usual, the police was unable to arrest the pandamonium that ensued for two days, only to arrest a few of the cult members after the two days incidence, after the major culprits had escaped into the bush and neighbouring villages.
In recent times, Obiaruku has become a major hot spot of cult activities and related criminal and anti~social acts in Delta state. Almost at quarterly intervals the entire community is put on the precipice by warring cult gangs, often killing each others in attempts to assert their supremacy in the community.
Equally, stakeholders including the state Police Command, community leaders and vigilante groups have held series of peace and security conferences in a collective bid to find a lasting solution to the challenge to no avail.
With this year’s Christmas coming close, residents of the community now sleep wait one eye closed as the teenage cultists have developed penchant to unleash violence on innocent people witout notice.
