2 KILLED AS CULT GROUPS CLASH IN MAKURDI

Two people were killed yesterday at the Welfare quarters in Kanshio, a Makurdi suburb in Benue State during a clash between rival cult groups.

Youths in the area blocked the Makurdi-Otukpo highway for more than three hours a fortnight ago to protest against rising cases of cultist activities.


The state police commissioner, Hyacinth Dagala, said  five suspects had been arrested in connection with the killing and that the police is currently after other cultists in the state.

Witnesses said the deceased were brutally butchered with machetes and other dangerous weapons.
