Cultists Kill One In NorthBank Makurdi

 Suspected cultists yesterday killed one person in North Bank suburb of Makurdi metropolis in Benue State.

Daily Trust reports that the North Bank area is notorious for cult activities, a haven for criminals and breeding place for many questionable characters as many people have been allegedly hacked to death by ‘bad boys’ in the vicinity.

Witnesses said that the latest victim, presumed to be 20 years old, was shot dead at 1:00pm by a suspected cult gang around the Hausa quarters in the area.

A source who pleaded anonymity for fear of the cultists, said security agencies needed to step up surveillance in the vicinity as killings of such nature had almost become a daily occurrence.

Spokesman of the Police Command in the State, Moses Joel Yamu confirmed that one person whose identity was yet to be known was killed yesterday afternoon at the area and that many arrests had been made.
