16 killed in Ekpoma cult war
The Edo State Police Com­mand has said that 16 stu­dents of the state-owned Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma, have so far been beheaded in cult-related attacks.
The Commissioner of Police, Mr. Haliru Gwandu, made the dis­closure on Wednesday when he briefed newsmen in Benin City on the successes of the command in the last three weeks with the arrest of 61 suspected armed robbers, kidnap­pers, cultists and rapists.
Gwandu, who stated that 17 suspected cultists have been arrest­ed with assorted arms, explained that 16 other students in the insti­tution were beheaded during a re­cent cult war.
He said that some senior lectur­ers at the AAU who were abetting cult activities in the area would not go free as the long arm of the law would meet them with stiff punishment.
The police chief said that leak­ages in the boundaries between Edo with other states have been blocked with adequate security put in place to ensure crime rate is minimally reduced.  Read more
