A man named Abuchi Edekobi was reported to have been murdered on Saturday as a result of cult wars in Idemili North local government area of Anambra State.
It was garnered Edekobi was allegedly killed with his friend, Somto Egbe by an opposing cult group with the former said to be preparing for his wedding a week before his demise.
The duo was suspected to be members of Vikings Fraternity with the attack coming from a rival group suspected to be the Black Axe Fraternity.
A resident, who identified himself as Charles, said the attack by the rival group was a revenge mission over recent steady killings of their members in the area.
He said, “Edekobi, popularly called Ija, had left Obosi for Ghana at the heat of the cult crisis where he spent about five years before his return.
“He was preparing for his wedding scheduled to hold on the 29th of this month before he met his untimely death.
“He was even in a burial party the same day he died and was sighted spraying money on a notable musician without knowing he was being trailed by those who later killed him.”
The officer in charge of the Special Anti- Cultism Squad, CSP Christopher Bassey, when contacted, said the force was on top of the situation but declined further comment on the incident.
