Suspected drug peddler, one other killed in Bayelsa renewed cult war
Suspected drug peddler, one other person have been killed and many others injured in renewed cult war between members of the Bobos and Iceland cult groups in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital.
The clash was said to have started in the early hours of the day at the OMPADEC area of the state capital before spreading to other parts of Amarata suburb with residents scampering for safety.
According to Vanguard, a resident told that the killing of the suspected drug peddler at the OMPADEC area at about 3 am by suspected Bobos cult members might have triggered the anger of the Icelander boys allegedly in control of the area.
The suspected drug peddler, who some person claimed do not belong to either cult group, was reported to have had a verbal altercation with some unknown persons at a popular bar in Amarata area during a birthday party.
He was trailed to his house and shot twice before he was dealt machete cuts.
“We heard a gunshot fired at about 3am,” a source said.
In retaliation, the Icelanders reportedly invaded the Ebis Mechanic base of the Bobos and shot dead a boy known as Peter in broad daylight and dispossessed residents of mobile phones and other valuables at gunpoint.
The state police spokesman, Asinim Butswat, who confirmed the renewed cult clash in the state capital, said only one person was killed along with the Ebis Mechanic Area with operatives of the ‘A’ Divisional headquarters investigating and searching for the deceased family.
