Three feared killed as rival cult groups clash in Port Harcourt

Three persons have been feared killed following a bloody clash by cultists at the old Port Harcourt township area in Rivers State.

It was gathered that the two cult groups engaged in a supremacy battle to gain control of the area.

The violence has reportedly thrown residents of Bende, Victoria and Bagham streets into panic.

According to a source, the war started around 8pm, adding that one Dike and Biggy were among the people feared killed.

The Rivers Police Command Public Relations Officer, SP. Nnamdi Omoni, who confirmed the incident, said the shooting was following a cult war, adding that police had restored calm in the area.

“I can confirm that there was a cult clash yesterday at the town axis of Port Harcourt. Two rival cult groups engaged themselves in a senseless war of supremacy.

“On getting the distress call, we mobilised and we chased them and we were able to recover one of their pistol guns. The manhunt for the cultists still continues.

“So far we have no case of reported casualty. The Commissioner of Police has declared war against the criminals,” Omoni said.
