Cult group leader kills colleague in Delta community


A leader of a notorious cult group in Okpanam community, near Asaba Delta State, identified as Frank Okie has allegedly killed a member of his group in error.

It was gathered that the suspect hails from Umuomahe clan, while the deceased (name withheld) was from Umuobodo, Okpanam community.

The police image maker in the State, DSP Andrew Aniamaka, who confirmed the incident, disclosed that both parents of the suspect, and the deceased were cultists, who had been involved in notorious cult-related activities in the recent times.

He added that the victim was beaten mercilessly to death. Sources said the victim was beaten after he had challenged the group leader, and was rushed to the Federal Medical Centre Asaba where he gave up the ghost few hours later.

A family source told DAILY POST that the police allegedly collected N50, 000 ‘to destroy the case’, but DSP Aniamaka dispelled it as untrue.

He said the suspect was arrested, and that upon interrogation, he confessed to the crime, saying that his father was a well-known member of a cult group before he died.
