Confusion in Nkpor as cultists kill one , shoot one, injure scores reports that there was confusion since Monday night at some streets in Nkpor, Idemmili North local Government Area, Anambra state, when some suspected cultists numbering over 20 attacked the area killing one, and maiming others.

The streets attacked were Adazi -Ani, Amaokpala, Our lady's, Ozigboand All saints.
The cultists on rampage were suspected to be members of Aye fraternity. They allegedly killed Ifeanyi Emerie, and another was shot on the leg but he escaped by the whiskers while scores sustained various degrees of injuries.

The cultists according to reports had on arrival at the said streets,
started shooting indiscriminately into the air as they maimed,
attacked and robbed whoever that was within reach  without fear of any
attack at about 9.00pm on the fateful night.

There were two conflicting reports to the incident that led to the
death of the deceased, Mr Emerie, who hailed from Ukwulu in Njikoka
local Government Area.

While one source  had it that a rival group, Baga( Akpa )
fraternity had earlier attacked the Aye which made Aye to embark on a
revenge mission and on sighting the deceased who was said to be a
member of Baga, shot him on the head and chest and he died on the
spot, another version has it that he refused to join Aye despite repeated
efforts and pleas by Aye members to do so and they had to kill him.

Contacted, the Ogidi Divisional Police Officer, DPO, Mr Mark Ijarafu,
confirmed the incident adding that he had sent his men to deposit the
corpse at Iyi-Enu Mission mortuary Ogidi, pending further

As at the time of sending this report no arrest has been made
according to him but investigation was ongoing.
