Awka on rampage as Cultists take over , kill 9 persons, families in tears ------at least 21 killed since December 2017 (Photos of people shot on display, so viewer's discretion needed )






 www.odogwublog.com reports that there is apprehension and tension in Awka , Awka South local government area of Anambra state since after the Imo Awka annual cultural celebration of Awka people as cultists have taken over the state capital killing 9 persons in a swoop. 


The reasons for the cult killing and counter killings were not immediately ascertained as at press time but lifeless bodies of people alleged to be cult litter different quarters in Awka eliciting tears from families of victims. Most families are sleeping with one eyes open as nobody knows who next shall be victim.

 On Saturday night about 7:30 pm one guy was shot at Nkwelle Awka in front of his gate while four were killed on Sunday morning and two shot at Amikwo allegedly. 

Four were killed around Eke Awka , three killed around Nkwelle Awka while one was killed around Regina Caeli Hospital Awka even as another was killed by 3 pm on Sunday.
 On the Imo Awka festival , two cultists were fighting in front of Isiagu junction ,Amikwo, Awka by 4:30 pm in front of police and other security agents including anti cult team but nothing was done until they dismissed themselves.
But on Sunday Federal SARS has taken over Amikwo Awka and other villages searching for members of the waring cult groups allegedly.  

www.odogwublog.com reports further that there were cult wars before , during and after Imoka festival but why the sudden joy for taking life by the Awka youths could not be ascertained.
The cult groups fighting are Aye’s and Baggers allegedly but it is snowballing to other groups yet to be named and within weekend 10 boys have been killed in Awka allegedly. 

Efforts to speak with the PPRO Anambra state command, SP Mohammed Haruna was unsuccessful as at the time of filing this report even though a police source close to the CP’s office but not authorized to speak to newsmen said the CP is worried over the development and has despatched crack team to sniff out the immediate and remote cause of the rampant killings and all those involved to be brought to book.
It would be recalled that despite the Peace talk between the Commissioner of Police, CP Umar Garba between Aiyee fraternity members and Vickings Fraternity members on 31st December at Trig Point Hotel , members of other cult groups have continued to kill each other.
As at December 12 members were killed, one was killed at Umudiana Amikwo, another close to Ogbalingba while others were shot at different parts of Awka.

The traditional institution in Awka and the Town Union leadership have been in crisis over the rightful occupant of the throne and town union but efforts to get Chief Amobi Nwokafor, PhD, President General, Awka Development Union Nigeria (ADUN) on one side or the traditional ruler of Awka , Obi Gibson Nwosu on the other side to comment on the issue was too unsuccessful.
