Two Women And A 25 Year Old Boy Shot Dead In Benin Cult War

cultists went on rampage Monday evening in Benin, Edo State capital, killing two mothers when they attacked the homes of some of their targets.

This came as a youth leader in the state,
Mr. Tony Adun, alias Tony Kabaka, who raised an alarm over the spate of cult-
related killings in the state, called on the
state government and the state House of
Assembly to urgently set up a task force
against cultism in the state to check the
excesses of the perpetrators.

No fewer than 25 persons, according to
him, have been killed by cultists in the
state in the past two weeks.

The armed men were said to have stormed Virginia Junction by Murtala Muhammed Way, at about 8pm in search of their target, said to be a 25-year-old boy

They were said to have gone to the store
belonging to the mother of their target, but when they queried the woman about the whereabouts of the son, she was said to have told them that she had not set her eyes on him for over two weeks.

The armed men were said to have gone to
the residence of the boy and found him at
home. They killed him, went back to the
woman’s shop and shot her dead.

In New Benin area, the gun-men shot their target’s mother as they could not find him.

Over 10 persons have died in the past
week in the renewed cult war, to which
the police command in the state is yet to
find a solution.
