The renewed cult clash has sparked fear and unrest among residents in Rivers state. According to reports, two men were killed and beheaded by cult group in Ubima community in Ikwerre local government area of the state ( the country home of Minister of Transport, Rt. Hon Rotimi Amaechi).
The shocking incident reportedly happened on Sunday night and till now, no one has been arrested in connection with the gruesome killings.
Earlier this year, two cult gangs, Icelanders and Deygbam, allegedly fighting a political superiority battle have turned Ubima community in Ikwerre Local Government Area, Rivers State, into a battleground. In one of the gory encounters, fear gripped the entire community after one of the cult groups killed about three suspected members of a rival cult.
A number of chiefs and elders have fled the community and taken refuge in neighboring towns because of the atmosphere of insecurity in the town. The boys, who are on the prowl, monitor movements in and out of the community and harass any visitors to the community.
