Five suspected cultists died in cold blood in rivalry attack.
The Commissioner of Police Anambra State Echeng Echeng has expressed anger at the cold heartedness of criminal elements in the society who have no regard for the sanctity of life of their fellow citizens.
Information was received from concerned citizens about the mayhem unleashed by cultists on rival cultists at the burial of a notorious cultist known as Ozo in Ebenebe, Awka North LGA, Anambra State.
In a statement signed by DSP Ikenga Tochukwu, PPRO Anamabra State, stated that no notification was given to the Police about the planned burial.
The Commissioner of Police Anambra immediately drafted Police Tactical Teams led by an Assistant Commissioner of Police to the town to protect the people against the rampaging cultists.
On the spot assessment indicate that not less than five suspected cultists were killed in cold blood. Some of the corpses had been removed by their relations.
Echeng while reacting restated that no one, no matter their grievance, has the right to take the life of another person.
The perpetrators of this crime will be hunted down until they are brought to justice CP Echeng assured.
Echeng implores the good citizens of Anambra State to continue to support the Police Command with timely information to enable it provide quality security for all residents and visitors alike.
