Many people were feared dead after two warring cult groups terrorizing residents of Anambra state clashed in a bloody war.

Cult members killed about 15 persons during a bloody clash between Aiye And Vikings members in Awka, Awka South Local Government Area of Anambra State.

According to Daily Independent, the sad incident took place on Sunday during the Imo Awka annual cultural celebration.

It was gathered that around 7.30 pm on Saturday night, a young man was shot at Nkwelle Awka in front of his residence, 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 3pm on Sunday.

On the Imo Awka festival, two cult members were fighting in front of Isiagu Junction, Amikwo, Awka, by 4.30 pm before police and other security agents, including an anti-cult team, but they were not arrested.

However, on Sunday, Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) took over Amikwo and other villages searching for members of the cult groups.

The cult groups fighting were said to be ‘Aiyee’ and ‘Bagger’, but it spread to other unknown groups and by weekend 10 boys had been reportedly killed in Awka.

A police source in the office of the Commissioner of Police (CP) told Daily Independent unofficially that the CP was worried over the development and had dispatched a crack team to sniff out the cause of the rampant killings and all those involved.

Despite the peace talk between CP Umar Garba and the Aiyee Fraternity as well as and Vickings Fraternity on December 31, 2017 at Trig Point Hotel, members of other cult groups have continued to unleash mayhem on residents.
