The cult violence raging in some 

communities in Emohua and Ikwerre local 

government areas of Rivers State has 


Our correspondent reports that there has 

been another attack at Omudioga community 

in Emohua, where many houses have been 

destroyed  and at least one person killed.

The Chairman of the Community Development 

Committee, BRIGHT AYAELE, told our 

correspondent on telephone than armed 

cultists stormed the area in the early 

hours of today.

AYAELE, who said he was calling from 

hiding, said the armed men fired random 

gunshots, knocking down houses and setting 

others on fire.

He said the entire inhabitants of Omudioga 

community have been sacked, while there 

were no security operatives at the time of 

filing the report.

The latest cult violence at Omudioga comes 

hours after the community stakeholders had 

raised alarm about the impending attack 

and requested for increased security 

surveillance in the area.

You will recall that at least seven 

persons were killed within Omudioga when 

the latest cult clashes erupted over the 

weekend, including four who were beheaded.

The violence also spread to neighbouring 

Omerelu community in Ikwerre Local 

Government Area where two persons were 

also killed on Sunday.
