Cultists Kill 2 Policemen and 5 Others in Rivers State, Set Houses Ablaze

According to Punch,  two policemen and five other persons have been killed in a fresh cult clash that erupted on Sunday in Rumuji and Ovogo communities in the Emohua Local Government Area of Rivers State.

A battle for supremacy which has been ongoing between the Icelanders and the Greenlanders cult groups in Rumuji and Ovogo communities was said to have erupted again.

According to reports, one of the cult groups invaded the Rumuji Police Station and shot dead the two officers that were on duty before breaking into some houses in Rumuji and Ovogo communities, shooting and killing their victims.

The cultists also reportedly set ablaze several buildings suspected to be owned by members of a rival cult group or their families. Thankfully, security operatives later arrived in the community and were able to bring the situation under control.

In February, the Icelanders claimed responsibility for the bombing of an Agip Oil gas facility in Akala Olu village in Rivers state. You can read about it here.

The new Public Relations Officer of the Rivers State Police Command, Mr Omoni Nnamdi revealed yesterday that he is yet to be briefed on the incident because he just resumed duty in the command.

“I just resumed duty today and I have not been briefed on anything because I just resumed today. I just entered office and no official handover has been done. If I am briefed, I will communicate to you,” he said.
