Gunmen suspected to be cultists Saturday night killed eight persons including the oldest man in Ozochi, Ahoada East LGA of Rivers State in an attack believed to be a reprisal.

A source from the community said the cult members invaded the community, shooting sporadically, but could not confirm which group carried out the act or the motive.

They also set shops and other property ablaze.

The Caretaker Committee Chairman of Ahoada East LGA, Britain Okpara Ewor and the lawmaker representing the constituency in the state House of Assembly, Edison Ehie, in separate statements, confirmed the incident, as well as the state police spokesman, Ahmad Muhammad.

Ewor, who spoke through his media aide, Monday Oyagiri, condemned the attack, describing the perpetrators as enemies of the state.   Similarly, Ehie urged security operatives in the state to investigate the killing and ensure that the culprits are punished.
