Cult Members Kill 4 People In Anambra State

The traditional ruler of Obosi community in Idemili North Local Government Area of Anambra State, His Majesty, Igwe Chidubem Iweka has confirmed the death of four persons in the area, while 15 others were critically injured in a renewed violent clash between two suspected cult groups in the area.
In a petition to the Speaker of Anambra State House of Assembly dated March 11, 2014 and made available to newsmen last weekend in his palace at Obosi,  Iweka noted that Obosi Kingdom is now under siege and had been overrun by cultists resulting in serial cult wars.
According to the petition written on his behalf by his legal counsel, Austin Oguejiofor, the cultists, armed with guns and other dangerous weapons, murdered Mr Pope Okeleke and Mr Tochukwu Obidiozor from Ugamuma Village, Obosi.
In the petition entitled: “For your information and necessary action in respect of the return of violent killings and cultism in Obosi Kingdom,” the monarch also mentioned Mr Odinaka Umolu and one other unidentified person from Ire Village, Obosi as those equally murdered by the cultists, adding that the police and local vigilance group had been completely overwhelmed by the menace of the cultists.
He regretted that the activities of the hoodlums came to its epoch a few days ago when it was discovered that army patrol in the town had lessened as the cultists now have a field day killing and maiming people, including innocent citizens.
In the petition which was also copied to the Army, the police, DSS and National Assembly, the monarch expressed the fear that his investigation had revealed that the cultists are planning to invade his palace because they view him as the arrow head in the war against cultism in the area.
He, therefore, urged the speaker and other stakeholders to take urgent steps to set Obosi Kingdom free from the jugulars of the cultists.    
Meanwhile, Anambra State Director of State Security Service, Mr Alex Okeiyi, has confirmed the killings in Obosi but said he does not know the actual number of casualties so far recorded in the bloody saga.
 Obosi is the home town of former Commonwealth Secretary General, Chief Emeka Anyaoku; the Corps Marshal, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Osita Chidoka, former Minister of State for Aviation, Chief Dan Chuke, among other prominent Nigerians.
