Cult Group Strike Kills Over 400 Rivers' Resident

No fewer than 400 natives of Ekpeye ethnic group have been killed in Ahoada East and Ahoada West Local Government Areas of Rivers State as result of cult-related activities within the last two years.
One of the leaders in the area and former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Chief Chibudom Nwuche, made this disclosure when he paid a solidarity visit to Eze Ekpeye Logbo, His Royal Majesty, Eze Robinson O. Robinson, at his hometown in Odiereke community, Ahoada West LGA.
According to Nwuche, the communities of Ekpeye were yet to recover from the tragedies that befell them within the few years.
He lamented that the Ekpeye ethnic nationality, one of the largest groups and major oil producing community was being marginalized.
“When you take a drive around our roads, you see that our roads are not passable. I call on government because we support and work for them to come to our aid. Our people are marginalised.
“We lost over 400 souls; some were beheaded, many women were raped. Many were killed innocently. For the first time in over two years, we have come home to celebrate Christmas.
“I think the amnesty has added value and should be encouraged. All they ought to do is to ensure that these boys should be given a means of livelihood.
“I urge our people to support the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government and the state government to succeed. We should support his fight against corruption. Be law abiding and protect the oil facilities in our area,” he said.
