Cult war claims 28-year-old man in Bayelsa – From Kingsley Okorie/Yenagoa

Bayelsa Gov. Douye Diri

A 28-year-old man Victor Namabebe, has reportedly lost his life following violent rivalry and clash between notorious cult groups – the Greenlanders and the Bobos at Amarata, a suburb of Yenagoa, the Bayelsa state capital.

The spokesman of Bayelsa State Police Command, Musa Mohammed, an Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) who confirmed the incident on Wednesday, said the bloody clash occurred on Tuesday night.

He explained that the corpse of the deceased has been deposited at the morgue.

According to him, “at about 9 pm, on Tuesday, one Chief Emmanuel Namabebe reported at the A Division of the Nigeria Police that his 28-year-old son, Victor Namabebe, was found dead at Amarata area of the state capital.

“Police personnel from the A Division mobilised to the area and found the victim. Upon examination, he was found with various grievous injuries on the head.”

Sources in the neighbourhood said that the deceased had stormed the Amarata/Ebis Mechanic area with some group of boys suspected to be members of the Greenlanders against a member of Bobos who had earlier allegedly ‘crossed’ (encountered) them.

It was learnt from residents of the area that the fierce battle between the rival cult groups involved the use of guns and other dangerous weapons.

It was also gathered that many of the residents, who were trapped at various football viewing centres at around 8 pm for the EUFA Champion league matches, abandoned the game and scampered home for safety.

The victim was reported to have been left in his own pool of blood with various degree of head injuries.

The suspected cult groups spots at Apex Academy Road, OMPADEC, Ebis Mechanic in Amarata axis of the state capital are on alert for fear of reprisal attacks over the death of the victim.
