Three lives have reportedly been lost in renewed clash involving rival cult groups in Eket Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom state.


A source who spoke on condition of anonymity in Eket told NAN on Wednesday that the clash occurred on Monday, June 21 at a renowned area called Idung Afianwe in Eket.


He said the killing of the trio resulted from a fight between two rival cult groups – Axe Confraternity and Klans over a girl at a popular spot at Afaha Ukwa Street, Eket.


The source, who claims to be a member of one of the cult groups said: “the fracas started on Monday, June 21 and we lost a vibrant young man.”


“We all know the clubhouse at Afaha Uqua, where they sell all sorts of hard and contraband drugs and where those loose girls hang around. All the cult wars in Eket start from there and it’s high time the government shuts the place to stop all these cult wars in Eket”


According to him, one Klans cult member and two Axe cult members have so far been killed in the renewed cult war.


It is not clear if the incident is related to the one that led to the sealing off of two brothels by Eket Local Government Chairman, Akaniyene Tommey.


When the News Agency of Nigeria contacted the spokesperson of the State Police Command, SP Odiko Macdon, he said that the Command had not received any report on the incident.


“I have not received any report on the incident. However, we shall investigate and get back to you. We will get the needed contacts, but I can’t talk now,’’ Macdon stated.
