14 Dead And Many Injured As Cult Groups Clash In Rivers State
A massacre in Sime, Tai Local Government Area of Ogoniland, Rivers State has left 14 persons dead and many injured.
The latest bloodbath in the south-south state is reportedly as a result of clashes between cult groups in the early hours of Friday.
The Caretaker Committee Chairman of Tai Local Government, Mr. Bob Uelor Nkue, condemned the massacre, saying a situation in which only a few of the cultists surrendered their weapons and denounced their cultist acts despite the overtures by the governor was unacceptable..
Nkue called on residents not to flee the area as security operatives had taken control of the situation.
“I totally condemn this attack that led to the death of 14 persons, because the governor has given a second chance to cultists and criminals in Ogoniland to embrace the amnesty programme,”
“Few days ago, two persons were also killed by cult gangs. I am using this opportunity to call on the people of Sime not to panic as the police and other security agencies are on top of the situation.”
