More persons have been killed in Benin City, the Edo State capital, by suspected rival cult groups.
The latest was Thursday’s killing of three youths in the New Benin area of Benin City. Witnesses said the killers openly displayed their arms after the killings. Two others were killed at Upper Sakponba according to security sources.
Over 13 persons have been killed in different parts of Benin City since the cult war began last weekend.
Police spokesman, DSP Joseph Edogiawerie, could not be reached for comments on the latest killings, but he had earlier confirmed the arrest of some persons in relation to the ongoing cult war.
