The lives of a beautiful young lady identified as Chinenye and her boyfriend, Chinedu Nwode have been tragically cut short by suspected cultists at Oriuzor community in Ezza North Local Government Area of Ebonyi state on Sunday, November 29.
The killings reportedly followed a renewed clash between two rival cults in the state, the Baggers and Aye confraternities.
According to reports, Chinenye and Chinedu were returning from a child dedication in Oriuzor to Onueke when they were shot dead.
Spokesperson of the State Police Command, DSP Loveth Odah, while reacting to the sad event, condemned the killings as she said ;
“This is bad and I don’t know why these things are more often heard of in this area. This is condemnable and it’s unfortunate that those who lost their loved ones to these crises have not come up to identify themselves. How can these things be happening in that place and these are brothers and they are just killing themselves,” said Odah.
“On hearing this ugly news, the Ebonyi State Commissioner of Police, Mr Philip Maku, deployed men of the command in the area to ensure that more lives are not lost. The police are investigating the matter and soon, we will tell you what really happened.”
