A local citizen who requested anonymity verified to our correspondent that the dead were suspected cultists killed by rival gang members.
According to the insider, rival cultists fighting for power have terrorized the neighborhood on a daily basis.
It’s a horrible, wicked, and brief life here.
“There were three casualties just last night,” he claimed.
Recall that according to Gossipinfo, four persons were presumed dead during a cult rivalry confrontation in Gboko, Benue State, between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, September 15th, 2021.
According to him, the region is currently in chaos, with people fearing retaliation from competing culture gangs tonight.
“It’s certain that tonight will be bloody,” he said.
Despite all of the homicides in the neighborhood, no one has been apprehended, according to the source.
“The cops are not unaware of it,” he added when asked if they are aware of the alarming scenario. They are well aware of how they operate.”
