Three persons are feared killed in the Amawbia community, near Awka, the Anambra State capital.

A source, who spoke to newsmen, said the killing was not unconnected to persistent cult clashes in the state capital.

There have been a series of killings in Awka and environs for close to two years, and they have been said to be related to tussles by rival cult groups in the state.

A source who disclosed the killing said: “It happened this afternoon, very close to the house of the National Chairman of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Mr Victor Oye.

“We were coming back from church when we noticed that there was a problem. When we asked, we were told of the killing. When we moved a little further, we now saw a dead body, but we were told that three people were killed in all.

“Some people even said that one of the persons who was killed was a security guard who works with APGA chairman.”

Attempts to confirm the death of the persons and the circumstances of their death from the Anambra State Police command was not successful.

The spokesperson of the Anambra State Police Command, DSP Toochukwu Ikenga, was yet to reply to messages sent to his telephone line as at the time of filing this report.
