Cultists on Tues­day night invaded Umuelele Irete in the Owerri West Lo­cal Government Area of Imo State and gunned down 23 years old, Mr Decency Chibundu, in a clash between Vikings and Black axe cultists in the community.

A village source, who pleaded anonymity told, The AUTHORITY that the killing was in retalia­tion of the killing of a cult member who was killed in the community two weeks ago.

Already, villagers have abandoned the commu­nity in droves to avoid falling victims during any other reprisal attack.

The source said the kill­ing of Chibundu’s who was Vikings cult member was a revenge by Black Axe fraternity whose member was gunned down recently.

The source, who plead­ed anonymity said the community has been de­serted because the people are scared of the killings by the two rival cults. “We are living in fear, we can no longer sleep. It is one killing or shooting or the other every day. The annoying aspect is that these boys are not even in the high institutions.

They are just villagers who have seen cultism as a way of life”.
