EKO HOT BLOG reports that In Bayelsa, a 30-year-old man was beheaded as cultists fought for supremacy
In a rekindled cult battle in Bayelsa State, some armed teenagers killed a man named Honest Martin.
According to our sources, the event occurred on Wednesday in Sagbama, the state’s headquarters for the Sagbama Local Government Area.
A supremacy war involving members of the Bobos, Greenlanders, and Icelanders cults is said to have prompted the slaughter.
Around 1.45 a.m., the intruders broke into Martin’s residence, pulled him outside, and hacked off his head.
According to a source, the hoodlums then exhibited the 30-year-severed old’s head on a stake around the region.
He said, “We gathered that he was shouting, but the guys slit his throat and cut off his head. When we woke up in the morning, we discovered the headless body of the victim.
“Upon further search for the missing head, we discovered it hanged on a pole at the centre of the town. We were later told it was a clear message of war against their rival cult, which the deceased belonged to.”
The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Asinim Butswat, confirmed the incident.
He said, “On March 9, 2022, around 2am, police operatives were informed that a suspected cultist, Honest Martin, 30, was found outside his house at Sagbama community beheaded by a suspected rival cult. Police operatives took the corpse to St. Luke Mortuary, Sagbama. Investigation is ongoing.”
