the hoodlums arrived the community in a motorcycle convoy, robbing them from house to house, and killing the three persons.

An eyewitnesses, who gave his name as Johnson Akpakpan averred that the hoodlums accosted one Mrs Choice Etuk’s step son before killing him and escaping with his brand new motor cycle. According to him, the hoodlums suspected to be cultists from neighbouring communities then proceeded to one Elder Sunday Jumbo’s compound and killed the second and the third victims and bolted away with “POS” machine .

Another eyewitness who pleaded anonymity described the killing as cult related as the hoodlums came from neighbouring local government for the operations.

“I cannot establish whether the group is Debalm or Iceland confraternities but we are suspecting that they are not robbers . If they were robbers, they would have collected the motorcycle, money and ‘POS’ machine without killing the victims.

“We are shocked that this incident has returned to our community after the whole village was deserted last year because of cult related killings.
