A group of unknown men suspected to be cultists, have beheaded five people in Edeoha, Ahoada East LGA, Rivers state. According to sources, the cult group went in search of a herbalist in the village named Uwuma Ichocho aka Igwu after they got information that a rival cult member who sustained gunshot wounds went to him for treatment. Around 1am on Sunday, on reaching the home of Ichocho who specializes in extracting bullets from gunshot victims, they discovered that their targets were already treated and had been discharged.
The angry cultists descended on the herbalists household, killing two of his workers - his son, his son’s friend and the son of a police officer from a nearby Olakpata village who came to visit. The cultists shot one of the herbalist's wives and amputated both hands of the second wife.
