For the residents of Bunker, old UNTH Enugu, Wednesday night was like a horror movie as two rival cult groups attacked each other in the area leading to the death of one while another is missing with his blood spattered everywhere.
The two cult groups, Jungle Journalist Media Ltd learnt, are Ayes and Baggars whose members unleashed terror on one another, leading to the mowing down of a member of Baggars confraternity by Ayes cult group.
According to the report, a member of Ayes group is still at large, but the Bunker site where the attack took place is currently littered in human blood.
An eye witness who narrated the incident described it as a “horrible incident” that forced them to run for safety.
“We were relaxing last night when we heard that someone has just been killed in a place called ‘F Line’ and there was pandemonium everywhere.
“The person killed belongs to Baggars cult group and his assailants were wearing masks.
“His name is Iruka from Ezza area of Ebonyi State and his remains has been deposited at Colliery mortuary, Enugu.
“One of Ayes member who allegedly led the attack popularly known as Chibuzo from Nsukka area of Enugu State was traced to his girlfriend’s house in the middle of the night, his girlfriend jumped the fence while the body of Chibuzo is still missing but his blood was found everywhere,” the witness who craved anonymity narrated.
A member of the local vigilante in the area, Okuiyi Amalgamated Neighborhood Watch gave a vivid account of the incident; “What happened yesterday was a result of the protracted cold war between the rival groups. Members of Baggars beat up a member of Aye one Sunday in July and the Ayes in retaliation, went in their numbers to beat up any member of Baggars on sight.
“The circle continued until the members of Baggers saw this Chibuzo that his body is missing now and beat him to pulp. We even reported these incidents to the police but the boys keep evading arrest.
“It’s these clashes back and forth that gave rise to what happened yesterday and it was purely a revenge mission and painfully, one person has been confirmed dead and we can’t even confirm if the Chibuzo is still alive.”
