Suspected cultists gun down man, pregnant wife in Delta

Gunmen suspected to be cultists have shot dead one Mr Bobby Kabah and his pregnant wife in Ogwashi-Uku, Aniocha South Local Government Area of Delta State. 

The incident happened against the backdrop of the ongoing cult clashes between members of rival cult groups in the community.

The cult clashes on Wednesday night threw the community into confusion, panic, and mourning.

A community source, who spoke on condition of anonymity explained that the victim, Kabah, was relaxing with his pregnant wife at home in Agidiasei quarters when two gunmen walked into his house around 8.35 pm and opened fire on them.

He said, “Bobby was at home with his woman because he is nursing an injury on his leg as a result of a motorbike accident he had recently.

“The gunmen entered his home from the back, met him and his pregnant wife and opened fire, killing both of them instantly.”

The ongoing cult war in Ogwashi-Uku has so far claimed six lives in the last two weeks.

When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Bright Edafe, on Thursday confirmed the killings.

He said, “Yes, it is confirmed, they are not husband and wife, but they were living and killed in the same house.”
