Man Killed By Cultists Days To His Wedding After Fleeing For 5 Years (Photos)

A middle aged man, Abuchi Edekobi, reportedly lost his life on Saturday following a cult clash in Obosi, Idemili North area of Anambra State.

The deceased, allegedly killed together with his friend, Somto Egbe by a rival cult group, was said to be preparing for his wedding a week before he met his sudden death.

The duo, suspected to be members of Vikings fraternity, were allegedly attacked by a rival group suspected to be members of the fraternity.

A resident, who identified himself as Charles, said the attack by the rival group was a revenge mission over recent steady killings of their members in the area.

He said, “Edekobi, popularly called Ija, had left Obosi for Ghana at the heat of the cult crisis where he spent about five years before his return. He was preparing for his wedding scheduled to hold on the 29th of this month before he met his untimely death.

“He was even in a burial party the same day he died and was sighted spraying money on a notable musician without knowing he was being trailed by those who later killed him.”
