From Blessing Ibunge, Port Harcourt
A suspected cultist has lost his life in what seem to be a reprisal attack at the mid hours of Thursday in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
It was gathered that a suspected Deygbam cult member known as Saidu (aka F-Man) was rounded up by suspected Iceland cult members at about 12noon on Thursday along Ogbuagu/Wokoma street, Mile 3 Diobu, Port Harcourt and stabbed severally.
The AUTHORITY further gathered that the stabbed suspect managed to escaped and was rushed to a hospital located at Ojoto/Azikiwe roundabout, Mile 2 diobu but reportedly died on arrival at the hospital.
On confirming that he is dead, it was learned that his suspected cult members quickly evacuated his corpse with an ambulance to unknown destination.
