At least 18 dead as cult war escalates in Edo State


No less than 18 deaths have been recorded in the ongoing cult war in Edo State, after a recent escalation.

An Assistant Commissioner of Police and the two other policemen were shot on Friday in the Sokponba axis of Benin, after being caught in the crossfire.


According to eyewitnesses, the cultists are freely using AK-47 rifles, machetes, battle axes and other dangerous weapon.


Recall that during the End SARS protest in the State, protesters attacked the Maximum Correctional Centre (White House) and the Medium Correctional Centre to free about 1,993 inmates, mostly cultists.
