Man shot in mouth as rival cults clash in Enugu


A young man, whose identity had not been ascertained, was hit by a bullet in the mouth following shootings by rival cult groups in Enugu state.

He was said to have been rushed to a hospital by the police.

It was gathered that the shootings, which occurred around 1pm, sent jitters down the spine of traders and residents, as people scampered in different directions.

The incident occurred at one of the motor parks in the market, which forced traders to close hurriedly, as motorists took to their heels.

“We heard gunshots and people started running in different directions. We thought unknown gunmen had come to the market. It was later we heard that it was a cult war. I did not go there, but I heard that the police came and took the injured young man away,” a source told PUNCH.

While confirming the incident in a statement, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Daniel Ndukwe, described the attack as unfortunate.

He said, “Following a distress call received at Awkunanaw Police Division today, June 3, around 1pm, alleging that a young man was shot by suspected cultists, along Agbani Road, close to Garriki Market, Awkunanaw Enugu, police operatives swiftly moved to the scene, secured and rushed the victim to a nearby hospital, where he is responding treatment.

“Meanwhile, the state Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Ndatsu Aliyu, has ordered the anti-cultism unit of the command to conduct discreet investigation to fish out and bring the assailants to book.”
