Eyewitnesses confirmed that three persons, one in Erunmwense area off Ekenwan Road, another by Lucky Way in Upper Mission road, a third near Ogbe area and another near Ogida, were found dead.

It was learnt that one of the dead just finished his Masters degree programme from the University of Benin.

Meanwhile suspected cultists, Monday, attacked The Nation newspaper reporter, Mr Ben Ogbemudia, along Eke Street, in Upper Sakpoba Road, in Benin City.

Trouble was said to have started for Ogbemudia when the hoodlums ordered him to repark his car which was near his wife’s residence.

According to him, he had reparked his car in the sandy street when the suspected assailants in a Nissan Almera marked Edo DGE 382 AA with three occupants identified simply as Emwanta, Adult and Osaretin attacked him and inflicted a deep machete cut on his left hand.

    people are complaining but nobody has said the truth, the edo state government has empowered these cultist, it is a known fact that the edo state goverment favours thugs to the decent people in the state. You should see how people now repect thugs (kabaka) (nomoreless) like kings and you expect the town to be peaceful when other younger ones are looking up to the exceses of thier superiors. only people who carry guns are given key positions in the state. 80% or more of the government officials in edo state are cultist so dont expect any improvement in the security situations. Even the issues of youth leaders have contributed to the cult activies in the state.
