Members of a vigilante group in Ughelli, Delta State, Wednesday, denied complicity in the murder of one Avwerosuo Idoro, describing the statement linking them with the killing as false.

Some youths had, last Sunday, protested the killing of a 28-year-old man, with some accusing the vigilante group from Ughelli as being responsible for the murder.

Briefing newsmen, yesterday, chairman of the Ughelli vigilante team, Mr. Matthew Ofiakpovworo, said they got a distress call from a petrol station operator at 10pm that there was a clash between two rival cult groups at Afiesere Junction.

He said: “We immediately mobilised and by the time we got to the scene, we met the said Avwerosuo and one other in the pool of their own blood. We took them to the police station along with another young boy with a sack of India hemp and by the time we got to the station, the Divisional Police Officer ordered that Avwerosuo and the other, who also sustained injury, be taken to the hospital for medical attention.

“So we dropped them at the hospital and left, only for us to hear the following morning that the said Avwerosuo had died. I wonder why they are linking us with the killing, when we were only on a rescue mission.

“We were surprised that the boys who protested the death of Avwerosuo last Sunday morning later in the night mobilised and stormed the private residence of some of our members and destroyed their property. I wonder why our rescue mission is being misrepresented.”
