A man has met his untimely death in a renewed cult clash in Calabar, Cross River state. It was gathered that the man identified as Mr. Mesembe, an aspirant contesting for the position of a Councillor in Calabar South Local Government Area Ward 8 was shot dead late in the night at Eyo Ita Street.
According to eyewitnesses, Mr. Mesembe met his death after being found standing on the street by suspected Vikings and Skylow members whom people say had mobilised for a hit, and when they could not find the person, spotted Mesembe and after a shout from one of them that he was the one, was shot and cut with machetes several times.
His death came 24 hours after a fight between the Skylow gang and Scorpion gang on Sunday night had led to the death of a Scorpion member in Ekpo Abasi.
