Fierce looking cultists, at the weekend, attacked Eku Police Station in Ethiope East Local Government Area of Delta State, and allegedly vandalized property worth millions of naira before setting free inmates at the station cell. It was gathered that the cultists also sacked Eku Community with guns, cutlasses, axes and bottles, leaving passers-by scamper for safety.

Police image maker in the state, DSP Andrew Aniamaka, who confirmed the incident, said the cultists vandalized several vehicles, disclosing that six of them were currently being detained for further investigation.

While urging residents of Eku to go about their normal businesses, as normalcy had returned to the area, DSP Aniamaka assured that those who were responsible for the mayhem would be brought to book.

“We are not taking it kindly at all, some of the suspects are currently being detained, and we will get to the root cause of the mayhem”

Eye witness said the cultists were dressed in black clothing with red caps, and stormed the police station chanting war songs around 9.30pm on Friday.

They allegedly engaged the policemen on duty in a gun battle before they set the cell inmates free.

An indigene of Eku Community, John Ogbokowu who spoke to our reporter, said “the perpetrators of the crime were the same Eiye (Bird) cult, and Vikkings also called Aro-Bagers cult groups that have been disturbing the community since 2016.

“The community had not been willing to do anything to arrest the situation because most of their children are members of the dreaded cult groups”.

Since 2016, Eli community has been facing attacks from suspected cultists, especially the Vikkings and Eiye confraternities, who destroyed property worth millions of naira and killed over thirty persons.
