From Ahmad Mohammed Bauchi
One person was killed yesterday in Bauchi in a clash that ensued between two rival cults.
Members of a cult group were said to have killed a member of a rival group, Dindira Yusuf in Bauchi state.
The State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Kamal Datti Abubakar confirmed the incident, saying that one person was killed in a cult rivalry clash along Bauchi Dass road in the state.
Datti said that the deceased sustained fatal injuries as a result of the knife that was used in stabbing him, adding that he was rushed to the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Teaching Hospital Bauchi, where he died.
He said investigation into the case was ongoing and efforts were on top gear to arrest the perpetrators of the dastardly act.
Some of the eye witnesses told reporters that the cultists trailed the deceased to a E4 resort along Bauchi to Dass road and stabbed him with a knife on the chest severally because of disagreement during a party organised by some youths in the area.
At the time of filing this report, the rival cult group where the deceased belonged, disrupted the burial of the deceased at the Yelwa cemetery.
The group who attended the burial were aggrieved over the death of their colleague and insisted that the killer of the deceased must be fished out before the burial.
It took the intervention of security agents who were deployed to the area to restore normalcy and proceed with the burial.
