Residents Flee As Cultists Clash In Delta Community

Residents of Orhuwhorun community in Udu Local Government Area of Delta State have been gripped with fear as lives have been lost in clashes among suspected cultists.

The clashes had forced some resident to flee while businesses had been shut for fear of being destroyed by the rampaging cult gangs.

LEADERSHIP learnt that killings, shootings and looting have continued despite the occasional presence of security operatives from the Ovwian-Aladja police station since last Sunday when the cult clashes began.
