Edo State Auchi Cult Clash Claims The Life Of A Corp MemberA Corps member, Irale Obas, and one other person were killed in a reprisal cult clash that occured on Sunday, in Iyakpi, near Auchi, the administrative headquarters of Etsako West Local Government Area of Edo State.
The two were killed at different locations in the community, following the earlier killing of one Sikiru Jeliu on Saturday night by a rival cult group.
It was gathered that the victims were killed to retaliate the murder of the brother to the leader of one of the confraternity groups. The leader’s younger brother who was his look-alike, was killed in a mistaken identity.

“What another waste of a generation! My friend whom we were not just school mates but class mates back then in our secondary school days, to them life must be taking out of him not because of any other obvious reason but because he was a rival CULT MEMBER, pls folks I have been saying this time without numbers, let’s ensure we dissociate our self’s from any CULTISM related activities because the end result is always very pathetic! REST IN PEACE ” Irale Obas we shall meet to part no me. # saynoto cultism”
