Serious tension gripped Auchi, Edo State, on Tuesday as rival cult factions clashed violently, leading to the reported killing of an alleged member of the Eiye group in the presence of his daughter.

According to social media reports, the perpetrators believed to be members of the Aye Confraternity, arrived at the scene in a Lexus car.

NaijaConfra, a social-media-based platform dedicated to the eradication of cultism-related killings in Nigeria, reported the incident on X on Wednesday.

Naija Confra revealed that the violence was a retaliatory strike orchestrated by members of the Aye group in response to an earlier attack on an Aye member identified as Emma, who was killed on Monday in Auchi.

“Naija Confra can now confirm that the Aye member named Emma, eliminated in Auchi on Monday, whose assailants were initially unknown, was indeed carried out by members of Eiye, as the events of yesterday was a retaliation for that attack,” it wrote on its X page.

The reports indicate that despite the presence of the victim’s daughter, the assailants attacked hastily, abandoning their vehicle and weapons.

Members of vigilante groups in the area were said to have pursued the assailants, prompting them to flee the scene.

Naija Confra disclosed that the incident occurred behind Farnet in Auchi.

A video shared online showed the deceased lying lifelessly on the floor.

Another video showed the car allegedly abandoned by the perpetrators.

The Edo State Police Command has yet to issue an official statement regarding the incident.

He asked our correspondent to call him back in an hour while he confirmed the incident.
