Two persons were gunned down on Tuesday night as rival cult groups clashed at Akara junction along Iyara road in Warri South Local Government Area of Delta State.
DAILY POST reports that one person who sustained gunshot wounds escaped from the scene of the incident.
Details as to why the deceased were shot dead were still sketchy at the time of filing this report.
It was also not clear if the deceased were members of any of the cult groups.
When contacted, the Delta State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Onome Onovwakpoyeya confirmed the report in a telephone chat with Our Correspondent in Warri.
She said, “Three people were shot. Two died. That one of those who died was already on the wanted list. He was among those who killed somebody too. A cult activity too.”
