A suspected cult group on Thursday 28th July, reportedly killed a father and his son in Makurdi, Benue State.
ASP Daniel Akogwu (retired) was said to have been killed alongside his son by a cult group. Akogwu’s son, is allegedly a member of the group.
A neighbour who identified himself as Mr Adah said that
“the cult group laid ambush around Akogwu’s apartment. It was when the mother of the boy, a food seller, who usually came out early to prepare for her business, opened the door that she stormed into them and started shouting.
The screaming of the mother reportedly attracted the deceased’s husband’s attention.
He quickly took his cutlass behind his bed and ran out to find out why the wife was shouting. It was at that point that the cult boys opened fire and killed him instantly.
They sighted the son and also shot at him and killed him too.
Mr Adah said that the killers attempted to set the corpses and their home ablaze but the arrival of the police stopped them.
The police spokesman in the state, ASP Moses Yamu, confirmed the incident.
