Stray Bullet Kills Judiciary Staff As Easter Sunday Cult Clash Leaves Many Dead In Awka

The Easter celebration turned bloody as suspected cultists reportedly gunned down yet-to-be-ascertained number of persons in Anambra State.

The incident was said to have happened at Opposite Dike Park, around the Eke Awka Market, in Awka, the State capital, where the rampaging cultists reportedly stormed in their numbers.

According to sources, the incident happened in the noon hours of Sunday, and also escalated to the Obunagu village, where few more persons were also gunned down by the cultists.

While the total number of casualties recorded in the incident is yet to be ascertained, it was gathered that one of the persons hit by bullet was a staff of the Anambra State Judiciary, simply identified as Izuu Nwofor, who was said to be innocently going about his normal business before the cultists struck.
This was corroborated by a video currently trending on the social media, showing bodies of two of the persons gunned down in the Eke Awka environ. While one of the victims was seen still struggling in pains for his dear life in the pool of his blood beside his motorcycle where he fell, passersby were seen scampering for their safety.
