The cult war raging in the last six months in Agbor community and its environs, Delta State, reared its ugly head on Tuesday when suspected cultists operating in the areas allegedly killed two persons, including a pregnant woman.
Reports said the victims were killed and dumped by the roadside, thereby causing palpable tension.
It was gathered that police in the area have arrested several cult suspected members but upon interrogation and investigation, highly placed persons allegedly intervene to set them free.
The incident which took place around the Benin-Asaba Agbor expressway, took place at wee house with owners of the corpses yet to identify them.
Sources said one of the victim, a pregnant woman, a garri vendor, was stranded on the fateful day she was attacked.
Police sources at the divisional police headquarters said the police were on the trail of the suspected cultists, adding that two persons were arrested while the search for others continue.
Meanwhile, the corpses of the victims were taken to Agbor General Hospital Mortuary, while some persons who claimed to be relations of the deceased were seen crying profusely.
Agbor and its environs have been under the siege of cult related activities where several persons have been allegedly killed in the last few years.
When contacted for comment, Delta police spokesman, Celestina Kalu, said she was yet to get the report by the time of filling this report.
