Gunmen suspected to be cultists have killed two unidentified young men in Awka, the Anambra State capital.



It was gathered that the incident occurred around 11:am on Tuesday, September 21, opposite Udoka housing estate, along Enugu-Onitsha expressway, close to the NNPC mega petrol station, Awka.

A witness said the victims were shot at close range by their assailants before they drove off. 

I saw them. They just shot the two guys who were businessmen in the area and drove off. Nothing was taken from them. I suspect it’s a case of assassination or business rivalry.” the witness told The Nation.



However, spokeperson of the State Police Command, DSP Toochukwu Ikenga, who confirmed the incident said the killings was as a result of two rival cult clashes.



He explained that the gunmen who drove in a Mercedes 190 car, shot their victims who were walking on the street around 12.30 pm and drove off to an unknown destination.
