There is no end in sight over the cult killings in Benin City, the Edo State Capital as a young man narrowly escaped from being hacked down by suspected cultists in 2nd East circular area in Benin on Tuesday evening.

The battle for supremacy between suspected members of the Black Axe Confraternity and their rival Supreme Eiye Confraternity which reportedly started December 21, 2023 has claimed over 30 lives in Benin as at press time.

It was gathered that cult killings were triggered by the brutal killing of a member of the Eiye Confraternity, simply identified as ‘Lagbaja’, whose head was severed on December 22, 2023.

The development, according to sources led to the reprisal attack on members of the Black Axe Confraternity, whose three members were gunned down at Imagbenikaro Street, Off Siluko Road in Benin, by suspected Eiye members on December 24, 2023.
