Shock As Cultists Go Wid, Burn Police Station In Akwa Ibom

Some persons said to be cultists have attacked a police station in Akwa Ibom state.

The suspected cultists have burnt down a police outstation in Inen community in Oruk-Anam Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom, according to The Nation.

The incident, which occurred Monday night, was the latest in the orgy of rival clashes, killings and terrorism allegedly perpetrated by Iceland and Dbam confraternities in the last eight months.

The Nation reports that no fewer than 60 persons have so far been killed while hundreds of residents have fled their homes.

It was learnt that policemen at the outpost situated at the Inen Ekeffe ran away during the Monday night clash between the two rival groups.

An eyewitness, Mfonobong Okorie said, “They also barricaded the community road between Faith Tabernacle Church,  Inen Ikot Etim and the gate of Al Madal construction company where they snatched two motorcycles.

“Residents who wanted to visit their houses to obtain food items and rush back to their settlement camps  in neighbouring villages were trapped in the bush while the hoodlums molested and maimed anybody passing on the road,” Okorie said.

Okorie added that hours later, the cultists regrouped and moved towards  Inen Junction where they  burnt down the police sub-station at about 7pm chanting war songs.“

Okorie said a former councillor’s house was destroyed  by the cultists earlier.

Police spokesman Odiko Mcdon confirmed the incident, saying the burnt building was a dilapidated structure rented as an outstation.
