With the NBM’s Henry Idahagbon no longer in his position of Attorney General perhaps Chris Ezike’s “Special Squad” will have more success this time around.
More persons have been killed in the ongoing cult war between eiye and aiye confraternities in Benin City, Edo state.
At Sokponba road, son of a Benin Chief was shot and rushed to the hospital where doctors are battling to save him.
Several other persons have been killed in different parts of the state especially in Murtala Mohammed Way, Second East circular and other areas.
A headless body suspected to be related to cult killing was Tuesday morning found at Third Junction by Ikpoba Slope.
However, to curb the cult killings, it was gathered the Inspector General of Police drafted a special squad to the state.
The Special Squad was said to have contacted a former Edo Commissioner of Police, Chris Ezike, to help them tackle cultism in Edo.
Ezike once led a special squad to Edo where cult leaders including those serving in the then administration of Adams Oshiomhole were arrested, paraded and detained for several days.
The intervention of Ezike saw many cultists fled the state and cult related killings stopped.
Sources said the Special Squad has begun raiding of black spots.
