There was pandemonium in Old Welfare Road in Warri South council area of Delta State, yesterday, as rival cult groups engaged in a free-for-all that left many with injuries.
The vigilante group reportedly shot and injured one of the suspected cultists simply identified as Morku in a bid to quell the crisis.
The vigilante group promptly called the Police for back up and possible arrests of the suspect and others.
However, before the arrival of Policemen at the scene, the injured suspect was taken away from the area to an unknown destination. Policemen on arrival reportedly traced the suspect with his bloodstains on the road but could not get him.
The rival cult groups, who used dangerous weapons, including guns during the encounter, also maimed, injured and dispossessed residents of the area of their personal belongings.
