Suspected cultists attack policemen
Youths suspected to be cultists yesterday attacked some policemen sent to maintain law and order in Effium community, Ohaukwu local government area of Ebonyi State.
Confirming the incident, the Caretaker Chairman of the Local government, Clement Odaah, explained that the policemen were drafted to quell the free-for-all fight that erupted in Effium over a Market Revalidation Committee, constituted by the council chairman to revalidate all the shops in Inikiri market in the area.
It was gathered that the council boss was aggrieved that a native of the area first alerted the state Commissioner of Police, Peace Ibekwe Abdallah, over the boiling security situation in the area that led to the deployment of the policemen, as the chairman was accused of complicity in the crisis.
