27 yrs old barber killed by suspected cultists in Benin

A 27-year-old barber was on Tuesday shot dead by gunmen suspected to be cultists at New Benin in Ikpoba Okha Local Government Area of Edo State.
It was learnt that the late barber, simply identified as Patrick, was accosted by his assailants in front of his shop and shot at a close range.

According to Punch, another man was reportedly killed ‎at about 7am, at Second East Circular road, in Benin, the state capital.
This brings to six the number persons said to have been killed by suspected cultists, four of which were reportedly shot dead last weekend.
It was gathered that the cult clashes might be a fallout of a scuffle at one of the polling units in the state capital, during the March 28 election, which led to the death of a member of one of the cult groups.

The Edo State Police Public Relations Officer,  DSP Stephen Onwochei, could, however, not be reached for comments on the incidents as of the time of filing this report.
