Hoodlums suspected to be cultists have hacked a trader to death in Akamkpa Local Government Area of Cross River state.
It was gathered that the incident happened at the Cross River State College of Education, COE in Awi, Akamkpa on Friday, July 23.
The victim identified simply as “Omalor” who sold food and drinks inside the campus was reportedly macheted by the assailants until he died.
“Omalor was selling that day like every other day when the cultists went and killed him because he was trying to stop them,” an eyewitness told The Paradise.
“They cut him with machetes on his head, hands and other parts of the body several times and he bled to death. He was not a cultist. He has been selling there for over 20 years now. He sells drinks and food.”
