At least two have sustained serious injuries as cult groups in Obudu renew rivalry.

One of the victims whom CrossRiverWatch gathered is nicknamed “Lil Pee” according to a reliable source was attacked during the late hours of Sunday May 19, 2015 at the 9ice (pronounced nice) bite restaurant behind Mega Hilton hotel after allegedly slapping the girlfriend of one “Baff up” for spitting on him which infuriated the boyfriend leading to a “free for all” with the said Baff up breaking a bottle and stabbing Lil pee who was later rushed to an undisclosed clinic but was later stolen away by unknown men to an unknown location in the early hours of yesterday.

The other victim whom as at press time CrossRiverWatch could not gather his name, was also stabbed with a broken bottle at the Liyel Imoke civic center opposite the cenotaph of the unknown soldier at animal junction yesterday night. He was also rushed to an unknown destination by ‘colleagues’ after the tension had doused following the fleeing of some people after a shot was fired with no known casualty from the gunshot.

This alongside recent happenings has created tension in the Obudu main town with speculations of a war renting the air following an inconclusive emergency peace deal.

According to sources, some members of the two rival groups “KK” Klans confraternity and Baggars confraternity say the terms were ‘unfavorable’ as one group had already ‘drawn blood’.

There are also questions from some corners regarding the willingness and readiness of the Divisional Police Officer, DPO Supol Adigwe Emeka to successfully implement the orders of the Inspector General of Police IGP to flush out cultists in the country.

Despite recent attacks and the manner which known members of cult groups parade themselves after committing several atrocities in the past, arrest were yet to be made or made public by the police division.
