Vanguard reliably gathered that the clash was between members of Aro-Baggers and Mafaite confraternities.

The clash has further heightened tension in Ughelli and environs, which has recorded an upsurge in crime sequel a Monday clash between Ekuigbo and Otor-Iwherko communities both of which are a walking distance to the scene of the Tuesday’s clash.

Debunking any correlation with the communal clash, a security source at the Ughelli Police Area Command, described the incident as a “one-off case of cult-related activity.”

The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said: “The person killed is a member of the Aro-Bagger cult group and he was shot dead by the Mafiate gang.

“We are certain that the Aro-Bagger gang would go out to avenge the killing, we are on the trail of anyone involved in the incident.”
