It was when I heard the second time that I knew something was wrong.

“A few minutes later, I heard people running and screaming and by this time the gunshots were everywhere, there was sporadic shooting.

“Since yesterday this area has been under serious security threat, we couldn’t sleep last night. Three persons including one of our neighbours have been killed”.

Another witness, who runs a barbing saloon along, Urua Ekpa road, Ita Idung, who identified himself as Akpan said “There was a big problem here in this village; there were some guys who were giving us a big problem here yesterday. They continued this morning and I can confirm to you that two persons have died in our street.

“I was preparing to come to my barbing saloon this morning, when a group of guys started chasing our neigbour from here, they later caught up with him down the street, where they mercilessly murdered him”.

It was gathered that many people lost their phones, hand bags, jewelries, cash and other valuables in the process of running for their lives.

However, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, MacDon Ogbeche, who confirmed the incident said, “The Akwa Ibom Police Command received a distress call about a clash between two rival cult groups around Urua Ekpa area. The Commissioner of Police ordered immediate deployments. Two persons have been arrested, no life confirmed loss. Investigation is ongoing but normalcy has been restored.
