On Wednesday, 3 persons were killed in different parts of Benin City, Edo State, in the ongoing cult war that started on Christmas Day. One of the victims identified as Godspower was killed at about 4:00 a.m. in front of his residence along Second East Circular road.
Late Godspower was scheduled to travel out of the country on Saturday. His bereaved mother sat on a walkway and wept profusely. She placed curses on her son’s killers before policemen came to take the body away. Witnesses said they heard Godspower begging for his life before he was shot.
