There was pandemonium in Kong community, Khana Local Government Area of Rivers State, Sunday night, when unknown gunmen killed two persons before cutting off their heads.
The daredevil assailants, suspected to be cult members, had shot into the air intermittently, ostensibly to scare people away in what was reportedly a raid on the stronghold of a rival cult group.
Eyewitnesses say the entire Ogoni community had been thrown into chaos, with some residents fleeing into a nearby bush during the attack that occurred at about 11.30pm.
Punch reports that the armed cultists took the heads of their victims with them.
Reacting to the development, the Caretaker Committee Chairman of Khana LGA, Mr. Baridam Suani, cautioned that his government would no longer tolerate wanton destruction of lives and property in the area.
