Suspected Cultists Hack Down Banker In Edo


A member staff of a new generation bank in Benin City, Edo State, identified as Nosa, has been shot dead by gunmen suspected to be cultists.

The incident occurred on Thursday, June 20, 2024, in the Government Reservation Area of Benin City, the state capital.

Sunday Telegraph gathered that the deceased while at work, received a call while in office from a yet-to-be-identified person inviting him to hang out at a joint after the close of work.

The deceased who did not suspect any foul play, decided to join his callers at the close of work at their usual joint.

While on his way to the place, his assailants who apparently have been trailing him, were said to have blocked his vehicle with their car and immediately opened fire on them.

The deceased was said to have been rushed to the hospital where he was confirmed dead.

The State Police Command Spokesman, SP Chidi Nwabuzor, who confirmed the incident, described it as very unfortunate.

“Yes, the command confirmed it, it is an unfortunate incident. As I speak, the matter is under investigation.

“Further information as we progressed in the investigation would be made public by the police. The perpetrators would be brought to book,” he said
