It was a weekend of horror in Anambra State as three persons were burnt to death in Nnobi, Idemili South Council Area of the state by unidentified persons, where three others were decapitated following a suspected rival cult attack in Otoko area of Awkuzu, Oyi Local Government Area.

According to a source who spoke with News Express, the Nnobi incident took place around 5:45 p.m. on Sunday at Afor Nnobi.

The situation, the source further said, has created tension in and around the area.

In the Awkuzu incident, a video made available to News Express showed three men lying in the pool of their own blood near New Jerusalem Lodge.

While one was pursued into the bush where he was shot on his cheek and hand, the second one whose body was lying on a refuse dump area, had his head and neck cut off.

The video further showed some people whose hands were only shown, mocking one of the victim’s head and the cowry he wore on his dread. The voice behind the camera said: “Abi, you don’t hear? Act now, let’s see” and knocked his head severally.

According to the narrator the gunmen trailed the victims to Awkuzu, where they went on visitation from Awka.

The police was yet to comment on the incidents as at the time of filing this report.
