6 Dead in Secret Cult War Between ‘Aiye’ and ‘Black Axe’ in Benin-City; Linked To Politics ‘Booty’

July 30th, 2012

Aiye Confraternity and Black Axe members are said to be at war.

Four persons in the last two days were reportedly killed at different locations in Benin City, the Edo State capital following a renewed cult war between Aiye confraternity and Black Axe.

The latest was the murder of a middle-aged man at a beer parlor along Zabayor Street in Benin at about 10: 30 pm Tuesday night. Sources have, however, attributed the renewed gang war in the state to fallout occasioned by the ‘sharing formula’ of largesse from politicians in the just concluded governorship election in the state.
