Police Nab Cultists Who Beheaded And Played Soccer With Head Of Rival Cultist
Anambra State police reportedly arrested two suspected cultists who were involved in the killing of a rival cultist, beheading him, and playing soccer with his head last year.
Last September, a video went viral showing some young men suspected of being cultists dragging out another young man suspected of being a member of a rival cult group, gunning him down in cold blood, and beheading him.
Another segment of the video showed the young men making fun of the beheaded rival cultist’s dreadlocks while playing soccer with his head.
According to sources, the incident occurred in Igbariam, Anambra East Local Government Area, the same community that houses the State-owned university, Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University (COOU), and the head was taken to Awka, the state capital, where it was used for play.
In a viral video, two young cultists, Chisom Okafor and Ikechukwu Chinweze, aged 23 and 19, who were being questioned by men they suspected to be police officers, admitted to being members of the Ayes cult and participating in several killings.
Chisom Okafor, 23, was seen in the video confessing, “I’m also known as Stamina.” My mother is from Awka, but I was born in Igboukwu. My age is 23 years. I’m a member of the Ayes cult and have only killed three people before.”
He named two of the three people he killed. Edu Obara and Savage are among them. Both are suspected cultists who were murdered and beheaded in 2021. While Edu Obara was murdered in Igbariam, Savage was murdered and beheaded in Oko, Orumba North Local Government Area, and his trunk was transported to Awka.
“I was among the cultists who went to Obj’s place (just a nickname) and killed some security men,” he continued in his confession. We were seven people who went through the operation. I dropped out of school, but I’m a tiler and I’m very good at it.”
Okafor also mentioned in the video the names of the seven members of their cult who took part in the operation against security guards.
“I’m Ikechukwu Chinweze, I’m 19 years old, from Umuzocha in Awka,” said another cultist interviewed in the video. I’m a high school dropout who was learning phone repair before meeting Chisom here in Ifite.”
Meanwhile, some Anambra State residents claim that the man killed last year, Savage, was the same person whose head was used to play soccer, implying that the now-arrested cultists were responsible for the act.
Iyke Orji, an Anambra indigene said: “Some group of boys have been caught and at state CID Awka now.
“They confessed that they’re the boys that were playing ball with human skull some time ago that went viral on social media,
“They confessed that they were the boys that attacked and killed security men at Miracle Junction Awka.
“They confessed that they killed someone (Savage) at Oko, took the body from Oko to Awka and decapitated the body at Amaenyi Awka.
“One of them is 19. None is above 25.”
