Nigeria In One Minute

Fear, lamentations as Cross Rivers groan under the weight of cult killings



One of the factors that stand Cross River out among other states is its peaceful atmosphere. It is widely reputed as one of the safest states in the country.Ripples Nigeria, Nigerian Newspapers

But this reputation has come under threat with the growing menace of insecurity in the state, most significant of which is the scourge of clashes between different secret cults, which appears to be getting out of control.

In every two to three months, the clashes rear their ugly heads, leading to many deaths between rival groups while innocent citizens are also caught in the crossfire. The latest clash, which occurred about two weeks ago, claimed about 10 lives.
