The notorious cultists who were killed in the clash which lasted for over two hours, were reportedly in the community for a meeting and attacked and killed a commercial motorbike operator, whose motorbike they attempted to snatch.

An eyewitness who confirmed the incident said;

“The group had come to Lessel town in their numbers on Saturday night for what we gathered was their annual convention. “They ran into the okadaman, who they engaged to convey some of them to a guest house in Lessel, venue of the meeting where some of them also put up.

“On completing the assignment of conveying them to their destination, the cult members demanded the key of the motorbike, but the rider refused to surrender his bike to them. “They descended on him and killed him instantly. But the news of the murder filtered into town and the youths in Lessel mobilised and stormed the guest house with dangerous weapons.

“A bloody fight ensued, some of the cult members were hacked to death, while others captured alive led the youths to where other members of the cult were hiding.

“They were all rounded up by the youths. It took the intervention of the Police, who stormed the area, to stop the killing of more cultists, most of whom had been beaten to a pulp by the youths.”

Benue State Police Commissioner, Mr. Ene Okoh who confirmed the clash, said the command had reinforced security in the town, attributed the bloody clash to a cult fight.

“When we got the information, my men moved in quickly and arrested 13 persons, who were involved in the fracas, but I can confirm that nine persons were killed in the clash” he said.

  1. He that kill by the kneif must be killed by the same, yes this is good revenge, may their soul burn in hell

  2. THE POLICE ARRESTED NINE PEOPLE .WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE.THE CULTISTS OR THE YOUTHS?.

    ALL IDENTIFIED YOUTHS SHOULD BE RELEASED IMMEDIATELY.

    IF THESE NINE ARE CULTISTS ,WELL THE POLICE SHOULD KILL THEM .THEY ARE NOT FIT TO LIVE.THEY TOOK A LIFE,SO THEIR LIFE MUST BE TAKEN.PLEASE DO NOT SPARE THEM.THEY ARE THE MAGGOTS OF THE SOCIETY.

    ONCE AGAIN, RELEASE ALL THE YOUTHS UNCONDITIONALLY AND WITHOUT A BAIL BOND ON THEM. AND ALLOW THEM TO GO HOME.THEY ARE THE HEROES AND DID NO EVIL.

  3. Cultists usually think they’re above everyone else and so get everything they want by intimidation. To murder an innocent man who refused to let you steal from him is very wicked. May his soul rest in peace. I’m not a fan of jungle justice but he who lives by the sword dies by the sword.

  4. That was mad. Nigeria is slowly turning into a lawless country where the citizens can do justice on their own

  5. This is bad,the act of cultism is now rampant.for the nine people police arrested there should be proper investigation on it so that innocent people will not be punished

  6. Taking law into our hands which means jungle justice at times is necessary for our foremost safety because the police cannot be trusted or left with such matters.

  7. Very very good….maybe this will teach some of them a lesson to stop bullying and intimidating ppl….rip to the okada man

  8. Nigeria is fast becoming a lawless country where ppl just do whatever .Imagine killing ppl as if we ‘re in a banana republic?

  9. The avenge for the death of there member,i think is good,moreover the cultist is a threat to the society.Because he that kills by the knife should also be killed the same.

  10. What do one gain for being a cultists, I didn’t see any benefit joining the group, they are always in fear,may the man soul rest in peace

  11. God will save us ooh but those people joining cult what have they seen in it don’t they know that it is nt gud just like this ones now they just wasted their life rest in peace

  12. I like that…immediate punishment for their sins..I support the youth for taking laws into their hands to bring justice for the deceased

  13. It is not right to take laws into your hands but the youths did right, they fought for the man who was unjustly kiiled

  14. Whem will our youths see Culticism as a great thread to human kind?…I mean you are just destroying the lives of your fellow human all for what you can get with your daily earns…..now is has also leads to their own life be claimed…I sorry for their family that just lost them as flies.

  15. In this our beautiful country nigeria, killing is no more seen as anything again, oh God help your children. Help this nigerians

  16. Jungle justice is bad, mistake can be made. Paying evil for evil is ungodly. However, killing over minor things is bad and ccultistis evil s well.

  17. People kill as if they are animals,that’s too bad,every one should try to avoid problems ,,,God pls help us

  18. The met their Waterloo… kudos to the youths who took action in time and this shows that community policing is the best.

  19. I don’t know the benefit of being a cultist, may God help us, the shedding of blood in Nigeria may God put end to it

  20. Cultism is not encouraged in our society and so therefore I love what the okada people did, they have really avenged the death of their follow member

  21. Killing of humans is no longer regarded as anything. Jungle justice everywhere. People have taken laws into their hands because nobody feels the protection of the appropriate authorities anymore

  22. Good, that serves them right, he that lives by the sword shall die by the sword, wicked people, it has now back fired on them

  23. The youth should have not take laws to their hands, they should have made them surrender and hand them over to the police

  24. And people will not learn their lesson. They prefer to die like fowl rather dan abide with d law. Say no to cultism

  25. Well, that was a good job, if am to say, because these people who are cultist are very dangerous and wicked.

  26. Kudos for the youth for job weldone. This is what is expected to do when cultist are caught,kill them not giving them out to the police.

  27. This is what happens when people are pushed to the wall…..not justifying the killings….but these people that parade themselves and try to instigate terror on people around them will have it coming like this sooner than later like this.

  28. Benue state has indirectly been converted to a theatre of blood shedding. The cultists if well examined might be herdsmen…. Thank God they met their Waterloo.

  29. If the police have arrested any youth they should release them for the did well in getting rid of cultists out of the society.

  30. What you sow is what you reap. That was their pay for the act of murder of the bike man they committed. Say NO to cultism and all other social vices.

  31. People who allowed devil to use them as an instrument instead of a child to useful to his or her family they choose to destroy their lives with their own hands.

  32. If you know what this so called cult boys are doing, sincerely you won’t be sorry for them. They deserve it I would say

  33. This is how cultism waste lives and destinies. Going from one community to another to cause trouble. It’s good as they avenge the death of their members.

  34. There’s one thing I’m very sure of and that is you people not making heaven, you’ll not go unpunished I swear.

  35. Cultism is taken over in the country gradually,,, all the bad news is just showing up, day by day, God safe Nigeria

  36. This revenge is so good I so much love it, that’s how they will be bribingi them down one after the other say no to cultism
