14-Year Old Boy Killed In Cross Rivers State For Refusing To Join Cult

A 14-year old boy, David Okon has been killed by a group of cultists in Cross Rivers State for refusing to join them.

According to report, a member of the cult group, Ita had attempted to lure the innocent school boy into the ‘Skylo” cult group at T junction, Ikot Ekpo, 8 Miles Calabar. However, Okon resisted him, an action which led to his killing.

The state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Henry Fadairo, who spoke to the Sun on the incident, described it as terrible. He said the “Skylo” cult group had mounted pressure on the deceased for several months to join them but he refused. Ita and his cultist group on February 4, 2015 allegedly chased the deceased on that night and stabbed him to death.

In a related development, police in the state have also arrested members of another cult group, the “Columbo boys,” for various crimes including armed robbery and terrorising people of the Calabar metropolis.

The Assistant Commissioner of Police, State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), Mr. Ganiyu Salami, said “Skylo” and “Columbo boys” were strong cultist groups terrorizing residents of Calabar before they were unmasked.
Other suspected cultists in custody, according to the police include, Okon, 15-years old, Effiong, 18-years Etim, 18-years and Ekpo 15-years old.

Ita spoke to the Sun on how he and his group operate: “I am a member of “Skylo” group. We used to terrorize Calabar residents.

“When Okon was called to join the “Skylo” group, we started putting pressure on him to join. When he was adamant by refusing to join us, we have to murder him by stabbing him at the back,” he confessed.

While Okon, another suspect said, “We are members of “Columbo boys, apart from cultism, we robbed innocent people. We used to initiate our peer group to join our members. We have robbed several and initiated people as members.”

CP Fadairo said the suspects would soon be charged to court.
