A native doctor, who sponsors a gang of cultists belonging to the Ake Confraternity, has been reportedly killed by the cultists after a fierce disagreement.
Two others were also killed by stray bullets in the incident which happened in Obiaruku Community of Delta State.
According to Leadership report, the native doctor was responsible for preparing charms for the cultists.
Confirming the incident, the Delta State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Celestina Kalu, said they have arrested some people while also investigating the matter to find out the cause of the killings.

He also disclosed that in the last two weeks, no fewer than six married women and a number of minors have been raped by a gang of rapists who have laid siege in different parts of the state.
Kalu added that the police are committed to stamping out rape and cultism, which have become major crimes in the state.
Cultism has been one of Nigeria’s problems, especially in tertiary institutions. It would be recalled that not long ago, some suspected cultists wrecked havoc in Benue State University.
Also in June, a clash between two rival cults claimed the lives of two people while one other person was abducted in Ijebu Ode area of Ogun State.
