A Non-Novernmental Organization on the platform of Legends Anti-Violence Foundation, has put the casualty figure of cult related killings in some parts of Edo State at 200 while thousands of persons on the edge of the calamity, had fled their homes over fear of appraisal attacks.

Director General of the group, Kadiri Christopher stated this during the foundation’s peaceful rally against cult killings yesterday in Benin City, the State Capital.

The group carried placards with inscriptions such as:  “No more killings, No more brutality, No more revenge/retaliation, Shun cultism, it is evil”.

According to Kadiri, the State has lost no fewer than 200 persons to cult related clashes since December 2018.

He said the group cannot afford to fold its arm and watch innocent souls being killed on daily basis “particularly in Upper Sakpoba, Ogida, and Ebvuomore parts of Benin City”.

Kadiri, called on youths to sheathe their swords, embrace peace and channel their energy unto meaningful and productive ventures.

Also, founder, Crusader Against Campus Cultism and Violence Foundation, Samson Briamah, said the group is readily available to offer assistance to cult members who are willing to trend the path of peace.

    Why is it difficult for government to assist such group? Such a group needs government support, our Edo govt is pretending as if they didn’t see this effort by an NGO. Ride on guys, God will surely see you through.
