Police authorities in Anambra State have vowed to arrest suspected cultists who killed a member of a rival group and used his head to play soccer.
The incident happened on premises suspected to be a residence of students of Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University in Igbariam.
The video which circulated on social media showed a dreadlock-carry young man, who was dragged out of his car and shot at close range.
His head was later brought to a square, where the assailants used it to play soccer.
In his reaction, the state police commissioner, CP Tony Olofu, who spoke through the command’s spokesperson, DSP Toochukwu Ikenga, said the command was working hard to track down the culprits.
Ikenga said: “The Commissioner of Police, Anambra State Command, CP Tony Olofu, has ordered an investigation on the shooting incident on 25/9/2021 by 4 pm along Igbariam road.
“Preliminary investigation reveals that the shooting was as a result of the rival cult clash. Meanwhile, Police Operatives have intensified patrol and surveillance within the area. Further details shall be communicated,” he said.
