A yet-to-be identified young man has been reportedly shot dead by unknown gunmen around the Ugbuwangue area of Warri in Warri South Local Government Area of Delta State.

The incident which occurred on Monday led to pandemonium in the area for several hours.

Sources told NIGER DELTA TODAY that the killing was not unconnected with the recent cult related clashes in the oil-city.

It was learnt that the attack was a spillover of the clash between two suspected rival cult groups which had led to the killing of three persons including a couple around the Iyara area of the city.
