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.
The source said the gunmen had stormed the scene of the incident with a vehicle and went directly for their target.
The victim was said to have died on the spot.
Another resident of the area confirmed the incident, adding that the attackers fled the scene after killing the deceased.
Efforts to speak with the Delta State Police Commissioner, Mr Adeyinka Adeleke, on the killing proved abortive as he could not been reached on phone.
