A suspected cultist, simply identified as Ita, has been arrested by the Cross River State Police Command for allegedly killing 14-year-old David Okon, who refused to join their cult.
It was gathered that Ita had attempted to lure the innocent school boy into ‘Skylo”, a cult group at T junction, Ikot Ekpo, 8 Miles Calabar.
It was however gathered that Okon resisted him, a reason Ita eventually killed him.
While confirming the report, the state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Henry Fadairo, said “Skylo” had put pressure on the deceased for several months to join them but he refused. Ita and his cultist group on February 4, 2015 allegedly chased the deceased on that night and stabbed him to death.
