Multiple reports claimed that Lucky was gruesomely murdered by a rival cult group in the community.

The cult kingpin’s death led to the closure of most businesses, especially drinking bars, games and shops, as many people feared reprisal attacks.

A youth leader in Ogwashi-Uku, who spoke on the ground of anonymity, said the killing of Lucky, described as a “7 star general” in the Vikings Confraternity, was what raised tension in the community.

He said, “Lucky is a well-known figure and a feared leader of his confraternity. In short, he is referred to as a 7-star general.

“He was killed last Thursday and as I speak, there is tension in the community. Many residents are now living in fear.

“No doubt, there may likely be a reprisal. That is why you see uneasy calm in the community.”

Confirming the incident, Delta Police Public Relations (PPRO), DSP Bright Edafe said the state command was on top of the situation to ensure peace and security in the area.

What happened in Ogwashi-Uku is a one-day incident, one person was shot and killed and three other persons received gunshot injuries.

“As I speak with you now, we have some suspects in custody over the shooting. I can tell you that the police are working to maintain peace and security in Ogwashi-Uku.

“After the incident, we carried out raids in the community, and arrested some suspects who are currently undergoing interrogation,” Edafe stated.

Lucky’s death followed the killing of a student last week at the polytechnic community which forced the students to go on a one-week semester break.
