Man kills cultist for inviting him to join dreaded Baga Confraternity

A man, Izuchukwu Ifeacho, has confessed to stabbing to death one Iruchukwu Nnebe for allegedly pressuring him to join the dreaded Baga Confraternity in Enugu State.

The Enugu State Police Command’s Public Relations Officer, Ebere Amaraizu, in a statement, said that Ifeacho, a native of Amankpunato in the Oji-River Local Government Area of the state, killed the deceased, a native of the same community, on Friday, May 31, 2019, in self-defence.

Amaraizu said the deceased, a member of the Baga Confraternity, was reported to have been disturbing the suspect to join his group, but Ifeacho allegedly refused and avoided him.

However, on Friday, May 31, the deceased and other members of his group reportedly trailed the suspect to a shop where he had gone to eat in the night at Amankpunato and told him,

“Today, Korofo will suck blood since he does not want to join them.”

Amaraizu quoted the suspect to have told the police that after the deceased and his group members started beating him, he escaped from them, picked up a kitchen knife and returned to the scene and stabbed Nnebe.
