Gang Members of the cult group, Vikings, have reportedly killed their Notorious Leader popularly known as Jboy.
The incident happened in Cross River State, South-South Nigeria.
Bittertruth Media gathered that a serious disagreement in the camp of the cult between a top member known as Arikpo 007 and Jboy had earlier resulted in the deaths of several other gang members in months past.
The cult and its gang are said to have been terrorising persons living in Ugep for years.
A resident of the community who narrated the incident said: “It’s an internal crisis within the Vikings also known as Baggers. Few months ago, there was power tussle between Jboy and one Arikpo 007, this led to killing of another gang member.
“A robbery incident that took the life the CEO of House 27 Hotel in Ugep and many other robberies in the community were all linked to the gang.
“It got to a stage when Jboy’s father was dragged out from his house and flogged with machetes by Arikpo’s boys.
“Following the humiliation on his father, Jboy swore never to leave cult violence until he kills Arikpo 007, a threat that kept Arikpo on the run.
“On April 20, 2020, another cult member, also a Viking, was shot dead by aggrieved members of the same cult as a reprisal attack after a meeting around Ijiman Street.
“The situation led to an immediate reprisal by the other faction and it was in the process that Jboy and another gang member named Solo were killed.
“The entire community is in chaos and everyone is afraid of what might happen next.”
Meanwhile, the State Police Command was yet to confirm the incident as at press time.
