Seven persons allegedly kill in Cross River, property worth millions of Naira destroyed

Wada vs Bello: One killed, two injured as thugs ambush Kogi PDP governorship candidate’s convoy
Seven persons have been allegedly killed in a renewed cult war in the once peaceful Okundi village in Boki Local Government Area in the Central Senatorial District of Cross River State.

Dove Bulletin gathered that the twelve villages that make up the Old Osokom Clan in Boki Local Government Area had held a meeting seeking ways to eradicate cult activities in the community.

The meeting according to our finding was to checkmate activities of the suspected cultists when it was obvious that they were about to strike.

But information filtered to the cult groups that the community was plotting to counter their activities, hence they decided to strike first, our source who pleaded anonymity said.

“The suspected cultists allegedly camped in the Apostolic Church in Okundi, close to Boki Boys’ Secondary School and at night, struck, killing their first victim, Joseph Bukie Bankong.

Late Bankong, according to our source, vehemently condemned the activity of suspected cultists in the community. Joseph Bukie Bankong was killed on Monday while others were killed on Tuesday.

Our source further said that the entire community then rose to attack all alleged cult members killing one Alphonsus Etta Ewung, Otu Agbor Edum and Chief Paulinus Otu’s son amongst others.

Several houses and property worth millions of naira have been destroyed between Monday and Tuesday when the trouble started.

In a telephone conversation, the state police commissioner, Austine Agbonlahor confirmed to newsmen the cult war. However, he said that the police have been mobilized to the area to maintain peace.

Two ways Manchester United could line up with Donny Van de Beek transfer

Manchester United have emerged as frontrunners in the race to sign Ajax midfielder Donny Van de Beek.

The Guardian report that United are hopeful of signing the Dutch star who has attracted interest from several other elite clubs.

Van de Beek, 23, starred in the Ajax team that reached the Champions League semi-finals in the 2018/19 season and is one of Europe’s most talented young midfielders.

We looked at two ways United could line-up next season if they complete the signing of the versatile Dutchman.

This system would allow Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to accommodate each of his most potent attacking threats.

While Van de Beek is most effective in a box-to-box role, he has experience shielding the back four and could provide the platform for Paul Pogba to roam in a double midfield pivot.

Van de Beek made six appearances in the defensive midfield role for Ajax in the 2019/20 season and has the ability to operate as Solskjaer’s anchorman ahead of Nemanja Matic.

However, Matic offers a more experi…

BBNaija 2020: I will find you a Bayelsa wife, someone like me – Nengi tells Ozo

Big Brother Naija housemate, Nengi, on Sunday said she will find Ozo a Bayelsa wife.

Nengi said this when Ozo said he wanted to take her on a trip after the reality show.

Ozo, however, said he was not interested in another Bayelsa wife.

“I will find you a wife when we leave this place. I will find you someone like me from Bayelsa,” Nengi told Ozo.

But Ozo responded, “if I wanted someone else, I would have chosen.”

Nengi further stated that, “When we leave the house there will be a lot of girls interested in you and you won’t have my time.”

Agreeing that it was a possibility, Ozo insisted he had found something special in her.

Nengi had warned Ozo against mistaking their friendship for a love relationship.

She had maintained that she would not date anyone in the house but Ozo is still trying and working hard to see if she could change her mind.

De Gea hailed by Henderson but warns him for No. 1 spot battle

Dean Henderson has cautioned David de Gea he is aiming for his Manchester United place. The 23-year-old goalkeeper will retreat to Old Trafford after an exceptional loan spell at Sheffield United, determined to take the 1st spot off the Spaniard.

Academy alumnus Henderson recently signed a new six-year contract last month among connections to Chelsea. Thus, making it obvious he sees himself at Old Trafford for the long term.

“I’ll be moving back in the first day of pre-season and sweating my b******s off to get in that starting line-up because it’s something I’ve constantly required and I’m so close now. I have tremendous respect for David. He has been a magnificent goalkeeper for many years.

He’s been remarkable and that’s something I strive to be, to have a profession like his at the club. It’s down to me but I’m beneath no fantasies that I’m going to develop just sat on the bench. I need that game-time.” said Henderson.

Unfortunately, De Gea’s form has come into inquest over the last …
