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.

Press 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 As stated by our finding was to checkmate activities of the suspected cultists when it was obvious that they were about to strike.
