The Egbema clan, an oil producing community in Ohaji/Egbema Local Government
Area of Imo State, was at the weekend engulfed in a crisis.

Not fewer than six people were feared killed.

The clash, according to an eyewitness, was between two rival cult groups
known as Degbam and Dewell, which had been terrorising the  community for
years over who should be in charge of the royalties accruing  from the oil
companies.

The source said fight started at 6am on Sunday

when a faction of the group invaded Obiakpu community with weapons, shooting
for hours.

Among those feared killed was a chief, Emmanuel Opara aka Akurulo of Egbema
and another man and his son, who were killed at Mmahu community.

Six suspects were arrested.

Police spokesman Andrew Enwerem confirmed the incident, saying six suspects
were arrested.

He said one of the suspects, who was arrested with bullet wounds, died
later, while the remaining five are in their custody.

Enwerem said investigation is ongoing.
