A source in Eket, who pleaded anonymity, told NAN on Wednesday that the incident occurred on June 21 at a popularly area called Idung Afianwe in Eket.

The source, who claims to be a member of one of the cult groups said: “the fracas started on Monday, June 21 and we lost a vibrant young man.
“We all know the club house at Afaha Uqua, where they sell all sorts of hard and contraband drugs and where those loose girls hang around.
“I have not received any report on the incident. However, we shall investigate and get back to you.
“We will get the needed contacts, but I can’t talk now,’’ Macdon said. (NAN)
