A social media user, Ezebunwo Ichemati, who shared the story online narrated the ugly incident, wrote

“Another promising innocent life has been cut short this morning the 15th day of May 2020, in a mistaken identity hit that occurred this morning in the mile3 axis of Diobu in Port Harcourt.

“What started about 5weeks ago as a minor battle for who takes matching ground rites from traders has gradually grown into a full-blown cult war amongst two major cult groups in the heart of Mile3 Diobu, with both sides counting human loss.

“The Rivers State police command especially the Mile3 divisional police station, cannot feign ignorance to the cult-related killings numbering about 4 and the recent killing of this innocent young man named Leonard Chika making it a total of 5 people murdered in cold blood in the streets of Mile3 Diobu.

“The deliberate silence and inactions of the Rivers State police command have emboldened these daredevils that outside attacking their rivals, they also go in a looting spree and carry out the destruction of people’s properties when on any mission.

“Leo was a friend and a very hardworking young man who doesn’t mind doing anything to earn a living no matter how belittling as long as it is legal. Today in the presence of his girlfriend those who cannot give life shot and killed him in cold blood.”
