Four persons have been allegedly killed at Kuchibena, where  deadly cult activities have turned into a killing field, making life very miserable for residents.

Kuchibena is a slum just few kilometres away from the Life -Camp official residence of the FCT Minister.
People in the area live in perpetual fear because of the untoward activities of cultists and hoodlums. 
In the past two months, terrified residents said several persons have died,  in a most gruesome manner by people suspected to be cultists. 

The last killing that reportedly shook the village was a young man, whose body was said to have been dismembered, with his head chopped off and hung on a stick by his attackers.

The notorious slum already sandwiched by several privately developed estates, is reportedly now, an operational theatre for hardened criminals who terrorize the neighhood. 

The residents who appear to have resigned to fate amidst frustrating tension, are also afraid to speak out, for fear of becoming an easy target to the blood-thirsty cultists and hoodlums, who are said to be under-aged, but operate as lords of the jungle there.

One of the community leaders who pleaded anonymity, said that the bloody cult clashes have become too frequent and deadly, making people to live on a daily basis with clouds of uncertainty and disillusionment. 

According to the source, the night hours are the worst period for the people, as the criminals have defied almost all the security measures put in place by the Community and some security agencies. 

While the FCT Police Command Public Relations Officer, Josephine Adeh has not reacted to inquiry regarding the incessant killings in Kuchibena, a letter addressed to Abuja Environmental Protection Board, requesting for demolition of the criminal hideouts in the community confirmed the lawless situation there.

The letter dated April 28th, 2021 and signed by the Galadima Divisional Police Officer, CSP Chinyere Akalaga, complained that the activities of the hoodlums had destroyed peace and order in village and the surrounding neighbourhood. 

The Police specifically requested for ” dislodgement of illegal structures, settlements imposing security threat within Galadima area “

The letter reads, ” consequent upon Intelligence report received from the Commissioner of Police, FCT Command, Abuja from the Department of State Security Services and 21st April 2021 pointing Sahara Gate Market, Mab-Global Junction, Efab Queen
opposite market, Cashew Garden along Kuchibena and the popular Mami market in the same Kuchibena area among other major black spots in Galadima srca in the FCT Command. 

”  It has become even more expedient that a drastic action be taken by your agency in order to curb the excesses of hoodlums and miscreants that have over time terrorize the peace in and around the neighborhood.

“In view of the above stated facts, it may therefore please your authority in the interest of sanity to consider the following as measures for lasting solution: to include: Outright removal,  demolition of illegal structures within the area under review. Liaise with the police on a joint assignment in a bid to dislodge them from their hide-outs” .
