Four killed, Several Injured In Killing Field Discovered Close To FCT Minister’s Residence

…Victim’s Head Chopped Off, Hung On Tree

Kuchibena is a thriving slum in Life-Camp, a few kilometers from the FCT Minister’s official residence, where violent cult activities have transformed the area into a killing field, making life extremely tough for people.

According to neighbors, several people have perished in the last two months, including four people who were slain in a horrific manner this week by persons suspected of being cults.

The killing of a young guy, whose body was dissected and his head hacked off and hung on a stick by his assailants, seems to have shocked the hamlet.

The infamous slum, which is sandwiched between a slew of privately developed estates, is now claimed to be a staging location for hardened criminals terrorizing the area.

Residents who appear to have accepted their fate amid maddening tension are likewise wary of speaking out for fear of becoming an easy target for the violent cultists and hoodlums who operate as kings of the forest there, despite the fact that they claim to be under the age of 18.

One of the community leaders, who requested anonymity, said the fatal cult clashes had grown far too frequent and lethal, leaving members to live in constant fear and disappointment.

The most difficult period for the people, according to the source, is at night, when criminals have resisted virtually all of the Community’s and select security agencies’ preventive measures.

Meanwhile, 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 read in parts, ” 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
