LAGOS NOVEMBER 5TH (URHOBOTODAY)-Mother, son of Festus Wilfred suspected killer of factional vigilante leader of Evwreni Community were killed recently in an action suspected to be reprisal attack.

Community source informed Urhobotoday that two factions of vigilante groups in Evwreni community of Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta  state have been having running battles  among themselves, adding that in course of one of the misunderstanding,   Festus Wilfred allegedly pulled out a gun and shot dead  the leader of the other faction.

“After killing him, he fled from the community. Those loyal to the murdered factional vigilante leader stormed Festus’s house but he had escaped from home. The aggrieved loyalists therefore killed his mother and one his twin son.
