In connection with the deaths of two people in Ubimini Community over the weekend, police detectives assigned to the Egbeda Police Division in Rivers State’s Emohua Local Government Area have detained James, a purported repentant cultist.

James, also known as “Cross and Die,” is accused of orchestrating the crisis that broke out in the Ubimini community during the Presidential and National Assembly elections and resulted in the deaths of Ruth Osage, a pregnant woman, and Mark Orduize, a member of a local vigilante group.

The development was confirmed by Ikechukwu Wordu, the president of the Ubimini Youth Council.

He claimed that James, a cult member who had turned from his ways, had returned to it and had been apprehended as a result of reliable information.

He’s being held at the Egbeda Police Division right now.

Wordu accused James of enlisting and arming young men for criminal activity in the neighborhood, which resulted in an attempt on his life by neighborhood vigilantes and the death of a pregnant woman.
