A resident, who spoke to our correspondent, said the Aiye leader, Emeka Ihuoma and the herbalist identified as Adio were picked up on Monday night when the clashes resumed.
“ There had been serious figuring between rival cult groups in Ilasa. Some of the cultists were arrested over the weekend and two major persons on Monday.
“The leader was found with two guns and ammunition. He had some charms too. The herbalist was the one who prepared charms for them.
“Policemen have taken over Ilasa to prevent another attack. We have had some sort of peace. Community leaders even went to thank the DPO because the area has been hot since last week.”
