Suspected cultists set building ablaze, kill mother, child in Delta.

Suspected cultists over the weekend reportedly set ablaze a building in Ogwashi-uku, near Asaba, Delta State, killing a woman, her son and left the husband and other members of the family injured.

It was gathered that the woman and her son did not survive even after sympathizers rushed to the scene to put out the fire.

It was gathered that some yet-to-be-identified persons threw what was believed to be petrol through one of the open windows into the victims’ house on Isah Road, and allegedly set the building ablaze.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Andrew Aniamaka, told reporters on Sunday that the incident was reported to be a fire outbreak.

“The husband of the woman and other survivors are receiving treatment at an undisclosed hospital in the community,” Aniamaka added.

The PPRO, however, said the state police command had commenced investigation to unravel the true cause of the fire.
