NIGERIA – Reports indicate that angry youths have reportedly burnt a market while protesting the mysterious death of about 34 persons.
According to local media in Nigeria, the protesting angry youths burnt the market after four of them died on Tuesday.
They were said to have also tried to raze the monarchâ€™s palace, but were stopped by a team of soldiers and policemen.
It was gathered that 34 persons have died mysteriously in the last three weeks.
A resident, Roland Chuks Agbontai, who lost his 22-year-old son, is convinced that the strange deaths have not abated because the communal deities, Agba-Egbo and Akpu, have not been properly appeased.
He said after the youths consulted the oracle, they were told to appease both deities. But while Agba-Egbo was appeased, Akpuâ€™s shrine was left desolate after a church uprooted the deity.
