A notorious cult leader in the Owube Kingdom, Ahoada West Local Government Area of Rivers State, Izuma David Odiereke aka Solition, was killed in a gun battle with the police in a forest in the area around 4am on Monday.

Briefing newsmen at Ahoada Police Division where the body of the cult leader was brought, Rivers State Commissioner of Police, Olatunji Disu, said Odiereke had been on the wanted list since 2016 and was notorious for his criminal activities, including being a serial killer.
