Among the dead is one Pastor Sam.

Addressing reporters on the development, the Otukpo Divisional Police Officer, Obo Ukam Obo, said the police were aware of the meeting scheduled for Double K Resort and were shocked that members a the same political party could disagree to the extent of killing.

Obo said the Division had commenced investigation and that those found wanting would be apprehended and prosecuted.
