The mode of operation of the assailant was said to be similar to that of the attack that led to the recent killing and beheading of Franklin Obi, the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Ward 4 in Omoku, Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni Local Government Area and two members of his family.

Though no reason has been given for the attack, it was gathered that invasion of the community could be a reprisal by a cult group.
