Again, cult clash claims three in Ogun

By Demilade Michael

Three persons have been reportedly killed in an ongoing cult clash between suspected members of aye and eiye confraternity groups in the Ijoko area of Ogun State.

It was gathered that the clash started last Friday with the killing of a suspected aye leader, simply identified as Adisa.

Adisa was reportedly killed and his right hand chopped off by his assailants.

It was further gathered that members of the aye in a reprisal attack, shot and killed two members of eiye cult group.

It was reliably gathered, that one of those killed in the reprisal attack was beheaded and his head hung on the Ijoko bridge.

“On Friday, Adisa, an aye leader was killed and his hand cut off. But, in retaliation, members of aye returned on Saturday around 6 pm and killed two eiye members in a very brutal manner.

“They allegedly beheaded an eiye member, identified as Seun, a fuel attendant at Taidom filling station in the Alaroro area of Ijoko.

“The attackers specifically targeted Seun, shooting him first and causing everyone nearby to flee. They then finished him off and beheaded him.

“The ayes left only Seun’s head at the scene, taking his body with them. The street of Ijoko was deserted, with residents living in fear”, a source said.

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the command, Omolola Odutola said she was not aware of the incident.

“I don’t have the information, sir. If such happened, the DPO Ijoko Ota would have informed us”, Odutola said.
