Three Killed in Ogun State Cult Clash


Report has confirmed that three people lost their lives, in a renewed clash between two rival cult groups in Ijebu-Igbo, Ogun State.


While two of the victims were killed at Ojowo section of Ijebu-Igbo during the attack, one other identified as Mr Owolabi, alias Aburo Obasanjo, was hacked to death at the station garage area of the town around 4 am.

The Police Public Relations Officer of Ogun State, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said three persons were being killed, claiming that  just one person was found dead in a location within the town in the morning with machete cuts.

It would be recalled that the latest killings bring the number of persons killed in Ijebu-Igbo through cult-related violence to nine in the last five weeks. 

In one of such killings, which occurred in the first week of April, four persons, including a Police Inspector, were hacked to death in a clash between a cult group and people suspected to be members of Oodua People’s Congress, OPC.

Already, the Police have arraigned 34 people before an Ijebu-Igbo magistrate’s court in connection with that violent clash in April.
