Update: 8 Feared Dead As Cults Clash Extends To Sagamu, Ogun

The cult killings in Ogun State might have spread from Abeokuta, the State capital, to Sagamu, where no fewer than eight persons were reportedly killed on Monday.

 

Recall that about seven persons were killed in Abeokuta in the past one week as members of Eiye and Aiye confraternities engaged in a supremacy battle.

 

The clash between the rival cult groups got to its peak following the gruesome murder of an area boy popularly known as Tommy in Oluwo, Abeokuta.

 

Since the death of Tommy, residents of Abeokuta have been leaving under fear of possible escalation of the crisis.

 

As of Sunday evening, locals in Panseke, Onikolobo, Oluwo, Adigbe fled for dear lives as gunshots rent the air.

 

Though the police said 18 persons have been arrested, calm seems not to have been restored as the crisis has now escalated to Sagamu, Remo axis of Ogun.
