Abeokuta, Ogun State – A yet-to-be-identified man has been killed in a fresh cult clash in Ogun State, which also left another person hospitalized with a bullet wound.

The incident occurred in the Afobaje area within the Obafemi Owode Local Government Area of the state on Friday, December 15th.

It was gathered that the clash broke out after some armed men suspected to be members of the Eiye confraternity stormed the area, shot the victim in his chest, and inflicted a machete wound on him while one Kazeem Abiola was shot in his abdomen.

According to an eyewitness, the clash was a suspected cult clash between the Eiye and the Alora confraternities.

“The incident happened in the afternoon. What I saw was that some men who were on motorcycles stormed the area and they attacked two persons. There was panic as everyone was running for safety when we heard the gunshots. It was when the police arrived that we saw that two persons were shot. One of the victims was placed on a motorcycle but I doubt if he will survive the attack because he was bleeding profusely.

“It has been a while since we last experienced a cult clash in this area and I think the guys are now back with their attitude. I wonder why someone will indulge in cultism. There are rumours that it was the members of the Eiye and Alora confraternities who were fighting.”
