At least three persons have been reportedly killed in a fresh 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 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 the Eiye cult group.

Our correspondent gathered that one of those killed in a reprisal attack was beheaded and his head hung on the Ijoko bridge.

A source in the area said, “On Friday, Adisa, the Aye leader was killed and his hand cut off.

“But in retaliation, members of Aye returned yesterday (Saturday) around 6 pm and killed two Eiye members in a very brutal manner.

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

“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 streets of Ijoko are now deserted, with residents living in fear. Increased police presence is urgently needed.”

When contacted, Police Spokesman, Omolola Odutola, said she was not aware of the incident.

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