Panic As Suspected Cultists Kill One In Ogun 

The residents of the Ijeun Titun area of Abeokuta South Local Government Area of Ogun State have been thrown into a state of panic as suspected cultists killed one in the area, News About Nigeria reports.

This was disclosed by a source who pleaded anonymity, stating that the death was a result of a suspected cult clash.

The source noted that the incident, which led to the death of a man identified as Tescom, happened around 8 pm on Sunday.

The source recounted how the deceased was sitting in front of a car wash in the area when some gun-wielding men attacked and shot at him, leading to his death.

The source further stated that it seemed as though the suspects came for just the deceased, as they just went up to the deceased and shot him in the head.

The residents, however, expressed fear that the cult group of the deceased might come back for revenge.

“We heard that the assailant came on a motorcycle, and they just went after only him and shot him in the head.

“Although those who shot him dead bolted away immediately, people were afraid that the deceased’s group members might come for a reprisal attack.

“The police from Ibara Divisional headquarters came at about 9 pm to evacuate his corpse. It is really disturbing and said,” the source stated.

The State Police Public Relations Officer, Omolola Odutola, confirmed the incident but dismissed the claim that it was a cult clash.

Odutola stated that it was a suspected murder case that led to the death of one Olumide Danisa, also known as Tescom.

“It was gathered that the deceased was shot in the head by two gunmen who alighted from an unregistered Toyota Corolla vehicle, ash colour, and released shots while Olumide was sitting outside his house at about 19:55hrs of 31/3/24, and fled the scene.

“The victim was rushed to the State Hospital Ijaiye, where the doctor confirmed him dead. His remains have been evacuated to the hospital morgue for autopsy.

She noted that although no arrests have been made, a preliminary investigation into the incident has commenced.
