Residents flee as armed men invade Ogun community kill one, rob others

 

There was pandemonium in Ogun State as armed men suspected to be cultists unleashed terror on the people of Ifo town in the early hours of Sunday.

KHORGIST gathered that the suspected cultists were said to have invaded the town, causing serious tension as residents and commuters fled for dear lives.
A 25-year-old man was reportedly hacked to death while many were robbed of their valuables.

However, men of the Ogun State Police Command said they have apprehended five members of the dreaded cult group.

The arrested suspects were identified by the Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, as Afeez Olapade (aka Sabiko), 22; Idowu Adebayo, 18; Oduwaye Seyi (aka owo aje) 22; Fatai Olude, 22 and Alabi Segun, 22.
Oyeyemi confirmed to DAILY POST that the suspected cultists were apprehended following a distress call received by the DPO of Ifo division, who was told that the group was on a rampage around Ifo market.

They were said to have attacked people with dangerous weapons, “while also dispossessing innocent people of their belongings” along the Lagos-Abeokuta road.

KHORGIST learned that the DPO of Ifo division, CSP Adeniyi Adekunle, upon the distress call, quickly mobilized his men to the scene.

“On getting there, they met a 25-year-old man, who was later identified simply as Sunday, in the pool of his own blood as a result of several matchet injuries on his body,” Oyeyemi said.
