Four killed as cultists clash in Ondo

Four people  reportedly lost their lives while several others  were injured during a rival cult group clash in Ondo town, Ondo State on Sunday night.

It was gathered that the clash was a reprisal by a rival cult group in the town as the group had lost four members during a clash on Friday.

An eyewitness told our correspondent that the clash was between Afee Cult and the Eiye confraternity groups.

A source in the town narrated that the four cultists killed on Friday were members of the Afee cult group.

“The Afee cult members regrouped on Sunday night and attacked the Eiye confraternity group. “The cultists threw the community into serious confusion as they moved from one street to the other in search of members of the Eiye confraternity group. In the process, they killed four members of the Eiye confraternity group,” the source said.

The source added that there were sporadic gunshots in  Yaba, Odojomu, Enuowa, Idi Ishin and Surulere areas of the town.

The Public Relations Officer of the Ondo State Police Command, Mr. Femi Joseph, who confirmed the incident, said 10 persons had been arrested in connection with the incident.

The PPRO said none of his men were among the victims of the clash. He stated that the command had commenced investigation into the killings.

“It was a clear cult clash and we have started investigation into the incident but normalcy has returned to the town while our men have been deployed in strategic places within the town, “ Joseph said.

The Niger Delta As A Microcosm Of Nigeria | Eugene Abels | TEDxPortHarcourt

Despite being abundant in human and natural resources, violence and decline in development prevail in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. In this talk, Eugene Abels invites us to stop pointing fingers at governments, unite and reflect on our history and also, to change our thought patterns, attitudes and habits in order to create the community/nation we want.

A deliberate Change Agent and technocrat committed to international best practices who has in three decades traversed the Real, Banking and Public Sectors of the Nigerian Economy, Eugene Irefa Abels was born, bred and schooled in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. He hails from two oil producing Communities, Nembe and Finima and believes that they are a microcosm of the Niger Delta Region.

An exponent of the need to exorcise our Colonial past from the souls of our public servants and elected officials, he believes the art of governance has been reduced to the single person pronoun ‘I’ whereas ‘we the people’ holds no relevance.
