The police in Ogun State have arrested eight suspected cultists over the death of a man in Ifo area of the state.

The police said they made some arrests when they clamped down on members of Eiye and Aiye cult groups on Sunday.

It was said that members of two cult groups had embarked on supremacy battle in Ifo, during which one of them identified as Ofada was shot dead by a rival cultist.

After receiving a distress call, the DPO of police divisional headquarters, CSP Adekunle Adeniyi, was said to have quickly led his men to the scene where they met two others with gunshot injuries.

“On interrogation, the arrested ones told the police that their accomplices had run to Osuke area of Onipanu Ota, where they were planning to launch another round of attack,” Oyeyemi told DAILY POST.
