The Police Command in Osun has confirmed the killing of a young man, identified as Olorunda, in Ilesha, Osun by suspected cultists.
According to reports, armed men suspected to be cultists, at about 9.00 a.m allegedly shot at a rival gang member at Irojo Area, Ilesa, but missed their target and ended up killing Olorunda.
The witness said some assailants, suspected to be cult members, were after a renounced Eye cult member in the area, who they shot at and missed, but their bullet ended up killing an innocent person.
It was, however, learnt that the attack was a spillover from the exchange of gun battle between Eye from Irojo and Afe confraternity from Iwara on Tuesday evening.
The News Agency of Nigeria recalls that similar cult battles had led to the killing of one person at Oke-Ijetu Area in Osogbo on Saturday, and another killing on Monday, around Sasa Area, Ibokun road, Osogbo. (NAN)
