Two suspected cultists were reportedly killed on Tuesday in a renewed clash between rival cult groups in Ilorin, Kwara State.
DAILY POST reports that the cultists were allegedly killed on Tuesday morning at Aduralere, Amilegbe area, very close to late Inspector General of Police, Sunday Adewusi’s residence in Ilorin.
Police operatives reported to the scene to capture the incident, though the identity of the persons killed could not be ascertained and reasons for the renewed clash were scanty.
Confirming the development to DAILY POST, the spokesman of the state police command, Mr Okasanmi Ajayi, said ” Two men suspected to be cultists, were hacked down around Aduralere area of Ilorin metro by a suspected rival cult group in the wee hours of today 16/3/2021.”
He said, “Efforts are in top gear to get the perpetrators of the heinous crime arrested, while calm has been fully restored.”
Okasanmi, said the Police Commissioner, Mr Mohammed Lawal Bagega, has directed DPOs to activate aggressive patrols of the state.
He also advised law-abiding citizens to go about their lawful businesses.
