Eiye Cultists & Aye Black Axe Confraternity Clash Kills 4 In Ijebu Ode Ogun State
A violent rivalry war between Nigeria’s most dangerous cultists, Eiye and Aye axemen has led to the death of 4 people. On Tuesday, the 2 cult groups attacked each other on Olisa Street , Ejinrin Road and Degun area of Ijebu Ode.
According to eyewitnesses, the violence was triggered by the Eiye cult group, out to avenge the killing of two of their members over the weekend, by Aye group.
On Wednesday afternoon again, the feuding cult gangs engaged themselves in a shoot at sight at Joke street, beside Ijebu Ode Grammar School, off Abeokuta Road. Pandemonium was the order of the day as all residents and business owners were forced to ran for safety as the cultists engaged themselves in a violent shootout using sophisticated guns.
Read what area residents who witnessed the war said:
“You need to see how these boys were shooting this afternoon. Infact,you need to see the kind of guns they are using,I think these boys must be checkmated or else,we will back to square one in this town.This governor is doing fine in terms of security, but I sense a foul play somewhere. God knows best,” said a concerned resident of the town.
Another resident said: “My concern now is the innocent old women who are now being attacked and their shops looted by these cult guys.
Many shops were looted in my area and I was told by my girlfriend that they came to their area too at Apebi street and looted some shops and even attacked some people and collected some money from them. My brother,why all these, in a civilised town like Ijebu Ode? This calls for government urgent attention”.
Police officials in Igbeba, Ijebu Ode however said they are able to put the cultists under control.
