2 killed in fresh cult clash in Kwara

Date: 2016-01-26

 

Two persons have been reportedly killed in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital, by suspected cultists at different locations in a renewed cult clash.

Tribune Online gathered that one of the victims was murdered at Balogun Fulani junction in the town on Sunday night, while the other was killed at Tanke area on Monday as the suspected cultists shot sporadically into the air to scare residents.

According to eyewitness, the suspected cultists used motorcycles to perpetrate the dastard act during the two operations, thereby throwing the areas into pandemonium.

When contacted, the spokesperson of the police in the state, ASP Ajayi Okasanmi, confirmed the incident at Balogun Fulani, stressing that he was yet to be informed about that of Tanke area.

He, however, assured that the command had mapped out strategies to curtail the killings, noting that residents should go about their lawful businesses peacefully.
