Police confirm killing of cult leader in Ogun

The Police in Ogun State have confirmed the killing of a man identified as Oloba.

Oloba, according to the Ogun State Commissioner for Police, CP Mustapha Alamutu was a suspected leader of the Eiye confraternity.

Alamutu revealed that he was reportedly killed by a rival cult group in the wee hours of Thursday.

“There was a reported case of cult killing. I am in a meeting now but will get back to you when I am through,” Alamutu said.

It was gathered that Oloba was attacked by suspected members of a rival cult group in the Ijeja area of Abeokuta South local government area of Ogun State while entering his house and was shot at by the assailants.

An eyewitness who spoke on the condition of anonymity for fear of being attacked disclosed that the assailants who entered the street from an adjoining street around 11 pm on Thursday shot at Oloba while he was disembarking from his vehicle.

“We were seated somewhere in the street when we heard a gunshot from a close distance and before we could observe what was happening, the gunmen had zoomed off on a bike.

“When we realised what had happened; we discovered that it was Oloba that was shot. He was shot in his chest, which resulted in his death. He is a known member of the Eiye Confraternity. I think those guys who shot him were Alora members.”

The source disclosed further that efforts by some residents to get him to the hospital were not successful as he reportedly died before they could get him to the hospital.
