A member of the House of Representatives representing Ijebu North/Ijebu-East/Ogun Waterside federal constituency, Segun Adekoya, has decried the spate of killings by rival cult groups in Ago-Iwoye and the Ijebu areas of Ogun State.
Adekoya, while speaking with journalists said two persons were killed on Sunday and Monday evening in different parts of the towns.
Nigerian Pilot gathered that violence broke out between two rival cult groups in the Olabisi Onabanjo University in Ago-Iwoye on Sunday, claiming two persons within two days.
It will be recalled that this was coming few days after the State Police Command said it arrested no fewer than 30 suspected cultists terrorising Ijebu axis of the state.
The federal lawmaker said he had informed the State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Valentine Ntomchukwu and the Area Commander of Ago-Iwoye about the two incidents.
He charged all security agencies to brace up and arrest any cult member disturbing the peace of the area in particular and the state in general.He said, “the activities of rival cult groups in Ago-Iwoye in recent times are heart-rendering. A suspected member of a particular cult group was cut down on Sunday while another one’s life was equally cut short in retaliation for the previous day’s incident.
“These killings are worrisome. The people of Ago-Iwoye and the Ijebu axis are living in fear on a daily basis. We appeal to the police and other security agencies in the state to urgently come to the aid of the people of Ago-Iwoye and the Ijebu axis and protect us from the menace of these cult and murderous groups.”
