There is palpable tension in Sagamu, Ogun State, as suspected cultists have reportedly resumed a supremacy battle, barely two months after many youths were murdered in the community.
Our correspondent reports that about 20 persons were killed in September when members of the Eiye and Aiye confraternities took turns to kill one another.
Residents of the town told our correspondent that they “heard gunshots in the early hours of Saturday.”
The Police Spokesman, Omolola Odutola, on Saturday, confirmed that there was a suspected murder incident in Sagamu.
According to her, the command “received a report of a suspected murder in Sagamu.”
Odutola quoted the Sagamu Divisional Police Officer, as saying that while he and his men were on a vehicular patrol along Ewusi Street towards Ita Oba roundabout, they intercepted information about a shooting incident.
“The report stated that a group of unidentified gunmen on motorcycles shot and killed a young man whose identity is currently unknown.
“Upon receiving the information, the DPO immediately proceeded towards the location of the gunshots. Upon arrival, they discovered the deceased lying in a pool of blood. The examination of the body revealed bullet wounds on the neck, stomach, and hand. Additionally, three expended cartridges were found at the scene,” she stated.
The body of the deceased has been transported to a nearby morgue, with two large cowries found on him, it was said.
Odutola confirmed that the State Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alamutu, “has personally arrived in Sagamu to oversee an open investigation into this tragic killing.”
