Suspected cult members have killed a middle-aged man, simply identified only as Aniyikaye, in the Owoope area of Osogbo.

Sources in the area told our correspondent that the entire neighborhood was in panic when the assailants, who were armed with different weapons, attacked the victim, who was alleged to be a member of another cult.

A resident, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said a police van which arrived at the scene after the attackers fled, took Aniyikaye’s corpse away.

It was gathered that after the killing, 10 suspected cultists were reportedly arrested during raids on black spots in Osogbo, the state capital, by men of the Amotekun Corps and the Joint Task Force.

During the raid, a suspect, who allegedly engaged the team in a gun duel, was shot in the leg.

A security source privy to the operation said the raid was carried out after the killing in the Owo-Ope area.

He said, “Our intention is to rid the state of crime. One of the cultists was also injured after he violently attacked us. He is receiving treatment at a hospital now.”
