Members of a cult group on Sunday killed a member of a rival cult group, Hammed Tomori-Olugbodi in Osogbo, Osun State.

Daily Trust gathered that the cultists trailed the deceased to a football pitch at BCGA area, near the Old Garage and shot him in his abdomen.

It was gathered that the deceased was killed in revenge for the killing of a member of the other group.

The deceased was standing trial in a court in Osogbo over a murder case and he was remanded in court few weeks ago and later granted bail.

At the time of filing this report, the cultists were on the rampage in Osogbo as they were said to be hunting other members of Olugbodi’s camp.

The Commissioner of Police in the state, Fimihan Adeoye confirmed the incident and assured that the situation was under control.

Meanwhile, a top security personnel in the state who spoke on condition of anonymity expressed worry over the way the court was granting bail to the cultists when arrested and arraigned.

He said: “The court is not helping us. We will risk our lives to arrest those criminals and arraign them but the court will just release them on bail. The boy that was killed today was arraigned in court recently over murder and remanded in prison. Few weeks later, the court granted him bail and trouble started again which led to his death eventually.”  (Daily Trust)
