Ijebu-Ode residents raise alarm over cult killings



Residents of Ijebu-Ode in Ogun State have called on government to help stop killings that allegedly claimed 13 lives.

Two members of Aiye and 11 members of Eiye Confraternity were allegedly killed making a total of 13 people.

Some residents, who spoke to journalists, alleged that the gangs were being sponsored to cause mayhem and unsettle those going about their normal businesses.
