Two persons have been reportedly killed while a policeman was shot during a cult clash in the Sagamu Local Government Area of Ogun State.
The cult clash occurred on Wednesday night and spread to the early morning of Thursday in Agbowa and other areas in Sagamu.
A resident of the area said the sound of gunshots rented the air during the clash by two rival cult groups, forcing the residents to scamper to safety.
A source, who did not want his name in print because of the security implication, said at the end of the clash, two corpses were recovered.
When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the incident.
Oyeyemi said a policeman was shot by the suspected cultists and has been rushed to hospital where he was responding to treatment.
He said, “The clash happened last (Wednesday) night and spread to the early morning of Thursday. We have arrested about seven suspects.
“A policeman was injured but we have succeeded in arresting seven among them and we are trailing the others.
“They shot the policeman and we have extracted some pellets of cartridges from his body. He is in a stable condition. He is still on admission.”
