The Ondo State Police Command has arrested three young men in Zion area of Igbokoda, headquarters of Ilaje Local Government Area of the state, for allegedly taking part in a cult clash leading to the death of one person.
Some members of two rival cult groups clashed in the town on Wednesday evening, where a member of a group was shot dead by the rival gang.
The remains of the deceased were said to have been buried immediately by his group while planning to launch a reprisal attack to avenge the death of their member.
The identity of the member was said to be unknown as at the time of writing this report but Tribune Online gathered the police have exhumed the corpse for investigation purpose.
The source said: “The cult members killed the boy, a member of another rival cult group in Igbokoda and everywhere became tensed.
“The boy and his friend were abducted by the cult group around Larada Street in Igbokoda. His friend escaped with serious injuries but the deceased was not lucky as they shot and hacked him to death in the bush.”
The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mr Tee-Leo Ikoro, who confirmed the incident, said the three suspects were in the custody of the State Criminal Investigation Department of the command.
” We have commenced an investigation into the matter,” Ikoro stated.
