Stray Bullet Kills Man In Ilesha Cult Clash

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) –  The Police Command in Osun has confirmed the killing of a young man, identified as Olorunda,  who was hit by a stray bullet in Ilesha, Osun State by suspected cultists.

The command spokesperson, SP Yemisi  Opalola,  confirmed  the incident in Osogbo on Wednesday.

Opalola, however, said that peace was restored in the area while police investigation was ongoing on the incident.

He also said that officers were on the trail for the culprits.

According to reports, armed men suspected to be cultists, at about 9.00 a.m allegedly shot at a rival gang member at Irojo Area, Ilesa, but missed their target and ended up killing Olorunda.

An eye witness, who spoke on the condition of anonymity told newsmen that the victim, who works at a sawmill in the area, went to buy cowpea for his breakfast when he was hit by a stray bullet.

The witness said some assailants, suspected to be cult members, were after a renounced Eye cult member in the area, who they shot at and missed, but their bullet ended up killing an innocent person.

It was, however, learnt that the attack was a spillover from the exchange of gun battle between Eye from Irojo and Afe confraternity from Iwara on Tuesday evening.
