Cult Clash: Stray Bullet Kills Plank Seller In Osun


A young man identified as Olorunda in Ilesa, Osun State has been killed by a stray bullet on Wednesday.

KwaraReporters gathered that the Osun police command spokesperson,Yemisi Opalola, while confirming the incident in Osogbo, said that calm has been restored in the area while police investigation is ongoing.

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.

Similar cult battles had led to the killing of one person at Oke-Ijetu Area in Osogbo on Saturday, and another killing on Monday, around Sasa Area, Ibokun road, Osogbo.
