This year’s Sallah celebration turned bloody in Ijebu-Igbo in Ijebu North local government area of Ogun State yesterday as two rival cult groups engaged in a clash leaving two persons dead.
The victims were identified as Abiodun Adeneye and Taiwo Yussuf.
It was gathered that the annual Aleke carnival in the town provided the ground for the Eiye and Aiye cult groups to engage in a supremacy battle leading to the serious fight.
The State Police commissioner, Ikemuefuna Okoye, who confirmed the death of the two, said that three suspects had equally been arrested.
He said a special patrol team from the Police command had been drafted to the town to calm the situation and keep law and order in the area.
