A soldier has been reportedly killed by suspected cultists at Ibafo Market, in Obafemi-Owode Local Government Area of Ogun State.
The incident which occurred around 7pm on Tuesday May 24, was confirmed by the state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi.
According to him, the issue which degenerated to violence was between internet fraudsters who invited the cultists and soldiers.
“There was a crisis between Yahoo boys (Internet fraudsters). One of them went to bring cultists and the other was said to have invited soldiers to defend him.
“A soldier was shot and rushed to a hospital. No one reported the case to the police. The soldiers were said to have initially come in their private car before a patrol team came and left afterwards. The police visited the area and everywhere is calm now.”
