Residents of the area say the rival cult members in Oyingbo and Mushin have led to the death of a few people.
The police went to Adewusi Street, and searched the place for more than one hour, but they did not find anything. They patrolled the place and when they did not see anything, they left. Around 10pm when everybody had gone home, they brought the man to the Railway Line and push him from head down into a filled canal. Only his leg was sticking out.”he said
According to one of them who spoke on the condition of anonymity, one person was stabbed to death by rival cult group. They accuse the police in the area of being complicit in the matter
"The police in this area have been compromised. When we called them yesterday that someone had been captured around Oyewusi Street, an informant of the cultists whom we suspect work with the police, quickly alerted the guys and they left the place. They brought the victim to our side to make it look as if we are responsible for his death. Their plan is to set the Oyingbo boys against us and trigger a war.”one of them saidSource: Punch
