    “It is a fight between two rival groups. One of the cultists was killed yesterday (Thursday), but the situation is calm now.

    “One person was also injured, and we have arrested a suspect in relation to the violence,” Oyeyemi said.

    Repeated clashes between rival cult groups have worsened the security situation in Ogun State.

    Many residents are calling on the state governor, Dapo Abiodun, to arrest the situation.
