In a tragic development in Onikolobo area of Abeokuta on January 15, 2014, Wednesday, two people became victims of alleged secret cult members, which unleashed terror on residents of the area.
According to Vanguard, several others were injuries, when members of the secret cult invaded Onikolobo, combing houses in search of their targets.
It has been also learnt that members of a particular secret cult had been involved in a brawl with members of the outlawed Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC), a few days before the incident.

The state Police Public Relations Officer (PRO), Muyiwa Adejobi, confirmed the incident.
He further revealed that said policemen from Adigbe divisional headquarters raided the suspected hideout of the cultists where seven of the suspects were apprehended while smoking Indian hemp.
