palpable fear has gripped residents of Ibafo Market, in the Obafemi-Owode Local Government Area of Ogun State where suspected cult members have reportedly killed an unidentified soldier.

An anonymous source confirmed that there was a clash between cultists and soldiers in the community which led to the death of one of the soldiers.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the incident.
He said the clash was caused by a crisis between Yahoo boys (Internet fraudsters) who went to bring cultists and the other was said to have invited soldiers to defend him.
