Cultists in Ijebu-Ode area of Ogun State, members of Eiye and Aiye confraternities, are reportedly taking turns to retaliate the killings of their members.
Residents of Ijebu-Ode were said to fled their homes as the cultists continue to terrorize the ancient city.

A young man simply identified as Hassan, who is a member of Aiye Confraternity, was said to have been killed in the evening of the festival by a member of Eiye Confraternity, who is his friend.
