A deadly clash by two rival cult groups has resulted to the death of an unidentified man at Alapere in Ketu, Lagos.
The incident took place at Modupe Street, off Kazeem Street in Alapere late on Sunday.
A resident of the area said that the cultists came from a nearby street, describing the area as a hotbed of cult activities.
The Alapere cult war has been on for more than three years, leading to the death of no fewer than eight people within the period.
The source named the rival cults as members of Eiye and Aye confraternity.
“These cultists are always at war with each other, shooting guns at night all the time.
“Kazeem, Aminu and Akampson Streets near the transformer at Alapere are notorious for cult activities,” the source said.
The spokesman for the Lagos Police Command, Mr Chike Oti, confirmed the development, saying that the dead man was stabbed to death.
Oti said that the identity of the dead man was not yet known.
He said, however, that the body had been removed by policemen from the Alapere Division and deposited at a mortuary.
The spokesman said that no arrest had been made on the development.
