Cultists: Osun Secondary School Students Violent Clash

No fewer than 15 pupils were injured on Monday as suspected secondary school student cultists engaged in a violent clash involving pupils of St. James Anglican, and Ansar-Ud-Deen Secondary Schools in Osogbo.


Eyewitnesses told our correspondent that most of the students engaged in the clash belonged to rival cult groups.

Some said it was a fight over a girl while other said it was a reprisal by a group whose member was injured on Friday.

Sources hinted that the rampaging students ran in different directions, thus causing panic, compelling vehicles and motorcycles passing through Oba Adesoji Aderemi, Osogbo East By-pass to make a detour, with a view to avoiding being caught up in the melee.

A female student said, “Just as we were about settling down in school this morning, friends of the student of Saint James’ student, who was injured during  last week fight, stormed our school and started using matchete and charms on us.
“Some students were injured. We learnt that it was a reprisal, one student, who was said to be a cult guy, was said to have been beaten by members of a rival group and others came on a revenge mission.”
