Three persons have been killed in a renewed clash between members of the Aiye and Eiye cult groups in Owo Town, the headquarters of Owo Local Government Area of Ondo State.

It was gathered that they were shot dead at different locations in Owo on Tuesday night, May 10, 2023.

The bodies of the victims were reportedly carted away by their assailants.
