A wave of violence gripped the Ijeun Tuntun area of Abeokuta, Ogun State, on Sunday night, as suspected cultists on motorcycles opened fire, claiming the life of one Olumide Ifeoluwa, known as Tescom, in a brazen attack.

According to eyewitnesses, the tragic incident unfolded at a local car wash where the victim frequently gathered with friends for relaxation. Reports suggest that assailants, riding motorcycles, descended on Tescom and fatally shot him in the head, leaving residents startled and fearful of potential reprisal attacks.

An anonymous resident, shedding light on the incident, revealed the chilling sequence of events, stating, "Tescom, as he was fondly called, was at the car wash around 6 p.m. when the gunmen struck. They targeted him specifically, firing a fatal shot to his head before swiftly fleeing the scene."

"The sudden eruption of violence sent shockwaves through the community, prompting many to flee in fear," the resident continued, underscoring the pervasive sense of unease that gripped the neighborhood in the aftermath of the shooting.

Confirming the tragic incident, SP Omolola Odutola, spokesperson for the Ogun State Police Command, stated, "One Olumide Danish Ifeloluwa 'Tescom' was shot in the head by unidentified gunmen in an ash-colored Corolla with no registration number at Somefun, Ijeun Tuntun, today at 9:55 hrs. Dr. has confirmed one Danisa dead."

The fatal shooting comes amid heightened concerns over escalating cult-related violence in Abeokuta, with similar incidents claiming multiple lives in recent months. In February alone, suspected cultists were responsible for the deaths of at least four individuals across different areas of the city.

In response to the surge in violence, Ogun State Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alamutu, initiated an amnesty program, urging individuals involved in cult activities to renounce their membership and surrender their firearms. Alamutu emphasized that those who refused to heed the call for peace would face severe consequences under the law.

As the community mourns the loss of Tescom and grapples with the ongoing threat of cult-related violence, authorities remain vigilant in their efforts to restore peace and ensure the safety of residents across Ogun State.
