In a related development, Mariam, a 10-year-old girl, was reported dead when she was shot in the head by alleged cult members during a supremacy battle at Oja Oba, an ancient market in Ilorin, the state capital of Kwara.
Eyewitnesses claim that suspected cultists from the Eye and Aye confraternities attacked the market and began shooting randomly. Mariam and her three-year-old brother, Abdulraheem, were injured by one of the gunfire. Marian tragically lost a lot of blood and died as a result of the injuries she received.
Members of the Aiye were claimed to have followed a rival member known as Efo to a location near the market and opened fire on him. The warring cult factions exchanged bullets as a result of this.
Mariam and Abdulraheem were reportedly with their mother, Kehinde, who sells bread at a market stand, when a stray gunshot struck them. During the clash, a young man named Sulyman was claimed to have been brutally murdered.
The state police command’s spokeswoman confirmed the occurrence and stated that an inquiry into the regrettable situation had begun. He did say, though, that he was unaware of the fatalities.
