FOUR  persons were killed during a  clash by two rival cult groups in Ondo town at the weekend.

Two of the cultists were, however, apprehended by the police.  Sunday Vanguard gathered that the cult groups may have belonged to a political party.

Dependable source said that the bloody clash ensued when supporters of a chieftain of the party in the town who openly defected to another party  before the last governorship election wanted to return and were  rebuffed.

This reportedly led  to a bloody clash and dangerous weapons were freely used by the two warring groups.

Sunday Vanguard gathered that the clash started at the  party  secretariat  and spread to different locations in Ondo.

The corpses  of the deceased  persons were found at Odojomu Street of the ancient town.

Contacted, Ondo State Police Command image maker,  Femi Joseph, who confirmed the incident, said  investigation on the matter had commenced.
