Two persons have lost their lives in a brutal cult clash in Ondo, headquarters of Ondo West Local Government Area of Ondo State.

The clash was the aftermath of an argument that ensued among some members of rival cult groups in the town during a ceremony involving residents of the town and some indigenes who came home for Christmas celebration.

The deceased was reportedly rushed to the Ondo trauma centre where he was confirmed dead.

Also, at Shora area of the town, a clash among rival cult members claimed the life of a yet-to-be-identified man.

Sources said the deceased was shot by two other persons who were members of another cult group after an argument with the deceased.

In another clash where two persons were said to have sustained injuries, two persons who were on a motorbike suddenly shot at them before fleeing.
