The Ilogbo residents claimed that the attack by the suspected cultists led to the death of a boy in the community. Indegenes of Ilogbo community had reported the alleged activities of the monarch’s son to his father whom they accused of not taking any action.

Another resident of the community alleged that Adeleye was expelled from a university in Ondo State for cult related activities about five years ago.

“The prince and his group have been terrorizing our community with the shield and protection of the palace.

“The people were forced to violence because of failure of the Oba to put his child and his group under check and the death of the boy sparked the riot.

“Sacred trees usually cut when a king dies have since been cut down while the palace and Oba’s cars were vandalized.

“Seven persons including the Oba’s son have been arrested in connection with the incident while the body of the boy killed has been deposited in the mortuary.

” Oba Ajayi could not be reached for his reaction at press time as his phone was switched off. The Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Caleb Ikechukwu, confirmed the arrest of the suspects adding that the incident was still under investigation.
