Security forces have tightened their grip on Sagamu in Ogun state, after quelling the bloody renewed cult clashes by rival cultist groups in the town.
The renewed cult clashes by three cult groups, which started on Monday night, reached a frightening level on Tuesday morning, with unspecified number of cultists feared dead.
There has been a massive deployment of police, Amotekun corps, and So-Safe corps personnel to the town, who are now keeping vigil at identified flash points in the town.

Commander of the state Amotekun corps, retired police commissioner, David Akinremi, says that security forces are now on top of the situation, asking residents not to panic.
Akinremi speaking to a Rockcity FM correspondent, Yemi Eniola, says that some of the wanted cultist kingpins in the town had been arrested by his men and handed over to the police.
The Amotekun corps commander says that security forces had intelligence on some of the hideouts of the cultists, and are on the track of those of them on the run since the operation started.
