They were both members of rival cult groups, and as a result, became enemies of each other.

They had attacked each other on many occasions, taking the lives of their members.

Finally, one of them had to go down, and the other faced the wrath of the law over it.

He was paraded alongside 47 other suspected criminals who were arrested for offences ranging from armed robbery, murder, and theft.

Oreneye was arrested by operatives of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squard (FSARS) at a drinking joint at Oke Ilewo in Abeokuta.

Oreneye, speaking with newsmen when he was paraded at the command headquarters, Eleweran, Abeokuta, said he killed Shakiru, popularly known as ‘School Boy’, because his (Shakiru) group had killed four members of his own cult group

“It is true that I shot and killed Shakiru because he had killed three members of our (Aiye) cult group.

“Again, he had made attempts on my life on three occasions, but I was able to escape, and I had to strike before he would strike.”

Recovered from the cult group were one pump action gun, one cut-to-size locally made pistol, five live cartridges and assorted charms.

Oreneye will be taken to court to determine his fate.
