Eiye vs Aiye: Banks and Other Commercial Activities Shut as Confraternities Clash in Osun
There was tension in Ilesha, Osun State on Monday as Eiye and Aiye confraternity clashed, leaving two dead.
The situation also forced banks in the community and commercial activities to shut down.
According to the Nation, the fight started after two cultists belonging to Eyie confraternity simply identified as Solomon and Bode sneaked into Ilesha from Iwara community in Atakunmosa East local government area around 7 pm on Sunday to unleash terror in the community.
The Aiye group then retaliated – shooting and hunting down the rival gang, causing people to flee.
Eyewitnesses in the community said that shop owners and residents shut their shops and houses while banks closed their doors in areas like Olomilagbala, Ereguru, Itakogun, Okesa and Imo areas of Ilesha.
