The Ondo State Security Network codenamed Amotekun Corps, has dismissed the news making the rounds that one of its officers was killed in a bloody cult clash with vigilante group.
It was widely reported by the media that some gunmen suspected to be cultists on Friday allegedly shot dead an Amotekun operative and two others in Ondo town.
But, the Ondo state Corps Commander of Amotekun, Chief Adetunji Adeleye said his men only went to the scene of the incident to restore normalcy.
Mr. Adeleye said that there were casualties in the clash, but no Amotekun officer was shot.
He added that security operatives including his men had been deployed to the area for manhunt of the troublemakers.
It was however gathered that the attack was a reprisal attack between two cult groups while a vigilante man suspected to belong to another cult group was killed in the process.
