Five die as cultists clash in Lagos


At least five persons including a meat vendor were on Saturday killed after suspected cultists went on rampage around Night Market, Imota in Ikorodu, a Lagos district in the early hours of the day.

It was gathered that the fight was between members of the Aye and Eiye cult groups.

It was learnt that the meat seller, identified as Olaitan Omo-Ibadan, was beheaded and his head dropped at the Inner Town Roundabout.


A source who hinted on the incident said that most residents were leaving the neighbourhood for fear of reprisal.

He said: “There was a fight early Friday morning at Imota. Cultists engaged in a serious fight and they killed five people. They severed the meat seller’s head, placed it on a platter and dropped it on the road.

“The incident caused panic as people were running for fear of a reprisal attack. I do not know why they fought but those two gangs are also clashing.

“The police later came and made some arrests. This fight was severe because cultists who escaped arrest from other parts of Lagos have moved into Ikorodu.”
