by Adeola Balogun


A clash of suspected cultists in Lagos State has left at least four persons dead and several others injured.

The clash, which allegedly involved rival cults, occurred on Tuesday night, in the Somolu and Ketu areas of the state. It was gathered that suspected members of the Eiye confraternity attacked a man, simply identified as Seyi, in the wee hours of Monday at his home in the Ajelogo area of Ketu.

He was reportedly dragged outside and clubbed to death, after the cultists had raped his wife in front of him and flung his nine-month old baby out of the bed. Three persons were said to have been arrested by policemen from the Alapere division in connection with the crime. The suspects said to have been transferred to the state Criminal Investigation Department, Yaba, were reportedly leaving the scene when they were accosted.

Seyi’s widow told policemen at the station that there had been threats on her husband’s life by the cultists, who accused him of being an informant to another cult group, Black Axe confraternity.

Seyi’s death reportedly led to reprisal attacks in Somolu on Tuesday night, which left three persons dead. The cultists were said to have stormed Ajose area, where they first shot one Tunde dead. The late Tunde’s assailants were said to have accused him of raping one of their member’s pregnant wife during an earlier attack in Ponrele area of Abule Ijesha.

The attack said to have started at 10.30 pm was launched at Fadipe, Popoola and Oreofe areas. Spokesperson for the Lagos State Police Command, Ngozi Braide, confirmed the clash. She said though there was claim that only one person died during the clash but no official report had been made to that effect. She noted that the police had not seen any corpse either.
