Sus­pected cultist kills man in La­gos

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Eu­gene Agha, La­gos

A sus­pected cult group mem­ber, Ke­hinde Lawal, has al­legedly mur­dered a bat­tery charger at Ish­eri, La­gos.

The sus­pect al­legedly stabbed the victim iden­ti­fied as Mu­tiu Edun­jobi, 34, on the neck about 8pm while at­tend­ing a party.

The de­ceased, a friend of the or­ga­nizer of the party, also iden­ti­fied as Fri­day alias Ipodo, had al­legedly been tar­geted by the sus­pect since March.

The de­ceased’s fa­ther, Dauda Edun­jobi, said, “The guy who killed my son is far younger than him. They are not even friends. That boy should be about 20 or 21 years old. My son learnt his trade from his elder brother. He was not a cult mem­ber. They just felt he was sym­pa­thetic to their en­e­mies and have been threat­en­ing to kill him. It was Ipodo’s brother that in­vited him for the party. It was a de­lib­er­ate plan to kill my son. They have been telling peo­ple that they will kill him. We want the boy who killed my son and his group to be brought to jus­tice.”

La­gos State Po­lice Spokesper­son Do­lapo Bad­mos could not be reached on phone.
