CULTISTS KILL 30-YEAR OLD MAN IN IBADAN
A 30-year-old man, identified as Lanre Ahmed, was reportedly killed during a cult clash in Ibadan, Oyo State, on Saturday.
According to his elder sister, Yetunde Ahmed, Lanre was shot dead by members of a cult who were said to be on the trail of some youths in the community.
Yetunde said, “We live at Kudeti community in Ibadan. I saw my late brother in the evening, precisely around 6pm; and he was well and kicking. I learnt that he came back home briefly around 8pm yesterday (Saturday).
“We heard that some hoodlums waylaid him on the bridge and shot him dead. I got the news through a telephone call.’’
She added that her deceased brother wasn’t based in Ibadan, and that he returned to Ibadan in the wake of the One Million Boys rage at Ago Iwoye in Ogun State.
The Police Public Relations Officer, Oyo State Command, Olugbenga Fadeyi, said an investigation has begun, and those behind the killing shall be arrested and brought to justice.
