    Suspected cultists ‘overrun’ Lagos, Ogun



    By Emmanuel Udom

    There are indications that the ravaging cult war in parts of Lagos and Ogun state in the last 48-hours has resulted in quite a number of people being feared killed and property destroyed.

    Our correspondent gathered that from Sunday, August 7, through to Monday, August 8, it has been one hell of a bloodbath, violence and pandemonium around Odogunyan, Igando, Sango Ota, Ajegunle, sagamu and Iba.

    A source said that residents of Fakale, Igode and Emuren communities in Sagamu local government area of Ogun state, south-west Nigeria, have started to flee their homes.

    The flee is said to be connected with speculations that members of  Eiye Confraternity plan to unleash mayhem during their three day anniversary, which began Sunday, August 7.

    While some sagamu residents are still contemplating fleeing their communities, sources said that a top police officer may have been killed when suspected cultists unleashed mayhem at Odogunyan.

    Violence also broke out at Ajugunle in Lagos, south-west Nigeria on Sunday, where residents said suspected cultists, fully armed terrorize the area with reckless abandon.

    At Temilade area of Sango Ota, in Ogun state, close to Tamac Street, three persons were feared killed, Monday evening when  armed suspected cultists allegedly stormed the area as part of their activities to mark their anniversary.

    But, Dolapo Badmos, police image maker for Lagos did not pick her phone for official police comments of the activities of cultists around Lagos.
