Cultists Set Two Buildings on Fire in Lagos

Suspected cultists on Wednesday invaded Sholanke Street in Akoka area of Yaba, Lagos State and set two buildings on fire. The hoodlums allegedly refused to allow the victims numbering over 25 to take their belongings before starting the fire.


It was learnt that rival cultists had clashed on Ibukunolu Street on Tuesday at about 7pm, and had stabbed a 17-year-old student, identified only as Rilwan, to death.

Angry rival cultists subsequently stormed Sholanke Street in the night, and threatened that they would raze Makayoko’s father’s apartment as a reprisal for the killing of Rilwan.

It was learnt that some residents alerted the policemen from the Bariga division to the unrest and the police came on patrol during the night.

The cultists, however, stormed the street at about 7am on Wednesday, locked the street gates and set fire to Makayoko’s father’s house.

The landlord of the building was identified simply as Oyedele.
