Residents of Ikorodu, Lagos State were weekend thrown into panic as suspected cult members hacked a man to death in the area.

The man, a tailor and father of two, identified as Mr. Segun Showemimo, was killed by the suspected cult members numbering about four, all dressed in black clothes and blue berets, in his shop at Ikorodu on Saturday afternoon at Itunla, Lemo Compound.

According to the Punch, the suspects stormed the area on two motorcycles and started shooting into the air to register their presence in the community.
The deceased’s brother, identified only as Morufu, speaking on the incident, was quoted to have said the cult members stoned the body after they shot him dead.

Morufu said: “My room window is close to my late brother’s shop. What surprised me most was that after they shot him on the chest and in the head, on their way out of his shop, they brought out stones from the polythene bags they were carrying and started stoning his remains.

“They also danced round the body before they left. We were helpless.

“Nobody could confront them because we were not armed, but they were fully armed with locally made pistols.
“What led to his killing is what I don’t understand because he was an easy going person.”

The police spokesperson, Dolapo Badmus confirmed the report on Monday, saying policemen from Igbogbo Division evacuated Showemimo’s body.

Badmus said investigations were ongoing to ascertain the reason for the attack.

“All perpetrators will be made to face the law,” Badmus said.
