A young man has been killed by men suspected to be in cultists in a reprisal attack.
In what was clearly seen as a reprisal attack, some suspected cultists snuffed life out of a young man in the Ikorodu area of Lagos State, on Sunday, March 6, after he was tracked down and hacked to death in broad daylight.
According to witnesses, the man identified as Sunshine, was attacked at Jalagugbo Street in the area by the men who pursued him to the street and shot at him several times but the bullets could not penetrate his body, so they brought out machetes and hacked him to a slow, painful death.
After making sure he was dead, the cultists allegedly called on anyone who belonged to Sunshine's group to come out and face them. After waiting for a while, escaped on their motorcycles, shooting sporadically into the air.
Those in the know say the deceased must have been murdered in revenge for the killing of a rival gang member.
