Pandemonium In Ikorodu: As Residents Anticipate Cultists Attack Today
There is tension across settlements in Odogunyan town of Ikorodu North Council Area of Lagos State, over anticipated bloody clash between rival cult groups tomorrow.
Investigation revealed that the anticipated terror is in connection with planned commemoration of
a day tagged “Eight – Eight”.
“Eight – Eight”, the eight day of the eight month of the year according to some residents of
Odogunyan town, is day noted for reprisal attacks among cultists.
Inhabitants of communities along the boundary of Lagos and Ogun state via Ikorodu such as
Odo-kekere, Ogijo, Ita-Oliwo and others have therefore appealed to Governor Akinwunmi Ambode and his Ogun State counterpart to ensure heavy presence of security operatives in the area to forestall possible breach of public peace.
You will recall that some innocent residents of Fakale and Ogijo which were neighbouring towns of Odogunyan lost their lives a month ago when cultists marked the “Seven – Seven” day.
Naijanewsrave Correspondent reports that town criers went round some settlements urging residents to stay indoor while some holiday coaching centres in Odogunyan town announced closure on Monday
and Tuesday for safety.
