3 People Killed As Cult Groups Clash In Lagos
Three persons were confirmed dead following a clash between two cult groups on Tuesday in Lagos.
The incident occurred when the rivals openly disagreed at about 10pm in the Somulu area.
Those killed include: leader of Eiye cult group in the area, Tunde Awokoya, 36, alias Chop-Up, one Gabriel and another unidentified man.
It was gathered that members of the Eiye and Aye cult groups face-off earlier on Tuesday but were dispersed by policemen, who got information about it.

However, the Aye group allegedly targeted Chop-Up, who had gone to a beer-parlour on Abiodun Street to cool off and murdered him there.
Some of Chop-Up’s members, who were with him, went on rampage, snuffing life out of Gabriel, who was at a barber’s shop.
As at midnight, the bodies of the deceased were said to be lying on the streets as people were afraid to come out of their homes.
