Ikorodu is in the news again and this time around it is not about Badoo.

Four students of the Lagos State Polytechnic, Ikorodu, were injured after suspected cult members invaded their hostel.

The attackers stormed the hostel under the pretext of  searching for a stolen laptop.

They were, however, repelled by some occupants, who doubted their claim.

They reportedly returned afterwards in large numbers, calling out the name of a National Diploma student.

In the ensuing confusion, four students were said to have been injured and taken to a hospital for treatment.

It was gathered that the injured students attempted to defend the ND student, who had earlier complained of threats from some cult members who wanted to initiate him into their group.

A witness, who identified himself only as Bayo, said, “When they first came in the afternoon, they said they were searching for a missing item. They said the person that stole it passed through the estate. We engaged them and they failed in their attempt to gain entrance.

“Suddenly, around a few minutes past 9pm, a larger group came and started calling the name of one of us in the hostel to come out. Immediately they called his name, we remembered that he once told us that some people were disturbing him to join a cult. Some of us went out and we asked others to stay with him in the hostel. Four of us were injured after confronting the cult members.

The incident has been reported to the school management and the police authorities; an official statement is still being expected.
