CULTISTS BRUTALISE BARBER FOR DATING MEMBER’S WIFE
Some suspected cultists invaded Olawale Street, Ire Akari Estate, Isolo, Lagos, assaulting a barber, Nnakaeye Eze, for dating the wife of one Darlington ─ one of their members.
The cultists, who were about 11, came with weapons such as axes and knives.
It was gathered that the assailants, said to be members of the Aiye Confraternity, came around 10.30pm.
Speaking with PUNCH on Friday, Eze, who still had bloodstained eyes, said the suspected cultists could have killed him if he had not escaped.
He said, “The cultists stormed into my shop at about 10.30pm, and started hitting me with their weapons. They came with two of their leaders, one Darlington and Big 7. The man, Darlington, accused me of dating his wife.
“It is not true that I dated his wife. I am also married with one child. They did not only injured me, they also vandalised my shop, stealing my wallet which contained N21,000.”
The 35-year-old, who said he managed to escape from the scene, added that he reported the matter at the Ago-Okota Police Division the following morning.
Eze, who showed us some scars on his legs and back from the attack, added that it was the police who took him to a nearby hospital for treatment.
“The cultists, also called by an alias, Egedege, are terrorising the Ire Akari, Ago Okota residents. They come in the evening, and lurk around relaxation spots, waiting to unleash terror at night,” he added.
The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Kenneth Nwosu, however, said the matter was not reported to the Ago-Okota Division, adding that the complainant should see the divisional police officer and explain himself.
He said, “There was no record of such incident at Ago-Okota. Let the man see the DPO and explain what exactly is the matter with him.”
