Men believed to be cult members attcked and killed a 23-year-old DSTV engineer, Segun Olukoga, in the Mushin area of Lagos on Thursday February 20th 2014.

According to reports, the victim was trailed by the gang members to Amu Street around 11am. He was first hit by a sledge hammer then stabbed severally with a dagger.

Olukoga, described as a quiet and respectful young man, was the only son of his parents.

Punch reports:

The matter was said to have been reported at the Olosan Police Division, Mushin.

The source said, “The incident happened on Thursday, February 20, 2014. I suddenly got a telephone call from my younger sister that someone told her to receive Segun’s (Olukoga) corpse in the hospital where he had been taken to.

“I heard that he went to Solomon Hall for something. Then the gang members followed and when they got him, they first hit him with sledge a hammer in the head and then brought out a dagger and stabbed him many times.

“My brother was a gentle and respectful young man and did not have any misunderstanding with anybody.”

The source said the police had always been helpless in the many cases of murder in Mushin.

“We are leaving it to God,” she added.

Sources within the area identified the man who led the attack on Olukoga as one Adebayo, aka Oyinbo, a notorious gang leader in Mushin.

He was said to be on the run and had been declared wanted by the police for the murder of no fewer than seven other people.

Our correspondent learnt that other members of the group included Jemila, Angba, Kokoro, Wasiu Olori Esho, Ajikawo, Casting, Lati Ika, Ibrahim, Seke.

Investigations by our correspondent revealed that the series of murders in Mushin were caused by  a fall out within a particular gang in Mushin.

Some members of a faction, together with one Segun Obama, had reportedly embraced peace and declared that they were no longer interested in cult clashes.

Segun Obama was reported to have been killed few days after returning from prison and making his stance known.

A resident, Thompson Babajide, said the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, Umar Manko, had organised a peace meeting in the area on Wednesday, a day before Olukoga was murdered.

“But despite that, Oyinbo, who is also known as Dagger, still killed Segun Olukoga. This Oyinbo has been linked with the killing of about 10 people and I know seven of those people personally.

 “The police know the place where he is hiding presently, but they may not do anything because he is a political thug.”

 The Police Public Relations Officer, Ngozi Braide, said she would call the area commander of Mushin and get back to our correspondent. However, she had yet to fulfill her promise as of the time of going to the press at 10pm.
