Unidentified landlord was Saturday feared killed after suspected armed Robbers invaded Micon area in Ahamadiya, a Lagos suburb.

This was even as dwellers of Abule-Egba, Alagbado, Alakuko, Meiran, Sango areas of Lagos and Ogun States have been fear gripped after these cultists allegedly embarked on street-to-street robbery.

The boys numbering over 50, were alleged to have also raided Mao Junction at Kola, Adenola Abiola, Adeneka, Dalemo fleacing traders and residents of their money.

It was gathered that the attacks commenced since Thursday after rival cult groups clashed in Ifo Local Government Area of Ogun State which spiraled into Lagos.

The hoodlums said to be between ages 19 and 27, were alleged to have taken advantage of the supremacy tussle to attack innocent traders and residents, fleacing them of their money and other valuables.

It was learnt that they move around with different weapons which they used to threaten their victims to surrender their money and allegedly rape women in some places, a development that forced most of the residents to pick up sticks, cutlasses and storm the street in self defence.

Raising alarm on the robbery through his Twitter account, a researcher Olagoke Sunday said: “Confirmed! “Boys” have started street to street robbery around Alagbado, Alakuko up to Sango axis. This might spread to other locations if drastic measure is not taken by the government.

“Please stay under lock and key indoors, be careful with movements around your hood. Avoid lonely areas and please keep safe. The next few days might obviously be more challenging.”
