Arikuyeri Mile 12
A cult altercation claimed the life of Sulaimon Onaolapo, a senior official for the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) in Lagos.
Attackers killed him with a machete after crossing the bridge at mile 12 while moving towards Owode.
The Mile 12 motor park was under the management of Mr. Onaolapo, also known as Arikuyeri, until his death.
Information obtained by MandyNews.com indicates that the clashing cult gangs exchanged gunfire at the vehicle parks near the Mile 12 area of Nigeria’s most populous city during their struggle for power, killing one person and injuring a number of others.
The now-viral video captures Arikuyeri being murdered by a group of youngsters who were thought to be members of an opposing sect.
The three young boys were cruelly slicing him as he lay flat on the ground wearing only a singlet.
There have been thousands of views of the video since it was first posted on Twitter.
Responding to the cult confrontation at mile 12 Benjamin Hundeyin, a police spokesperson for Lagos, asked Nigerians on social media who was to blame for the prevalence of cultism in the nation.
“In a bid to tackle cultism, let’s first understand the cause. Who is to be most blamed for cultism amongst the youth? The comment section is open for other answers or suggestions. Trust me, the right stakeholders are reading,” he tweeted.
The unfortunate incident was also confirmed by him to the media. According to him, security personnel have brought things back to normal.
