An underground den for alleged ritualists have been discovered by residents of Obadeyi under Ojokoro LCDA along the Lagos/Abeokuta expressway.
Some road side sweepers who alerted residents in the early hours of Tuesday said a woman and her child were dragged into the hole as she cried for help. Following residents intervention, one Abdulraheem was brought out of the canal that links Agbado Oke Odo area still on the expressway.
Efforts by security operatives to arrest the alleged ritualist proved abortive as aggrieved youths and touts lynched him and set him ablaze as he insisted he can not confess but preferred to be killed. The Lagos state fire service truck assisted in saving his life as men from the Department put off the fire on the man that was set ablaze. While two other alleged ritualists were caught at different end of the canals around Obadeyi end and Ijaiye. They confessed to the fact that there is a ritualist den under the road that has been in operation for over four years. The suspects are presently at Ojokoro police station.
