Late Edunjobi, a 34-year-old battery charger, who resided
at 3, Egbedina Street, Isheri, was said to have been lured to
the party by suspected cultists, Sunday, who had plotted to
kill him for being sympathetic to a rival cult group.
A fight broke out between rival cult groups at about 8p.m.,
during which dangerous objects were reportedly used. In
the process, the father of two was allegedly stabbed in the
neck by one Kehinde Lawal, a suspected cultist.
When news of Edunjobi’s attack went round, youths in the
area reportedly went berserk as they attempted to carry out
jungle justice on his assailant and members of his cult
group. Eyewitnesses said the angry youths stormed the
assailant’s residence at 5, Ajegunle Street, Isheri and
threatened to set it ablaze but for the intervention of
policemen.
He was my everything—WIFE
When Vanguard visited the deceased’s home yesterday, his
widow, Mariam, was seen with her 41-day-old baby, while
the elder one, aged six, rested her head on her mother’s lap.
She said: “My husband was not a cultist. They just killed
him for nothing. He was my friend, brother and father. He
promised to open a shop for me when my baby turns one
and half. “Now he is gone. Who will take care of me and
my children?”
Father of the deceased, Mr. Dauda Edunjobi, disclosed that
cultists were always at loggerheads in the area, calling on
Lagos State government to address the issue, as it was
getting out of hand. He maintained that his son was never a
cultist.
According to the distraught father, “The person that stabbed
my son to death is about 10 years his junior. They were
never friends. My late son was an easy-going fellow, who
was loved by all. “He was not a cult member. Their
grievance was that he was sympathetic to their enemies and
for that reason, they have been threatening to kill him. “My
late son was invited to the party by Ipodo’s brother. He
never knew it was an invitation of death, as it was a
deliberate plan to kill him. They have been telling people
that they will kill him and now they have carried out their
threat. All we want is for justice to be done.”
When contacted, spokesperson for Lagos State Police
Command, Dolapo Badmus, a Superintendent of Police,
said: “I can confirm that at about 8p.m., one Kehinde Lawal
allegedly stabbed one Mutiu Edunjobi on his neck with a
knife during a fight at Edum compound, Isheri. “Edunjobi
was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he died. The corpse
was deposited at the Lagos State University Teaching
Hospital, LASUTH, Ikeja for autopsy. Meanwhile, efforts
are on to arrest the suspect
