- *As fear of war envelopes Ikorodu
By James IbechiAdirahu’ Igede-elect, Chief Oga Ero has charged the Commissioner of Police in Lagos State to unravel the killers of Ijege Ike and his entire family.
The Igede royal father also wants security agents to arrest landlord of the deceased family and interrogate him for possible complicity in the gruesome annihilation of the family of five.
Acting President-General, Omi’Ny Igede, Ode Enyi, who disclosed that the royal father spoke to the Lagos police commissioner on phone, said Chief Ero was concerned that the victim was his subject.
Ijege Ike, with his wife and their three children were killed at their residence in Ikorodu area of Lagos on Tuesday by daredevil killers suspected to be members of Badoo cult.
The deceased hailed from Anchim Uje, Oju LGA of Benue State.
Police had since then been said to be investigating the incident, but no information as to whether or not any suspect had been arrested.
Leadership of Lagos branch of the apex Igede socio-cultural organization (Omi’Ny Igede) was said to have given the police ultimatum to unravel the killers.
No hint yet as to what would follow at the end of the ultimatum.
It was however said Igede people are descendants of the Great Ogbiloko the warrior, and no one kills them and go scot free, as such there was palpable fear in Ikorodu where a large population of Igede people are residents
