Recall that last year, a manhunt was launched for cultists suspected of killing their leader in the Bariga area of Lagos state.

The slain leader, popularly known as Major, is said to be behind the initiation of Eiye boys in Shomolu and Bariga areas of the state, New Telegraph reports. He was described as a fearless leader and a terror in his community and to other rival cult groups. He was eventually killed, allegedly by his fellow Eiye cultists, while he slept at his home in Taiwo off Rashida Kotun Street Idiaba, Bariga, Lagos, in August.

A source who requested anonymity told New telegraph that his assailants sneaked into his house and stabbed Major in the chest and other parts of his body, adding that they knew that was the only way they could attack and kill him. Policemen attached to the Bariga Police Station Lagos State police command have begun search for the suspects and have reportedly compiled names of suspects in connection with the crime, sources revealed the police had declared 11 persons wanted over the murder.

Major’s killing came barely 24 hours after the newly sworn in Chairman Shomolu Local Government Mr Abdul-Hammed Salawu popularly known as Dullar had a peace talk at the traditional ruler’s palace. His murder punctured the relative peace in the community.
