The Lagos State Police Command has confirmed the killing of one Alhaji Sulaimon Onaolapo, popularly known as Akiru, who was the leader of Mile-12 Lagos Parks and Garages.
The command’s spokesperson, SP Benjamin Hundeyin confirmed the killing on Monday.
“One Alhaji Sule was killed following the incident at Mile 12. No arrest made yet. Normalcy returned. Police officers on ground to prevent reprisals,” he said.
There was pandemonium at the Mile-12 area in Kosofe Local Government Area of Lagos state, following the killing of a member of the parks and garages, Mr Sulaimon Onaolapo.
His lifeless body was seen on the road, after he was reportedly shot by unknown gunmen suspected to be cultists, which led to pandemonium, paralysing commercial activities at the ever-busy Mile-12 food market.
Dangerous weapons were freely used, as gunshots rented the air by suspected rival cult groups, who allegedly engaged in supremacy battle as a result of the killing.
Many traders could not display their goods due to anticipated reprisals by rival groups.
