CITIZENS COMPASS– RESIDENTS of Baiyeku in Igbogbo/Baiyeku, Ikorodu Division are currently living in fear of the unknown following the reported killing of a youth by some suspected cultists.
The victim was reportedly slain on the night of Friday, August 12, 2022.
The victim was said to be asleep with two others when his assailants came calling.
It was learnt that the assailants came in three boats through Ajah waterways in search of some of their members in Baiyeku.
However, when the mission could not be accomplished, they branched at a nearby house to vent their anger on the victim.
