Graphic: Dreaded Eiye Cult Leader Butchered to Death By Rival Cultists In Lagos

There was pandemonium in Abesan Federal Housing Estate, Ipaja in the Alimosho axis of Lagos yesterday, Tuesday, October 25, 2016, after suspected cultists wreaked havoc in the area.

During the attack, a man identified simply as Bebo, was butchered to death when dozens of cultists stormed the area on motorcycles.

The gang specifically came to hunt for Bebo after trailing him to that area.


According to an eyewitness: "he is popularly known as Bebo in the area. He visited a pharmacy to get drugs before he was hit unaware. The guys who attacked him outnumbered him and he couldn’t escape the scene.”

Bebo was formerly a student of the University of Lagos before he dropped out.

The witness added: “He is feared in the area because he is a member of the Eiye Confraternity. He was the second in command while at Unilag and also held the same position in Abesan before he was killed yesterday night.”

Another resident who spoke on condition of anonymity said that “he was killed at Greenland Bus stop after stepping out of the drug store. The cultists blocked him while he tried to run and immediately took turns in inflicting cuts on him before he died.”
