The Lagos State Police Command has arrested two suspected cult members over the murder of one Adebola Olarape.
The suspects whose names were given as Saheed Araba and Femi Omolajau were alleged to have shot the 24-year-old Adebola in front of his family house at No. 11 Ijede Street, Igbe Kapo, Ikorodu on Wednesday January 4 2017 at about 4:05 pm.
Brother to the deceased, Sunday Olaifa, who heard the gunshot had rushed out to find Adebola in a pool of his own blood.
Olaifa was said to have made a distress call to the Ijede police division that his brother who works as a stylist in a barbing saloon opposite Ijede Palace was shot dead by unknown assailants.
