It was a black Easter in the Ijeun Tuntun area of Abeokuta, Ogun State capital, as some suspected cultists who reportedly came on motorcycles shot dead one Olumide Ifeoluwa, popularly called Tescom.

A resident of the area, who spoke to newsmen on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the incident, said Olumide, an alleged member of Aiye, a notorious cult group, was murdered at a car wash in the area where he used to stay and relax in the evening.

He was said to have been in the company of some people when his assailant swooped on him and shot him in the head.

“The whole thing happened at around 6 p.m. Tescom, as he was fondly called, was at the car wash. I think he was always there in the evening to relax with some of his friends.

“We heard that those who shot him dead came on motorcycles, and they just went after him and shot him in the head. The incident really brought fear to the people as they took to their heels because nobody wanted to be caught up in the crisis.

“Although those who shot him dead had bolted immediately, people were afraid that the deceased’s group might come for a reprisal attack.

“The police from Ibara Divisional Headquarters came at about 9 p.m. to evacuate his corpse. It is really disturbing and sad,” the source said.

The State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Omolola Odutola, confirmed the incident.

She said, “One Olumide Danish Ifeloluwa ‘Tescom’ was shot in the head by unidentified gunmen in a ash colour corolla with no registration number at Somefun, Ijeun Tuntun, today at 9:55 hrs. Dr. has confirmed one Danisa dead”.
