Several killed as militants invade Lagos community

15 July 2016, 12:06

Lagos - Suspected militants invaded Igbolomu in Ikorodu, a Lagos State suburb, kidnapping and killing several residents, Eagleonline reports.

The attack was said to have witnessed heavy shooting by the militants.

Sources said the decision to invade the town by the militants was sequel to the raid carried out by the police on Monday and Tuesday on their hideouts.

This followed Sunday’s alleged kidnappings and killings in the area.

The gunmen were said to have arrived in the town at about 3pm on Thursday, wearing masks and heavily armed.

Operatives of the Lagos State security outfit, the Rapid Response Squad, later arrived and engaged the gunmen in a fierce battle.

News24 previously reported 13 people were feared dead, Friday, during two separate attacks by suspected militants who invaded Elepete community in Igbo-Olomu, Agric area of Ikorodu in Lagos state.

It was gathered that 10 of the victims were killed Thursday night, while the remaining were killed at about 10am.

The first incident occurred at Ola-Imam area of Elepete when the militants allegedly engaged some security volunteers in a battle while the second incident occurred at Phase 1 area.
