As investigation commenced no visible trace of violence or clues linked to the cultist group was found. No stone was found at the scene. A case of murder is being investigated by police detectives, which doesn’t fit in the modules of operadi of the cult group.
The Lagos state police command is using this opportunity to call on LCDA, CDA chairman, traditional rulers who may be aware of residents staying in isolated areas which are no longer safe to report/identify with the police in order to stop people from dwelling in insecure areas without proper social structures
The command also wishes to inform members of the public to come forward with useful information to aid the police and not resort to jungle justice while an investigation is ongoing in order not to jeopardize the investigation that may lead to the arrest of the alleged suspects who are on the command’s watch list.
