Several suspected cult members, who belong to Black Axe, have killed the Financial Secretary of the National Union of Road Transports Workers in Mushin.
According to the report, the deceased, Taiye Monsuru, aka Sempe, was killed shortly after leaving his base at the old tollgate, Mushin on Friday.
The source, a friend of the deceased, said, “Taiye left his base at the old tollgate Mushin, where he is the financial secretary of a unit. At about 9:30pm he left the toll gate at Mushin railway line on a motorcycle and headed for his home at 45 Adegboyega Street, Ilupeju.
“On getting to the junction of his house, he dismounted from the bike and about 10 men, who had been lurking around, accosted him and shot him repeatedly. After making sure he was dead, they all disappeared.”
It was gathered that some cult members had called him a day before the incident and had threatened to kill him for waging a war against Aye members. Though the deceased, 35-year-old Monsuru, was not a cultist, he had been having problems with them for a while.
The source said, “A day before the incident Monsuru received a phone call where some cultists accused him of waging a war against the Aye boys. They asked him whether he could fight against the Aye boys on his own and threatened him.
“For some time he had been having problems with the cultists who felt cheated in the scheme of things as they claimed they were not given juicy posts even though they deserved it. They wondered why Monsuru, who was not a cult member, would be made financial secretary.”
Monsuru's friends named his killers as Lanre Pumping, 50 Cent, Wale Touch, SARS Adigun, among others.
The cult war in Somolu, Mushin, Akoka and Bariga seems to be endless war as cult members continue to kill on a weekly basis.
The spokesperson for state police command, Ngozi Braide, during a phone call said she would call back with further information. However, there is no information from her yet.
