Cult war: Poly student shot dead in Abeokuta


A student of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta, was on Tuesday shot dead in broad daylight in Ijebu Ode, Ogun State, by people suspected to be cultists.

The victim was identified as Agoro Omokoleola, whose Facebook ID is Omokoleola Cool Cash.

Sources said that the manner he was lured out of his family house and killed, suggests that the operation was carried out by suspected rival cult group.

The motive for the dastardly act could not be ascertained as at the time of filing this report, but one of the sources said that the incident has been reported to the police.

Family sources disclosed that Omokoleola was invited from his home through a phone call he received at about 12 noon on Tuesday.

Unknown to him, the phone call was a bait for him to come out of his home.

On getting to where his killers made the call asking him to meet with some of his friends, he was shot in the head and his attackers escaped.

The assailants went away with his phone after shooting him apparently to prevent the victim’s relatives from discovering the identity of the caller who lured him out of home.

Family sources said further that he was preparing to take his breakfast when the call came and by the tone of his response, the caller was a familiar person to the deceased.

It was gathered that passers-by who knew his parents reported the incident to them and by the time his parents and relatives arrived the scene of the attack, he was still breathing and was rushed to the Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital, OOUTH, Sagamu where he later died.
