Gang-related killing is on the rise in the Ajah axis of Lagos State.

Only recently a land grabber was killed in Onosa, Ibeju Lekki, Lagos state in what was described as a reprisal attack. Another case saw a man beheaded just close to Ajiwe Police Station in Ajah.

A most recent case is that of Juliet Oduntan, daughter of Idris Oduntan whose remains was dumped by the roadside. Allegedly killed by a gang said to be threatening her brother, Ahmed Olalekan Oduntan, the young lady was returning from a visit to her friend when she was attacked and killed.

In a neighborhood dominated by cyber fraudsters, Independent learnt that trouble started when Ahmed, Juliet’s brother was blackmailed to open a TD account using details from an identity card bearing another name but his passport photograph.

According to his blackmailers, failure to comply would lead to the kidnap and murder of his sister and then his father.

Knowing that such an act was unlawful in his base in Canada, Ahmed refused his blackmailers hoping that he would find a solution to the problem.

However, it was with shock that he was informed by his dad that his sister was killed by a gang on 15, August , 2018, and that a letter had been sent to their house that he was next.

To avoid his father being killed by the gang, a frightened Ahmed tried to open the account but was interrogated by the bank officials and the enforcement officials who advised him to tell his father to report the case to the Nigerian police Juliet’s’ killers to book.  The father reported the case to the Nigerian Police Station, they got every details from him and immediately swing into action and began to carry out their necessary investigations which eventually led to the capture and arrest of two members of the gangs whom were involved in the criminal and murder act of the Juliet.
