Cultist shot dead after raping woman with 5-month-old pregnancy
The remains of Lawal were deposited in the mortuary of the Isolo General Hospital. Lawal was reported to be a member of the Eiye cult group terrorising the community.
Lawal, 23, reportedly met his death in the evening of Tuesday, September 3, 2013. However, earlier in the afternoon of that fateful day around Abeule-Ijesha area, Lawal popularly called Ogbon and another cult member identified as Para Alabi had accosted a five month pregnant woman and raped her.
After raping the pregnant woman, Lawal and Alabi, though heavily drunk, reportedly headed to meet his gang at their pub close by. But unknown to them, another rival cult group had clashed with his own group some hours before then and the other group had threatened to return later with more terror.
That was exactly what they did. It was reported that barely an hour after Lawal and his partner-in-crime arrived at the beer pub, about 12 members of the rival cult group arrived in a big bus.
Lawal was said to have confronted the leader of the rival group. When Lawal wanted to engage the leader of the opposing group in the fight, he was shot twice in his chest.
