It was a very unfortunate day for the residents of Ipakodo, Ikorodu area of Lagos State yesterday after unknown gunmen attacked a house, killing a man and his two sons while others sustained injury.

The decease identified as Celestine Nwokoye, and his sons were shot dead while the wife and his two daughters who were also shot are between life and death at the Ikorodu General Hospital.

A resident of Ebute,who spoke under anonymity said the unknown hoodlums were suspected assassins.

In his words, “The man’s house is located on Agbose Street, off Oluodo Junction. He worked at a taxi park in the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja. The killers came on Thursday morning. They shot him and all the members of his family. He and two male children died instantly, while they left his wife and the two daughters with bullet injuries.

“The attackers were not robbers; they went to only the man’s apartment. I was told that they did not take away any property. That is why everyone suspects that the killers were sent. They shot all members of his family presumably, so that no one would be able to report to the police.

“But policemen from the Ipakodo division later came to our area to take photographs and remove the bodies. The policemen were all over our area.”

A landlord from the area by the name Abimbola said the suspects could be the dreaded terrorist in the area popularly known as Badoo.

 “A week ago, a man and his child were attacked and stabbed to death in the Oke-Awori community in the Ibeshe area. Armed rapists, known as Badoo, attacked the man and his child. They stabbed them to death. So, I suspect the attackers of Nwokoye could be Badoo. The police have a lot of work to do in our area,” he added.
The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, who confirmed the deaths, added that command had got some leads on the incident, and investigation was ongoing.
