Two suspected cultists from Alagbado area of Lagos state on Wednesday stabbed each other to death after a little scuffle.
The two men, Owolabi Yusuf and Isiaka, had a disagreement on a yet-to-be-ascertained issue and attacked each other with knives, which eventually led to the death.
It was also gathered that before they could be separated, they had already stabbed each other with knives.
The matter was thereafter reported at the Agbado Police Dicision. A police source said the two residents were believed to be cultists.
He said, “The two of them were both notorious in the area for cult fights. The two deceased were in different cults and met on Wednesday on the road when an argument ensued between them.
“Residents would have rushed them to a hospital, but their antecedent made the people reluctant.”
The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, confirmed the incident.
She added that investigation was ongoing into the matter.
She said, “The two cult members engaged each other in a physical fight that led to their deaths. Policemen from the Alagbado division visited the scene and took photographs.
“The corpses are in a morgue where an autopsy would be conducted. Investigation is ongoing into the matter.”
