Fadugba, who was said to be relaxing in front of a barber’s – a stone’s throw from his residence – was shot and died on the spot. It was learnt that Akokia was ill and had gone to buy drugs from a chemist on the street.

He was returning home when a bullet hit him in the chest. A community leader, Mr. Omolaja Johnson, said the drug dealer had been unleashing terrors on the community since 2016 when he was sent out of the community.

He said the mastermind had used some policemen to harass residents, adding that a petition was sent to the Zone 2 Police Command, Onikan, against the policemen and the hoodlums.

The spokesperson for the police in Lagos, SP Chike Oti, said the command had launched a manhunt for the hoodlums. He said, “There were four individuals who were known for negatively influencing children and youths in that community.

.

.

They had issues with the community and they were chased away. They regrouped and unleashed mayhem on the community, years after they were sent out. They killed a university worker and a student.”
