Eyewitnesses said the cultists numbering five and aged between 23 and 28 years old rained bullets on his body to confirm his death.

An eyewitness said the deceased was accosted by the suspects at the busy Aroma Junction.

He said, “The boys came by foot, they met him at Aroma, and one of them shot at him before he fell. All the five boys started shooting at him simultaneously, riddling his body with bullets, before they walked away.

“Taders, motorists scampered for safety in various directions, while the assailants pocketed their pistol and walked away with their faces not hooded.”

Another source, a food vendor at the scene said the deceased, a “very crazy guy” in the area was in his shop about an hour ago, where he ate food before leaving, and was felled less than an hour after.

The corpse was immediately removed from the junction by police operatives who stormed the scene shortly after the incident.
