Armed Men Invades Ikorodu Community, Kills Many .

Unidentified heavily armed gunmen suspected to be 
militants were said to have invaded the Igbolomu and
 Ishawo areas in Ikorodu, Lagos State, yesterday. 
According to eyewitnesses who escaped from one of 
the invaded areas, the gunmen from the Niger Delta 
came through water channel and started shooting sporadically. 
Residents are already fleeing the area as eyewitnesses 
claim corpses littered the ground, adding that more could be in the swamp.
An eyewitness popularly called Iya Ibeji said there was 
series of gunshots all through the night and also early in 
the morning. 
“I heard series of gunshots while preparing Sari 
this morning. I also saw people from a nearby 
church through my window scampering for safety 
because they were doing a vigil before the chaos,” Iya Ibeji said.
Another resident who declined mentioning his name said: 
I am leaving this vicinity today. I don’t want a stray bullet to 
kill me and I don’t want these militants to invade 
my privacy and slit NY throat like they have been doing”.
Another resident, Kolawole Amodu said: ”I am staying 
here because this is where I own a land and house. 
I did not rent so I can't carry my house along.
 I will just continue to be prayerful and hopeful”.
