The Lekki Estates Residents and Stakeholders Association (LERSA) has strongly condemned the killing of four persons in the Ajah area following a violent clash between rival cult groups.
In a communique released on 15 April, the Association expressed shock over the killings which took place in an area known to be relatively peaceful.
LERSA, which membership includes residents and stakeholders living in at least 77 estates from 1004 to Epe, called on security agencies especially the Police to do everything possible to fish out the perpetrators and bring them to justice.
The Association also expressed their condolences to the families of the victims and reassured that they will continue to work with and collaborate with security agencies and other stakeholders to ensure that peace and security reign in the area all times.
Following the incident, the Police has revealed that two persons have been arrested in connection with the violent clash. The Area J Command of the Force located in Ajah Lagos said it was also on the trail of the suspects.
The Police also said peace and calm has returned to the area and urged residents to go about their daily affairs without fear as more police patrols have been deployed to the Ajah area and Lekki in general to maintain law and order.
