The five suspects— Bode Akinsiku, Olabanji Femi, Abiodun Ayodele, Fadairo Wahab and Adedayo Adebayo— allegedly lured the two teenagers to the house of one of the suspects located at Kogbona Street, where they carried out the act.
The traditionalists, which also included women, chased out residents in the houses and used palm fronds to barricade the entrance to the houses.
