Update: 70 persons arrested in connection with Damoche’s Death

No fewer than 70 persons have been arrested by the Lagos State Police command in connection with the death of Olaniyan Damilola a.k.a Damino Damoche.

It will be recalled that Damino a fast rising hip hop act, who was a 400 level student of the Lagos State University, LASU, was murdered in cold blood last Thursday by suspected cultists.

It was gathered that the arrest was made by a combined team of the Area E police command who paraded the streets of Ojo, Iba, PPL, Igbo-Elerin, Igando, Okokomaiko, Iyana-Isashi and Onireke communities to fish out those involved in the clash.

Meanwhile, some pictures of corpses suspected to be students of the Lagos State University went viral on the Internet on Saturday, heightening tension in the school and its environs.

Consequently, students of the institution have expressed fear that some cult members might want to avenge Damoche’s death.

However, the Student Union President, Ibrahim Tunji, denied the death of more students, even as he stated that the campus is calm.

The police have transferred the arrested suspects to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad for further investigations.
