Tears Flow as Murdered Man, Wife, Son Are Buried in Lagos

Emotions ran high yesterday at Ibeshe Titun, Ikorodu, Lagos, as three family members who were murdered by some assailants, were buried.

The late couple, Mr. Lucky Ebhodaghe and Mrs. Margaret Ebhodaghe, and their son, Jonathan, were buried in their house around 12pm amid tears.

Residents and members of the Deeper Life Bible Church, where the husband was a member of the prayer team and the wife, a worker in the ushering section, could not hide their grief.

Recall that 15-year-old Jonathan, the only child of the family, was participating in the ongoing West African Secondary School Certificate Examination when the incident happened.

It was reported that the assailants tore the window net and cut some burglar-proof bars to gain access into the house late Monday night.

The suspects were said to have inflicted machete cuts on the family members, leaving them for dead.

Their neighbours were not aware of the incident until the next day, when Jonathan’s friends and a teacher visited the house to know why he was not in school for his exams.

The visitors reportedly met the house locked and peeped through the window, from where they saw the victims in a pool of blood.

The wife, Margaret was alleged to have been r*ped by the assailants before she was killed.

According to Punch, some residents who identified the killers as members of the Badoo cult, said the gang had killed many other residents in a similar way.
