Two brothers, Malik and Mufu Akewusola, were shot dead in front of their home on Akerele Street, Shitta area of Surulere, Lagos on Thursday evening by gunmen suspected to be cultists.
An eyewitness told Saturday PUNCH that a pregnant woman was hit by a stray bullet during the incident, which caused pandemonium in the area.
The brothers were said to be relaxing in front of their house when a gang stormed the place around 8 pm and shot at them multiple times.
The eyewitness told our correspondent that everybody in the area scampered to safety when the shooting started.
He put the ages of the brothers at between 25 and 28.
“We came back after the gang left and found the brothers in a pool of their blood. We don’t really know how many the shooters were or who they were. Immediately we heard the shooting, everybody around ran away. The woman was selling soft drinks in front of the house when she was hit,” he said.
