Friday, June 24, 2016 entered the lexicon in the history of Igbo Olomu, a border community between Lagos and Ogun states, when suspected pipeline vandals, said to be Ijaws, invaded the community and its environs, and killed no fewer than 20 persons in one night. The gunshots that kept the residents awake throughout the night left a torrent of tears in almost every corner of the community the following morning, as some landlords, visitors, residents and local vigilantes had been massacred.
