A notorious serial killer and gang leader who has been terrorising the Shomolu and Bariga areas of Lagos State, Ibrahim Oriyomi Balogun, popularly known as Small Jpron, has reportedly been killed in a bloody clash between his cult group and another rival gang on Wednesday, October 17.
It was gathered that Small Jpron who was last year arrested for a series of killing and sent to jail, managed to secure a bail for himself and went back to his old ways, leading his cult group to continue in his reign of terror until nemesis finally caught up with him and he was sent packing the way he did to others.
According to eyewitnesses, Jpron who was the leader of Eiye cult group was reportedly killed in retaliation of the killing of one Solomon who was said to be a staunch member of the Aiye cult.
Jpron was said to have allegedly supervised the killing of Solomon in Shomolu and in retaliation, the Aiye cult gang went after him and macheted him to death in the most gory manner.
Those who know him say that before his demise, Jpron had been arrested at least four times in the past on allegations of murder and cult-related activities.
In 2016, he was arraigned in a court for murder, possession of firearms and for belonging to a cult group. Shortly after his arrest in 2016, he reportedly escaped from police custody and surfaced in public again, boasting that no one can arrest him.
When he was paraded before journalists in 2016, Jpron had confessed to being involved in the killing of three persons.
He had confessed:
“I am an Eiye cult leader. I joined the cult in 2009. The reason for my joining was to avenge the death of a close friend, Sunday Folorunsho, aka Small Biscuit. It was the Aiye cult members who killed him.
So, the Eiye faction approached me and said I should join them. They said they would help me to fish out the people who killed my friend. I have killed three persons, among are Femi Wiper and Lekan Akon.”
