Twelve suspects have been arrested by the Lagos State police command on the heels of the clash between rival groups suspected to be cultists in the Aguda area of Surulere on Sunday.

The Public Relations Officer of the Police Command in Lagos State, CSP, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, made this known in a statement he issued on Sunday.

According to Adejobi, one Munero, a male, was killed in the Aguda incident.
