Cultism: DSS Nabs Ogun Legislator, Six Others

DSS Issues Security Alert

The Department of State Service (DSS) is currently interrogating a member of the Ogun State House of Assembly, Damilare Bello Mohammed for alleged cultism.

According to reports available to AllNews Nigeria, he is currently in the custody of the secret police with six others.

It was gathered that security operatives on Wednesday tracked six suspected cultists, allegedly involved in the violence that erupted in Sagamu at the weekend to the official residence of Mohammed. 

Mohammed is the member representing Sagamu State Constituency 1, and he is alleged to have provided shelter to the fleeing cultists.

A team of security operatives, in a sting operation after a tip-off, arrested the suspects in the premises of the lawmaker.

Those arrested, according to sources, include Damilare Bello Mohammed aka DRE, Debbo Animashaun, Bamidele Saheed, Ismaila Onitire, Adewale Otesanya and Tobi Owoade.

Sources revealed that many dangerous weapons, including guns, were recovered from the suspects.

Bello, early in the year, was arrested by the DSS for masterminding the violent protest that took place in February this year in Sagamu over the naira redesign policy by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

During the protest, irate youths vandalised about 10 banks and other public infrastructures. 

Sagamu town in Sagamu local government had been embroiled in a cult clash among rival groups which led to several loss of lives.
