Police Arrest Suspected Cultists In Ogun

The Police Command in Ogun has arrested some suspected cultists during a special operation to checkmate the violent activities of cultists in the state.

DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi ,the command’s Public Relations Officer (PPRO) , disclosed this in a statement issued in Abeokuta on Thursday.

The PPRO stated that the rivalry between members of Aye and Eiye cult groups had left no fewer than four persons dead in Abeokuta and Itori area of the state.

Following the disturbance, he said that the Commissioner of Police (CP) Lanre Bankole had ordered a massive manhunt for members of either of the groups

Oyeyemi said that all the command’s tactical teams participated in the special operations to flush out the hoodlums.

“In the course of the operation, some suspected cultists were arrested.

“Three locally made guns were recovered from them and they have confessed to be members of Aye and Eiye confraternity,” he said.

The command’s spokesman said that the CP had ordered that the operation should continue until all the hoodlums terrorising the state were flushed out.

He also appealed to parents to call their children and wards to order, saying anyone caught fomenting trouble under any guise would be decisively dealt with.
