"The suspects, Adekoya Adesina, Ayinde Olumide, Adebayo Jamiu, Ajayi Temitope, Taiwo Olatunji, Oladapo Ayeye, Johnson Adeyemi, Tunde Banjo, Gbenga Morufu and Tunde Adenuga were arrested following information received by men of Anti cultists section, that a group of cultists were converging at different locations in Odogbolu in order to unleash terror in Shagamu in continuation of the supremacy battle going on amongst the various cult groups in Shagamu and its environs. 

"Upon the information, the anti-cultist team mobilised and moved to the area.

"On sighting the policemen, the hoodlums attacked them with dangerous weapons but they were subdued by the policemen after which ten amongst the cultists were apprehended.

"The 2i/c of the unit, SP Morakinyo Adejumo was seriously injured during the operation, and he was rushed to hospital where he is responding to treatment.
