Four suspected Eiye cult members were arrested by police in Ogun State on Tuesday.
They were apprehended while meeting late at night “in preparation for an attack on members of another cult group.”
The suspects are Oriyomi Bankole (a.k.a Ortom), Odedina Sodiq, Shofola Ayodeji, and Adelawa Ayo, according to the Ogun State police spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi.
They were apprehended at various locations in Oke-Lantoro and the technical college in Leme, according to Oyeyemi.
According to Oyeyemi, their arrest came after the police received credible information about their meeting and the plan to launch an attack after it.
The State Commissioner of Police, CP Lanre Bankole, had ordered the anti-cultists section, led by CSP Shobiyi Oluwatoshin, to dislodge the hoodlums.
“In accordance with the CP’S order, the team arrived at the scene around 8:30 p.m., where four hoodlums were apprehended while others managed to flee,” Oyeyemi said.
Cutlasses, a battle axe, and criminal charms were recovered from the suspects, according to him.
Meanwhile, Ogun residents have been assured by the CP that “the command will not relent in its efforts to rid the state of criminal elements.”
