In continuation of its clampdown on cultists and other criminals across the state, operatives of Ogun State Police Command have arrested four members of the dreaded Eiye cult group, where they were holding nocturnal meeting in preparation for an attack on members of another cult group.

The four suspects namely: Oriyomi Bankole a.k.a Ortom, Odedina Sodiq, Shofola Ayodeji and Adelawa Ayo , were arrested at different locations in Oke lantoro and Technical College Leme, following a credible information received by the police that the suspects were meeting in those locations, planning to launch an attack after their meeting.

Acting on the information, the Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, ordered the anti cultists section of the command led by Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP) Shobiyi Oluwatoshin to storm the place and dislodge the hoodlums.

The Guardian learnt that in compliance with the order, the team moved to the scene at about 8:30 p.m., where four hoodlums were arrested, while others escaped.

Recovered from them are: cutlass, battle axes and charms.

MEANWHILE, the Commissioner of Police has assured residents that the Command will not relent in its efforts to rid the state of criminal elements, masquerading as cultists.

He appealed to the public to partner with the police in waging war against criminals by informing the police whenever strange gathering is noticed in their vicinity.
