Police nab four suspected cultists in Ogun
The Ogun State police command has arrested four members of the dreaded Eiye confraternity in Iwesi area of Ijebu-Ode while planning to carry out a violent attack in the area.
According the Ogun State police spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, the arrest was sequel to information received by the command that the cult group were holding meeting in a hideout at Iwesi.
“On receiving the information, the Commissioner of Police, CP Bashir Makama, gave a marching order to the officer in-charge of Special Anti-robbery Squad (SARS), CSP Tijani Mohammed, to move into the area in order to nip in the bud the planned attack.
“In compliance with the CP’s directive, a team of SARS stormed the hideout where four members of the group, namely Tunde Olabinjo, 22; Raheem Ibrahim, 28; Tawaq Azeez, 31; and Bisoye Ajayi were apprehended.
“Recovered from them are one cut-to-size single-barrel gun, one locally-made pistol and one battle axe. The suspects have all confessed to being members of the deadly Eiye cult group and that they were planning to launch an attack on a rival cult group within Ijebu-Ode before they were arrested”.
Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police has ordered a serious manhunt for the rest members of the group with the view to bring them to justice.
