SUG president, one other arrested for alleged cultism



The president of the Students’ Union Government (SUG) of the Federal Polytechnic Ilaro, Adegboye Emmanuel Olatunji, and one Olarewaju Taiwo have been arrested by men of the Ogun State police command for cultism.

The duo were arrested on Sunday following an information received by the police at Ilaro division from members of the public that some group of people suspected to be cultists were sighted in a bush at Gbogidi area of Ilaro. They were trying to initiate new members into their dreaded group.

On receiving the information, the Divisional Police Officer at Ilaro, Olayemi Jacob, mobilized his patrol team and swiftly moved to the scene. The two suspects were then arrested with the assistance of members of the public while others escaped through the bush.

The two arrested cultists who are in full regalia of the dreaded black axe cult group have been taken to custody at Ilaro divisional headquarters where they are being interrogated.

However, the Commissioner of Police, Kenneth Ebrimson, has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to anti-cult section of the state criminal investigation and intelligence department for discreet investigation.
