The state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi said the suspects also confessed being responsible for the killing of one Habib Mego and one other person simply known as School boy (real name unknown) at Omida area of Abeokuta all on the same day.

Others are Makinde Azeez, Makinde Ifajimin, Makinde Fashakin, Makinde Faleke and Ajeifa Arifasope who he said were all arrested at Itoku area of Abeokuta metropolis.

He explained that their arrest followed a credible information received by the anti- cultists section of the command that, the cultists who are said to have been involved in series of bloody cult clashes within the metropolis were planning another onslaught at Itoku area.

Acting on the information, he said the officer in-charge anti-cultists unit, CSP Shobiyi Oluwatoshin mobilized his men and moved to the area where eleven members of the group were apprehended.

During interrogation, Oyeyemi added that the suspects “confessed being members of the dreaded Eiye cult group, and their involvement in series of cult clashes one of which led to the killing of one Olaosebikan Tejuosho at Isale Abetu area of Abeokuta on the 25th of March 2022.

 

 

“They also confessed been responsible for the killing of one Habib Mego and one other person simply known as School boy (real name unknown) at Omida area of Abeokuta all on the same day.”

Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police,  Lanre Bankole, has ordered a full scale investigation into the past activities of the suspects. He also directed that other members of the group must be hunted for and brought to book.

The CP therefore warned parents and guardians to call their children and wards to order as the clampdown on cultists across the state will continue until the state is rid of the hoodlums terrorizing the good people of Ogun state.
