In Ogun, 11 accused cultists have been detained for the murder of three members of a rival.
The Ogun Police Command has detained 11 accused cultists in connection with the alleged assassination of three members of a rival gang.

The suspects are members of the Eiye confraternity organisation who were allegedly involved in the recent cult clash in Abeokuta that claimed two lives, according to the command's spokesperson, Abimbola Oyeyemi, who revealed this in a statement on Sunday, May 29.

On Friday, March 25, one of the victims, Olaosebikan Tejuosho, was killed by the accused in the Isale Abetu neighbourhood.

Quadri Ogunsanya, Jamiu Kehinde, Adenekan Samuel, Waris Ismail, Olamilekan Hamsat, Bamidele Waliu, Makinde Azeez, Makinde Ifajimin, Makinde Fashakin, Makinde Faleke, and Ajeifa Arifasope are the suspects in this case.

According to the PPRO, the suspects were apprehended in Abeokuta's Itoku neighbourhood after credible information was received by the command's anti-cult section that cultists involved in a series of bloody cult confrontations within the metropolis were plotting another assault.

"Upon getting the information, CSP Shobiyi Oluwatoshin, the officer in command of the anti-cultism unit, mobilised his troops and moved to the area where 11 members of the group were caught," according to the PPRO.

"The accused confessed to being members of the infamous Eiye cult during interrogation. They admitted to being involved in a series of cult conflicts, one of which resulted in the death of one Olaosebikan Tejuosho on March 25, 2022, in the Isale Abetu neighbourhood of Abeokuta " 

They also admitted to killing one Habib Mego and another individual, known as School kid (actual name unknown) in Abeokuta's Omida neighbourhood on the same day," Oyeyemi stated.

He went on to say that the commissioner of police, Lanre Bankole, has ordered a complete inquiry into the suspects' conduct.

Other members of the organisation were also to be tracked down and brought to justice, according to the CP.

The police chief promised that the ongoing crackdown on cultists would be intensified until the state was free of the hoodlums terrorising the populace.
