Following a bloody cult clash between two rival groups which left one person dead on Wednesday night, eight principal suspects who are members of Aiye and Eiye confraternity have been arrested by men of Ogun State Police Command.
The suspects were picked up at their hideout where they were holding meeting in preparation for another deadly clash.
Immediately the report of the clash got to the notice of the CP Ahmed Iliyasu, he directed the Special Units of the Command such as FSARS and Anti-Cultist/Kidnapping sections to move in and bring the hoodlums to Justice.
In compliance with the CP’s directive, the officer-in-charge of FSARS DSP Uba Adam swung into action, and embarked on technical intelligence based investigation.
Their efforts paid off when the hideout of the hoodlums was discovered.
They stormed the place and got eight of them arrested with various types of dangerous arms and ammunition.
The arrested cultists are: Muyiwa Talabi ‘m’, Tunde Adeyemi ‘m’, Korede Pariosho ‘m’, Dayo Johnson ‘m’, Segun Saka ‘m’, Niyi Adeshina ‘m’, Micheal Oluwaseun ‘m’, and Afolabi Ismail ‘m’. It was discovered that the duo of Muyiwa Talabi and Niyi Adeshina who are strong members of Aye group were the ones who hacked the victim of Wednesday clash to death.
Their co-accomplice who also played prominent role was traced to his house by the rival group and hacked to death early this morning before Police got to his house for the purpose of arresting him.
