The suspects who are members of the Eiye Confraternity were arrested on Friday during the initiation of new members at their hideout in Agbowa area of Ogijo, Shagamu Local Government Area.
Their arrest, according to a statement by the Command’s Spokesman, Mr. Abimbola Oyeyemi, was in continuation of the Command’s war against cultism and other violent crime in the State.
Explaining how the suspects were arrested, Oyeyemi, said, “The DPO Ogijo division, Muhammed Suleman Baba, while leading his men of OPERATION PUFF ADDER on routine patrol got information about the hideout of the cult group where they usually initiate new members and the place was subsequently stormed and three members of the group were arrested.
“The suspects who have all confessed their membership of Eiye confraternity are, Olagboye Abidemi, Olasemojo Michael and Wasiu Waheed.
“Items recovered from them are, one jack knife, one blood stained silver knife, one female pants tied with charms and other assorted charms.
“Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, Bashir Makama has ordered the transfer of the suspects to Anti kidnapping/cultists section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for discreet investigation.
“The Commissioner, therefore warned that the State would no longer be conducive for any violent groups as the Command would be taking the battle to their doorstep.”
