Ogun State Police Command has arrested three suspected cult members with female underwears tied with charms in Sagamu Local Government Area of the state.
The suspects, identified as -Olagboye Abidemi, 32; Olasemojo Michael, 28; and Wasiu Waheed, 23, were said to be members of Eiye confraternity.
Disclosing the suspects’ arrest, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi said the arrest was made in continuation of the command’s war against cultism and other violent crimes.
He said, “The DPO Ogijo division, CSP Muhammed Baba, while leading his men on Operation Puff Adder on a routine patrol, got information about the hideout of the cultists where they usually initiate new members.
“The place was stormed and three members of the group were arrested.
“Recovered from them were one jackknife, one bloodstained silver knife, female underwear tied with charms and other assorted charms.”
The PPRO, however, said the Commissioner of Police, Bashir Makama, had ordered the transfer of the suspects to the Anti-Kidnapping/Anti-Cultism section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigation.
He said the commissioner warned that the state would no longer be conducive for violent groups as the command would take the battle to their doorsteps.
