Lagos police arrest four suspected cultist in badagry


Men of the Lagos State Police Command have arrested four members of rival cult groups over nefarious and criminal activities.

They were said to have been nabbed in the Badagry area of the state for plaguing members of the community.

This was disclosed in a statement by the state police spokesperson, Benjamin Hundeyin.

Hundeyin noted that the arrest of the suspects followed a painstaking week-long investigation into incessant complaints of cult-related disturbances and killings in Badagry.

“The suspects: Gbenga Fransisco Olanrenwaju (aka Gbengene), 40; Asokere Segun (aka Seriki), 36;  Adediran Ibrahim (aka Kush), 23;  and Jimoh Sodiq (aka Irawo), 27; were arrested in various parts of Badagry Lagos State in an operation that lasted days.

“Preliminary investigation reveals that the suspects belong to eiye and aiye confraternities. Suspects would be arraigned at the conclusion of a more comprehensive investigation.

“The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi, has assured Lagosians that the command will continue to combat cultism and related crimes towards ensuring lasting peace in the state,” the statement read in part.
