Operatives of the Ogun State Security Network, Amotekun, have arrested no fewer than 11 “notorious cultists” of both Aiye and Eiye cult groups in some parts of the state.

The suspects were said to be involved in cult clashes leading to the death of a number of people in Sagamu, Ijebu-Ode and Ijebu-Igbo.

The Amotekun Commander in the state, David Akinremi, disclosed this on Tuesday in a statement in Abeokuta, the state capital.

He said the men were also involved in robbery activities, while dealing with illicit drugs (like tramadol, SK, Loud, Ice, etc), including weeds suspected to be Indian hemp.

Akinremi said: “It will be recalled that our major towns have in recent times witnessed all forms of cult-related killings, gangsterism and disturbance of public peace.

“These criminal elements perpetrating the dastardly acts in the name of supremacy war have caused so much apprehension to the peace-loving residents of the state with Abeokuta metropolis, Sagamu, Ijebu-Ode, Ijebu-Igbo being the most affected.

“However, the Amotekun Corps is taking the war to their doorsteps with a view to checkmating activities of these criminal elements.”
