The suspects, Olusegun Owoola (26) Gbenga Akinkade (34), Jinadu Waliu (30) and Sanni Hammed (27), were arrested following a distress call received by the Divisional Police Headquarters, Atan Ota.

The police spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, on Sunday told newsmen in Abeokuta that following the distress call, the DPO mobilised his men to the scene where they met the two groups engaging themselves in serious gun battle.

The policemen engaged the hoodlums and subsequently subdued them, at the end of which four amongst the cultists were apprehended, he said.
