The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, Abiodun Alabi, confirmed the arrest, saying the cult war had been raging since February, 2022.

He said that on February 20, 2022, one Ayo Dada and two others were killed by a suspected rival cult gang at Ketu, Mile 12, Lagos, and that consequently one Sunday Tomoloju and other members of his cult group went on a reprisal mission.
