The police spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the arrest in a statement on Sunday in Abeokuta. 

The suspects are Rafiu Osokoya, aka Osama, Azeez Abiola aka Scofield, Ogunsanwo Waheed aka 50cent, Toheeb Ayodele aka Emir, Kolawole Adegbenro and Azeez Taiwo.

He said they were arrested following information received by the CSP Shobiyi Oluwatoshin-led anti-cultism unit that the hoodlums were holding a nocturnal meeting along Ayepe/Odogbolu area on how to unleash another round of terror in Sagamu area of the state.

He said following the hint, the team moved to the area and some of  the suspects were rounded up while others escaped.

He said, “On interrogation, the suspects confessed belonging to the dreaded Eiye cult group that has been unleashing terror in Sagamu since the beginning of this year.

“They confessed to killing one Animashaun in Sagamu and another person simply identified as Ekwe also in Sabo area of Sagamu.

“They further confessed that their group was responsible for the death of one Adigun and Elewure, both of whom were killed at Isote area of Sagamu early this year during one of their nefarious operations,” he said. 

Oyeyemi said the Commissioner of Police, CP Lanre Bankole, who commended the team for a job well done, also ordered a massive manhunt for the remaining members of the gang.

He said the CP directed that the arrested suspects be arraigned in court.
