Ekiti State Police Command have arrested eight suspected cult members by the Rapid Response Squad in the state.

 The state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Sunday Abutu, said the command received a distress call that some suspected cult members from the Buccaneer Confraternity and Alora Sea Lord groups were conducting themselves in a manner that could cause a breach of peace on the campus of Ekiti State University on May 7 at about 18:00 hours.

 The suspects are Onifade Joshua Akinsola (400L Political Science), Olatunde David (400L Computer Science), Omoboyowa Olabode (400L Political Science), Daniel Oluwagbenga (300L Accounting), Adeleke Tolani (300L Sociology), Andrew Ochuko (300L Sociology), Bamiduro Ahmed Olawale (Carryover Student of Political Science), Adelakun Omoniyi (2023 graduate).

 Abutu said during the operation, some of the fleeing gang members fired gunshots at the Armoured Personnel Carrier (APC) conveying the RRS operatives and damaging their windscreen.

 The PPRO added that efforts were in progress to arrest them and recover the weapons in their possession.

 Abutu said exhibits recovered from the arrested suspects are two yellow face caps with Buccaneer Confraternity and Alora Sea Lord secret Cult Logo and an inscription that reads: “Santa Barbara Love Victory And Perfection.”
