The suspects were identified as Gbenga Fransisco Olanrenwaju, aka Gbengene, 40; Asokere Segun, aka Seriki ‘m’ ,36; Adediran Ibrahim, aka Kush, 23; and Jimoh Sodiq, aka Irawo, 27.

Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, who confirmed the arrest, said the suspects were members of rival cult groups.

He stated that they were nabbed over their nefarious and criminal activities plaguing the Badagry area of Lagos State. 

“The arrest of the suspects followed a painstaking weeks-long investigation into incessant complaints of cult-related disturbances and killings in Badagry,” Hundeyin said.

He added, “The suspects were arrested in various parts of Badagry Lagos State in an operation that lasted days. Preliminary investigation reveals that the suspects belong to Eiye and Aiye confraternities.

“The suspects would be arraigned at the conclusion of a more comprehensive investigation.”

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Abiodun Alabi, assured Lagosians that the Command would continue to combat cultism and related crimes towards ensuring lasting peace in the state.
