Operatives of the Ogun Police Command on Wednesday arrested six suspected members of cult groups in the Odogbolu area of the state, where they reportedly clashed over transaction of a locally made pistol.

The suspects are Aboyeji Oluwadamilare of Isiwu Ikorodu; Adebiyi Mathew of Aleke Ikorodu; Jacob Solomon of Aleke Ikorodu; Iliasu Jubril of Isiwu Ikorodu; Olubanjo Segun of Odo Iselu Odogbolu and Samuel Olaniyan of Odo-Iselu Odogbolu.

The police spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, on Wednesday, in Abeokuta, told journalists that investigation revealed that the Ikorodu-based suspects contracted one Samuel Olaniyan to purchase a locally made pistol for them.

Oyeyemi said when the gun was delivered to them, it was discovered that the pistol “is not serviceable.”

According to him, they (suspects) came with full force to deal with the Odogbolu-based cultists for betraying their trust.

“While the pandemonium was going on, a distress call was made to Odogbolu division, consequent upon which the DPO, SP Awoniyi Adekunle, quickly led his men to the scene where the six suspects were apprehended,” Oyeyemi said.

He said one locally-made pistol and two live cartridges were recovered from them.

Oyeyemi said the Commissioner of Police, CP Edward Ajogun, directed that the suspects and exhibits be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for discreet investigation with a view to charging them to court upon conclusion of the investigation.
