Six suspected ritualists arrested in Ogun

Six members of a syndicate that allegedly specialised in killing people for ritual have been arrested at different locations across Ogun State.

The State Police Commissioner, Ahmed Iliyasu, while parading the suspects at the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS) office in Abeokuta, at the weekend, said they were arrested at Owode Egba area during a special manhunt.

“In our unrelenting war against crime and criminality across Ogun State, the command through technical intelligence gathering was able to burst two syndicates which specialised in killing people for the purpose of using their parts for rituals,” he said.

He said the operation started on October 5, “When a team from the Federal Special Anti-robbery Squad while on township patrol sighted two men on a motorcycle with suspicious bags, they were forcefully stopped and searched; we discovered in their bag fresh and dried human parts.

“On interrogation it was discovered that the duo were serial killers with their base at Number 6, Baase compound Totoro Abeokuta,” the commissioner said. Items recovered from the suspected ritualists included different human parts and charms. 

The police commissioner warned criminals to stay away from the state or face a tough time as the command is battle ready against any form of criminality.
