The Police Command in Lagos State, on Wednesday, said it arrested 15 suspected cultists and restored normalcy to the Ikosi/Ketu area of Lagos State.

The arrest was made after a clash between some suspected cult groups, Eye, Aiye and Buccaneer confraternities.

CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, who confirmed the development in a statement on Wednesday, said the suspects were arrested with two locally-made pistols, some live cartridges, assorted charms and other items.

“Preliminary investigation revealed that the crisis was connected to the revenue generation at the Ketu fruits market.

“Efforts are in top gear to apprehend other fleeing members of the gangs that orchestrated crisis in the area,” the police spokesperson said.

Adejobi said that the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, Mr Hakeem Odumosu, had ordered that the suspects be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department (CID) Panti, Yaba, for discreet Investigation.

He said that the commissioner reiterated the command’s commitment to fighting crimes and criminality, especially cultism in the State.
