A suspected cultist has been arrested by the police while trying to disrupt an ongoing examination in a polytechnic owned by the Ogun State Government at Igbesa.

According to the State’s Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, the suspect, identified as Ojo Akinola Iyanu, a member of the Aiye confraternity, was nabbed with a bag containing one locally-made pistol loaded with one live cartridge.

Oyeyemi disclosed that Iyanu was nabbed Tuesday at the Ogun State Institute of Technology, Igbesa, following credible intelligence that some cultists had planned to disrupt the polytechnic’s examination, which he said was rescheduled after resolving a crisis between the students’ union and the school management.

He said that the student cultists, who did not prepare for the examination, had “enacted plan to ensure that the examination did not take place.”

To prevent a breakdown of law in the polytechnic, the DPO of Igbesa, SP Abayomi Adeniji, in collaboration with other security agencies, were said to have engaged in proper screening of all students before entering the examination hall right from the main gate.

As the screening was going on, Oyeyemi explained that the suspect and one other person later identified as Aloma, were intercepted with a black bag.

“While searching the bag, the second boy took to his heels, while Ojo Akinola Iyanu was quickly arrested,” Oyeyemi added.

He said the suspect confessed during interrogation that he was “a member of the dreaded Aiye confraternity.”

The police spokesman quoted Iyanu as saying his group had decided “to disrupt the examination because it came suddenly and met them unprepared.”

In his reaction, the Ogun State Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, ordered that the suspect be transferred to the State CIID at the police headquarters, Eleweran, Abeokuta for discreet investigation, asking that other members of the group should be hunted for and brought to book.
