Police arrest two suspected cultists in Lagos


The Lagos State Police Command says it has arrested two suspected members of Eiye confraternity who were allegedly on a revenge mission over the death of one of their own.

The Command’s spokesperson, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed this to newsmen on Wednesday in Lagos.

Hundeyin said that the suspects, (names withheld), were arrested before they would execute their plans of killing some members of their rival group, Aiye Confraternity.

He said that the suspects were arrested at Mushin Bus Stop by Olosan police operatives, Mushin, with one locally made pistol.

He said that they allegedly confessed to being members of Eiye confraternity, terrorising Abattoirs in Agege area.

The image maker said that the suspects confessed further that the gun was purchased at Mushin for the purpose of avenging the death of one of their members, who was killed by Aiye members in Abattoir, Agege.

Hundeyin said that the arrest of the suspects saved the area from another crisis as there would have been another bloody clash between the two rival groups.

He warned that the police would not tolerate any form of cult activities in the state.

He added that those who want to practice any kind of violence should either relocate from Lagos or risk the wrath of the command
