Two nabbed in Ogun for forcefully initiating student into cult group

The Nigeria Police Force says its investigation shows that Boko Haram, Ansaru and other terror groups are getting support from some Nigerians.

Two suspected members of the Eiye cult group were on November 19, 2021, arrested by operatives of the Ogun State Police Command for forcefully initiating a student into their group.

This was revealed by the spokesman of the Command, Abimbola Oyeyemi, in a statement, he issued on Sunday.

Oyeyemi said the suspects: Owoseni Gbemisola and Ayo Ogunsola, were arrested following a report by a 21-years-old student of Olabisi Onabanjo University (name withheld), at Ago Iwoye Divisional Police Headquarters.

The students alleged that he was lured to Ijebu Igbo by one Yemi Justice, aka JP, under the pretext of going for a job.

However, on getting there, Justice alongside Gbemisola and Ogunsola blindfolded him, beat him and forced him to be initiated into Eiye confraternity.

Upon the report, the Divisional Police Officer, Ago Iwoye Division, SP Noah Adekanye, detailed his detectives to go after the suspects and bring them to book.

The detectives there and then embarked on intelligence surveillance for the suspects, and their efforts paid off when Gbemisola was sighted in Ago Iwoye, where he was still threatening to get back to the complainant in order to bring him to their fold either he likes it or not.

He was promptly arrested by the operatives who unknown to him were lurking around.

His arrest led to the apprehension of his accomplice, Ogunsola, who was traced and apprehended in their hideout, while Justice has since taken to flight.

He is being hunted for.

The Command’s Commissioner, Lanre Bankole, has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for discreet investigation with the view to charging them to court as soon as possible.
