Two arrested as cultists clash in Ogun

Two members of a notorious cult group, identified as Jamiu Okanlawon (20) and Oluwaseun Owoeye (30) were nabbed on Sunday during a rival cult group in a supremacy battle.

Two people were left injured in the clash that occured at Orelope area of Ilogbo Ota, Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government Area of Ogun State.

NEWSCASTARS.COM gathered from DAILY POST learnt that the suspects’ arrest followed a distress call received by the DPO of Onipanu Division, CSP Bamidele Job, that the cultists were on a rampage and disturbing the peace of the area.


Upon the distress call, the DPO mobilized his men, in collaboration with the local vigilante to the scene.


“On sighting the policemen, the hoodlums, who had already inflicted varying degrees of injuries on the duo of a 45-year-old Modinat Lawal and one Ope Saheed, took to flight, but two of the suspects were apprehended, while others escaped,” Ogun police image maker, Abimbola Oyeyemi said on Monday.

Oyeyemi said one locally fabricated single barrel pistol, three live cartridges, one dagger casing and assorted charms were recovered from the suspects, while injured persons had been taken to hospital.

Commissioner of Police, Edward Ajogun, has ordered the transfer of the suspects to state CIID.
