How Lagos Police Raided Ajah And Arrested Cultists On Revenge Mission
As long as bad gangs exist, crime will increase. The Lagos state police command knows this much.
So when they got the tip-off on Tuesday, August 21, 2018, that rival cult members were fighting and damaging properties at Addo area of Ajah, Lagos, they did not take chances.
Operatives from Langbasa Police Station and FSARS Ikeja, swiftly mobilized to the scene.
On sighting the operatives, the warring cultists scampered in different directions but luck ran out on John Atie Wiliam, Ismail Abdulkarrem and Sodiq Musiliu as they were arrested at the scene.
They were immediately searched, during which six live cartridges, two wraps of substances suspected to be Indian hemp and assorted charms were recovered from them.
During interrogation, they confessed to being members of Eiye Confraternity. Their mission on that fateful day was to attack members of Aiye Confraternity as a revenge for the killing of their member.
Late Oluwasegun Samuel was murdered sometime in 2017 by members of the aforementioned rival cult group.
They have since given the Police a list of their members and promised to lead the operatives in their arrests.
The Lagos state Commissioner of Police, Imohimi Edgal, paraded the arrested youths on Monday, August 27th at the Command headquarters in Ikeja.
He told journalists that the command remains resolute in its fight against cultism, and would wish to use this medium to solicit the cooperation of the members of the public in this regard.
