JUST IN: Police Arrest Most Wanted Lagos Cultist
Kanmi alias Father is said to be a blood thirsty cult henchman who had been terrorizing Ilasamaja area of Lagos for a long time.
The police in Lagos had placed him on their ‘wanted’ list and luckily, there was credible intelligence that some cultists led by the same man were planning to strike in the community on Thursday, March 29 2018.
The Commissioner of Police quickly directed the Divisional Police Officer of Ilasamaja, SP. Oriyomi Oluwasanmi Titilayo to end the reign of horror.
They say his atrocities had become worse since he came back from the prison.
True to type, at exactly 5pm, Kanmi arrived the community with his gang unknown to him that his rank had been infiltrated by the underground operatives of the Command.
The Lagos Police PRO, Chike Oti went further to narrate how Kanmi was arrested.
“The DPO and team who were on standby for him and his gang, sighted Kanmi a.k.a Father at Hassan Street, Ilasamaja with two of his criminal associates in a fight with a young man suspected to be a member of a rival confraternity.
“Kanmi had lifted his machete to cut his rival before he was challenged by the police team.
“He immediately took to his heels and was pursued and arrested by the police.
“He was frisked and a locally made pistol loaded with two cartridges was recovered from him.
“Also arrested was one Alami Samuel, 22 years of age, an associate of Kanmi the Father.”
The police have now warned all those who belong to these “nefarious clandestine societies” to renounce their membership or be arrested and dealt with according to the law.
