Cultists In Ogun Shoot Dead Police Sergeant

A police sergeant attached to the Igbeba Police Station in Ijebu Ode, whose name is yet to be disclosed, has been shot dead by cultists.

This was confirmed by the Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi on Sunday.

Oyeyemi said that the deceased was targeted and attacked around 11pm on Saturday, adding that the cop was not on duty when he was killed by those he identified as cultists.

He said: “It is true that a policeman was killed by suspected cultists. But the policeman was not on duty; he was off duty at the time.

“I think he was going somewhere between 10.30pm and 11pm on Saturday when he was killed. He was no longer on duty at the time of the incident.

“A suspect has been arrested. The suspect happens to be a member of the Eiye Confraternity.”

Oyeyemi further revealed that a manhunt had been launched for other members of the gang.
