Police Arrest 16 Suspected Cultists Going On Revenge Mission In Kwara

The Kwara State Police Command has arrested 16 persons, 12 males and four females, suspected to be cultists who were said to be going on a revenge mission at Oloje/Okoolowo area of Ilorin, the state capital.

They are believed to be members of Eye and Ayie confraternities

The state Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Bogega, who paraded the suspects at the command headquarters in Ilorin, said they were arrested while on a revenge mission in the area.

He said: “We immediately dispatched the newly created anti-cultists team, in collaboration with the vigilantes, to storm the area before they struck.

“The effort paid off as 16 suspected cultists, males and females, wielding weapons, including guns, machetes, axes, charms, wraps of weed suspected to be Indian hemp, and other items to be used in the foiled attack, were arrested,” he added.

The police commissioner also revealed that the suspects, in their statements, confessed to be members of the two cults.

“If not for our effort, they would have unleashed unmitigated terror on residents and we all know their trademark, death”, he added.
