Cult Clash: Police Arrest Two, Recover Firearms In Lagos

The Police Command in Lagos State has arrested a suspected cult leader, whose gang attempted to forcefully take over a tricycle (Keke Maruwa) park in the Fadeyi area.

SP Benjamin Hundeyin, the Command’s Public Relations Officer, confirmed the arrest on Thursday in Lagos.

Hundeyin said the suspect was arrested on Wednesday by operatives attached to Onipanu Police Division.

He said the police received information that six suspected cult members were harassing commercial tricycle operators at the Keke Maruwa park in the Fayedi area.

”The suspects armed with dangerous weapons, including guns, cutlasses, and axes, disrupted the activities of the park and also tried to attack the chairman of the said park.

”On receipt of the information, a team of anti-crime operatives immediately went to the scene and one Seun Olatunbosu, 29 years old, was arrested with one locally made pistol and two live cartridges while others escaped”.

The command’s spokesperson said that during an investigation, the suspect confessed to being a member of the Black Axe confraternity.

”Efforts are on to arrest other members of the gang,” Hundeyin said.
