The police in Lagos State have arrested a suspected cult member, Jamiu Rasheed, 22, who was captured on CCTV camera shooting and hacking Akinola Ayegbusi, a suspected rival cult member to death in the Ketu area of Lagos State.

The state police command, Benjamin Hundeyin, who confirmed the arrest of the three cultists via his twitter page on Tuesday, noted that the suspects were found with two locally-made pistols.

Hundeyin said, “Investigations revealed that Jamiu has been a member of Klansman Confraternity since 2017 and has participated in the killing of two other rival cultists.

Investigation into the crime also led to the arrest of the armourer of the group, one Sheriff Module, aged 26, who was found with two locally made pistols; and one other cultist, Emmanuel Samson. Sheriff who was also part of the killing confessed that it was carried out to avenge the death of their leader who was killed by the Eiye Confraternity on November 23, 2021.

“Efforts are ongoing to arrest other fleeing cultists. Suspects will be arraigned at the conclusion of investigations.

“The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Abiodun Alabi, once again calls on parents/guardians as well as traditional, religious/political leaders to prevail on their children/wards and the teeming youth population to stay away from cultism and other social vices,” he wrote.
