The Operatives of the South West Security Network codenamed as Amotekun Corps in Ogun have reportedly apprehended eleven suspected members of both Aiye and Eiye Cult in some parts of the State in the last two weeks.
This was revealed in a statement on Tuesday by Mr David Akinremi, Ogun state Amotekun Commander.
He said the men were also involved in robbery activities, while dealing with illicit drugs (like tramadol, SK, Loud, Ice, e.t.c), including weeds suspected to be Indian hemp.
According to him, the arrested suspects had been involved in cult clashes leading to the death of a number of persons in Sagamu, Ijebu-Ode and Ijebu-Igbo.
Akinremi said: “ It will be recalled that our major towns have in recent times witnessed all forms of cult-related killings, gangsterism and disturbance of public peace.
“These criminal elements perpetrating the dastardly acts in the name of supremacy war has caused so much apprehension to the peace-loving residents of the State with Abeokuta metropolis, Sagamu, Ijebu-Ode, Ijebu-Igbo being the most affected.
“However, the Amotekun Corps is taking the war to their doorsteps with a view to checkmating activities of these criminal elements.”
