Two men belonging to be Eiye cult group have been arrested in Ogun state for forcefully initiating a reluctant student of Olabisi Onabanjo university (OOU) into their cult, Siggy reports.
The suspects, Owoseni Gbemisola and Ogunsola Ayo were arrested on Friday by the police from the Ago Iwoye Ogun area.
Ogun police spokesman Abimbola Oyemi said the duo was arrested after a 21-year-old student reported to the Aga Ivoi Police Department that “he was lured to Ijebu Igbo by one Yemi Justice (a.k.a JP) under the pretense of going for a job, but on getting to Ijebu-Igbo, the said Yemi, alongside Owoseni Gbemisola and Ogunsola Ayo, blindfolded him, beat him and forced him to be initiated into Eiye confraternity.”
Consequent upon this, the DPO of Ago Iwoye division, SP Noah Adekanye, and his men embarked on intelligence surveillance for the suspects.
“Their efforts paid off when Owoseni Gbemisola was sighted in Ago-Iwoye where he was still threatening to get back to the complainant in order to bring him to their fold whether he likes or not,” Oyeyemi stated.
Unkown to Owoseni, the police were lurking around and waiting for the best time to arrest him.
His arrest led to the arrest of his colleague, Ayo Ogunsola, in their hideout.
The Ogun State Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, has ordered that the suspects be transferred to the state CIID for discreet investigation, with the view to charging them to court.
