The police have arrested a notorious member of the dreaded Eiye confraternity, Tunde Esuruoso, for attacking lodgers at a location in the Obantoko area of Abeokuta.

It was gathered that the police at the Obantoko divisional headquarters had received a distress call that the hotel was being attacked by cultists.

Consequently, the DPO of Obantoko, SP Ignatius Alimiekena, mobilized his patrol team to the scene, cordoned off the premises, making it difficult for the hoodlums, who had mingled with lodgers, to get out of the premises.

Confirming the incident, the Ogun State Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said there was a thorough search conducted on everyone within the premises, adding that “a locally fabricated double-barrel shotgun with one expended cartridge was found on Esuruoso.”

On interrogation, Oyeyemi said the suspect confessed to being an Eiye member, and that “the gun was handed over to him by his colleague, who is simply known as ‘Scatter’.”

Oyeyemi explained that the Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, has ordered that the suspect be transferred to the anti-cultism section of the state CIID for discreet investigation, directing that his accomplices be hunted down.
