The Lagos State Police Command have arrested a suspected cultist, Jamiu Rasheed, 22, who was captured on CCTV on July 7, 2022 hacking and shooting to death one Akinola Ayegbusi, a rival cult member at a restaurant in the Alapere area of Lagos state.

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, 26, who was found with two locally made pistols; and another 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.

The police say efforts are ongoing to arrest other fleeing cultists.

“Suspects will be arraigned at the conclusion of investigations,” the public relations officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, said in a statement.

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