Detectives in Ondo have apprehended a three-man cult group for allegedly plotting to attack some members of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) in the state.
The trio; Adeyeye Deji, Adesuyi Damilola and Abiodun Lekan were alleged to be on a ‘revenge mission’ when they were nabbed at Abusoro, in the Ijoka area of Akure, the state capital.
The suspects are members of the dreaded Eiye Confraternity who had been terrorising the residents of Ondo, police said.
Funmilayo Odunlami, police spokesperson in Ondo, paraded the suspects before reporters at the police headquarters in Akure.
“On 29th October 2022, at about 1200hrs, we received the information that some group of Eiye Confraternity were mobilising to attack some OPC members at Abusoro, Ijoka Road, Akure, on a revenge mission.
“A team of Detectives from SWAT moved to the scene and arrested the following suspects: Adeyeye Deji, Adesuyi Damilola and Abiodun Lekan,” Ms Odunlami said.
She revealed that two locally made pistols that were found in hideouts of the cult group have been seized as an exhibit.
