Operatives of the Ogun State Police Command have arrested two suspected cultists in connection with a supremacy clash in Abeokuta, the state capital.
Habeeb Muideen, aka Oko 8 and one Ibrahim, aka Ayin, were arrested by the SWAT team of the command in the early hours of Sunday.
A statement by the Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the suspects were members of the dreaded Aiye cult group and were involved in a deadly battle with a rival group at Elega/Iberekodo axis of the capital.
Oyeyemi said the SWAT team swung into action after receiving a distress call on the supremacy battle between the groups.

“Upon receiving the distress call, the Commander SWAT, CSP Kalejaye Olanrewaju, quickly led his men to the scene.
“On sighting the policemen, the cultists ran to different direction but were hotly chased and Habeeb Muideen was arrested at Iberekodo while Ibrahim was apprehended at Ajitadun area of the metropolis.
“The two suspects are currently undergoing interrogation at SWAT office to determine their roles in the clash which left one Eiye member dead. Recovered from the arrested suspects are battle axes and assaulted charms,” the statement read in part.
Oyeyemi disclosed that in the last one month, not less than 37 members of various cult group have been arrested since the command started clamping down on them across the state.
Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, has ordered a comprehensive manhunt for the fleeing members of the cult groups.
