Cultist arrest while attacking hotel lodgers in Abeokuta

By Kolawole Olayinka, Abeokuta

A notorious member of the dreaded Eye confraternity, Esuruoso Tunde, was on the early hours of Monday 29th of November 2021 arrested by men of Ogun state police command, while attacking lodgers at Ladis hotel, situated at Ebenezer junction, Obantoko area of Abeokuta, Ogun State. 

The suspect was arrested following a distress call received by the policemen attached to Obantoko divisional headquarters, that the said hotel is under attack by suspected cultists. 

Upon the distress call, the Dpo Obantoko, SP Ignatius Alimiekena, quickly mobilized his patrol team and moved to the scene.

 The hotel premises was there and then cordoned off by the policemen, making it difficult for the hoodlums who have mingled with the customers to get out of the premises. 

Search was properly conducted on everybody in the premises and a locally fabricated double barrel short gun with one expended cartridge was found on Esuruoso Tunde. 

On interrogation, the suspect confessed been a member of Eye confraternity, and that the gun was handed over to him by one of his colleagues simply known as "Scatter". 

Meanwhile, the commissioner of police, CP Lanre Bankole, has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspect to anti cultists section of the state criminal investigation and intelligence department for discreet investigation. He also directed that his other accomplices must be hunted for and brought to justice. 

The CP therefore warned hoteliers to be wary of those they will be accommodating in their facilities, as any hotel found to be harbouring criminals will be decisively dealt with in accordance with the the provisions of the law.
