Ogun State Police Command on Tuesday paraded 11 suspected cultists for allegedly killing 25 residents within a month in Ijebu Ode and its environs.

The state Commissioner of Police Edward Ajogun who paraded the suspects said they engaged security operatives in a fight before they were arrested and taken to the Ijebu Area Command, Igbeba, Ijebu Ode.

Ajogun said the suspects who are members of Eiye Confraternity killed 25 people during supremacy battles between rival cults last year.

He also said assorted arms and ammunition were recovered from them.

Ajogun said; “I want to sound a note of warning to all the leaders, rank and file members, counsellors and procurers of cultists, and others, who are nursing the ambition of joining them that the command is all out for you all. We are determined; we are battle ready.
