Seven suspected cult members have been arraigned in an Ota Chief Magistrates’ Court, Ogun State.
The suspects, Olaogun Azeez, 18, Tijani Azeez, 22, Jelili Adeniyi, 20, Sulaiman Owolabi, 24, Murainan Shakiru, 25, Tunde Olanisa, 22, and Abinuwaye Abraham, 25 are being arraigned on two counts of being members of unlawful society and causing a breach of the peace, the prosecutor, Sergeant Abdulkareem Mustapha, said.
Mustapha told the court that the accused and others still at large, committed the offences on September 28, at 12pm at Aniserere area, Ota.
He alleged that the accused and their accomplices belonged to Aiye Confraternity.
According to Mustapha, they conducted themselves in a manner likely to cause a breach of the peace by threatening the community with dangerous weapons such as knives, axes and cutlasses.
The offences, he said, contravened Sections 3, 249 and 516 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Ogun State, 2006.
The accused however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Chief Magistrate Matthew Akinyemi granted bail to the suspects.
He, thereafter, adjourned the case to December 12, for hearing.
