At least Twenty-One (21) members of both the Eiye and Aiye confraternities have been arrested by the operatives of the Lagos State Police command.
The cultists were said to have clashed in the Isikalu palace and Solomade areas of Ikorodu during a supremacy battle among the two groups.
“The situation is under control now as policemen deployed have taken over strategic points in the areas, while the 21 arrested suspects have been taken to the Anti-cultism unit for investigations.
” Suspects in custody have made useful statement to help the anti-cultism unit in its clamp down on cult groups, particularly in Ikorodu,” a source revealed.
While confirming the arrest, the spokesman for the command, DSP Bala Elkana, said the Police received a distress call that some cult members from two rival groups engaged themselves in a supremacy battle along the Isikalu palace and Solomade area of Ikorodu.
Elkana said that the Commissioner of Police in the state, Zubairu Muazu, had met with stakeholders with a view to proffering a lasting solution to youth gangsterism and involvement of teenagers and underage persons in cult activities.
