A 22-year-old suspected cultist, Jamiu Rasheed, has been arrested by operatives of the Lagos State Police Command after he was captured on CCTV hacking and shooting to death one Akinola Ayegbusi, of a rival cult.

According to a statement by the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Benjamin Hundeyin, the gory incident happened on July 7, 2022.

It is reported that the suspect and his colleagues committed the crime at a restaurant in Alapere, Lagos.

Investigations revealed that Jamiu has been a member of Klansman Confraternity since 2017 and has participated in the killing of two other rival cultists.

Investigation into the crime also led to the arrest of the armourer of the group, one Sheriff Module, 26, who was found with two locally made pistols and one other cultist, Emmanuel Samson.

Sheriff who was also part of the killing, confessed that it was carried out to avenge the death of their leader who was killed by the Eiye Confraternity on November 23, 2021.

However, Benjamin noted that efforts are ongoing to arrest other fleeing cultists.

He said suspects will be arraigned at the conclusion of investigations.
