The suspects

Parading the suspects on Thursday in Ilorin, the State capital, the State Commissioner of Police, CP Mohammed Bagega, said they belonged to Eiye and Aiye confraternities in the Oloje/Okoolowo area of Ilorin.

According to him, men of the anti cultism unit of the command and vigilantes picked them up following intelligence reports that they were on a revenge mission in the area.

Items recovered from the suspects included guns, machetes, axes, charms, wraps of weed suspected to be Indian hemp, among other weapons.

Items recovered from the suspects

The CP said, save for the intervention of the Police they would have caused havock in the area.

He said during interrogation the suspects confessed belonging to the two cult groups.

But one of the suspects disputed the CP's statement, insisting that he only sells weed (marijuana) to fend for himself, wife, three children and his brothers who live with him.

CP Bagega said they will be charged to court on completion of investigations.
