The Police Command in Oyo State says it has arrested two suspected cultists terrorising the students of Ladoke Akintola University, Ogbomoso, recovering guns, and knives, among others.
The State Commissioner of Police, Ngozi Onadeko, while briefing newsmen in Ibadan on Thursday said the cultists were members of “a notorious armed robbery syndicate” that invaded LAUTECH students’ hostel at Under-G area of Ogbomoso.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the two cultists were among the seven suspects paraded by the command on Thursday in Ibadan.
They were alleged to have committed offences, ranging from armed robbery, housebreaking and obtaining money under false pretences.
Onadeko said that the suspected cultists had on March 20, about 10p.m, armed with guns and Jack knives, attacked a student, and dispossessed him of his I-phone and siphoned N1 million cash from his account.
She said that the hoodlums also attacked other students of the institution and dispossessed them of their expensive cell phones, cash, and other valuables.
“The long arm of the law caught up with them in May, along the Ogbomoso axis, in a deliberately planned operation by operatives of the command’s Monitoring Unit, in collaboration with the local vigilantes and hunters.
“Active investigations are ongoing to crackdown members of the criminal gang,” she said.
