The police have arrested seven suspected cultists, including two females, following incessant clashes between rival cult groups in Mushin area of Lagos.

The Divisional Police Officer in Olosan area of Mushin, CSP Adekunle Omisakin, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the suspects, aged between 18 and 23, were arrested in Ladipo area.

He said that the gangs had been terrorising residents of Mushin with their incessant clashes.

“Three cutlasses, charms and one axe were recovered from them. They will be transferred to Federal Special Anti-robbery Squad, Ikeja for further investigation,” the DPO said.

Some of the suspects, who spoke with NAN, claimed that they were commercial bus conductors in Mushin, stressing that they were not part of the cult groups.

NAN reports that more than 20 suspected cultists were arrested and paraded by the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Edgal Imohimi, since the beginning of the year. (NAN)
