The police have arrested three persons following a gunfight with suspected cultists in the Ikorodu area of Lagos State.

The Lagos State Police Command disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday by its spokesman, Mr Bala Elkana.

The shootout took place on Monday when a team of police personnel raided a den of the suspects believed to be specialised in ritual murder and kidnapping for ritual purposes at Adama community.

The suspects were said to have opened fire on sighting the security operatives and used some of their hostages as shield.

Two policemen were injured while a teenager was hit by a stray bullet during the incident which lasted about one hour.

Elkana revealed that other members of the gang made an attempt to attack a police station at Imota community, also in Ikorodu.

According to him, the attack was repelled by officers on duty while effort is ongoing to investigate the matter.
