Police nab eleven cultists in Ondo


Detectives in Ondo State Police Command have arrested 11 suspected cultists in Owo area of the state, shortly after they were initiated as members of Aye confraternity in the bush along Owo/Ifon Expressroad.

It was gathered that the suspects came from Uzeba in the neighbouring Edo State for the initiation, and were rounded up while returning to their base in Edo.

It was learned that the Anti-Crime Patrol team, led by Owo Area Commander, Eboka Friday, arrested the suspects.

When contacted, police spokesman in the state, Femi Joseph, said the suspects had made confessional statements that they were in Owo town for initiation.

On how they were nabbed, Joseph noted that the body language of the suspects and the blood-stained polythene bags found on them aroused suspicion that led to their arrest and subsequent detention.

Joseph assured that all the suspects would soon be charged to court, after the completion of investigations, adding that the command would make the state hot for criminals.
