A statement released by the state police command’s spokesperson, SP Omolola Odutola, says two male suspects were arrested in the process, 27-year-old Sodiq Idowu, and Yusuf Wahab, 25. She said both suspects confessed to being members of the ‘EIYE’ Confraternity, and have given valuable information to the detectives on how to track other fleeing suspects involved in cultist activities

“They have also provided information about the syndicate, the location of their armourer, and the whereabouts of weapons that may have been used in their criminal activities”

The PPRO further stated that preliminary investigations were underway at the Agbado Police Station, adding that the suspects would soon be transferred to the state Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID) for a more discreet and thorough investigation of their involvement in the EIYE Confraternity and other related crimes.
