Bariga cult clash: Police arrests gang leader, 6 others

The Lagos State Police Command has arrested seven suspected cultists who engaged in supremacy battle in Bariga area of the State on Saturday, leading to the killing of a 65-year-old woman.
The deceased, Adejoke Adefuye was burnt beyond recognition when her house located at 19, Oshinfolarin Street in Bariga was set ablaze by the rival cult groups.

Trouble had started when members of Eiye confraternity led by one Ibrahim Balogun clashed with another rival cult group known as Aiye confraternity led by a man simply identified as Gideon in a supremacy fight at the area.
 
The cultists, according to reports, vandalized some vehicles parked along the road in the area, while two members of the Aiye confraternity known as Bobo and Abayomi Olubola lost their lives in the fracas.
 
A statement issued on Sunday by the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Dolapo Badmus, confirmed the arrest of the cultists, as well as some of the equipment used to carry out the operation.
Badmus said the second in command of one of the cult groups was among those arrested, while three power bikes, one live/expended cartridges and a tricycle popularly known as Keke Marwa used to get to the scene were also confiscated.
 
She said the cultists have been terrorizing the area for some days and that they were able to make some arrests due to the quick response to the distress calls received concerning the fracas.

Those arrested, according to Badmus include Afees Olaide Fagunwa, Nurudeen Lateef, Richard Ewa, Richard Abayomi, Mohammed Musa, Kayode Dada and Adams Adelakun.
 
She said that the bodies of the deceased have been deposited at the Gbagada General Hospital for autopsy by the State Environmental Health Monitoring Unit (SEHMU) while other occupants of the burnt building who sustained minor injuries were treated by the Lagos State Ambulance Services (LASAMBUS).
She said that further investigation into the matter had been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), Panti.

Arresting them makes no sense when police will release them as soon as their Area fathers and politicians who used when they are needed for the odd jobs come greasing the palms of the police Ogas.

Igwe Obi said...

Police are not helping the matter.. they should send those 6 guys to life in jail or dead by hag... tomorrow you will still find them on our street after police meant have collect money from there Godfather or there family member...

PETER IFEANYICHUKWU said...

If only those boys would be jailed for life other idiots who engage in cultism would quit with speed but Nigeria as a nation is a mess, the politicians are criminals, the police are the real armed robbers so who will profer the solution

Ibrahim balogun aka ibro or asarailu is the product of death himself.that bastard kills without blinking an eyelid and even policemen fears the guy.he was arrested by sars a couple of years ago yet released again by the same corrupt police force after about 5months in jail.now he is back in bariga and causing people sleepless nights when he should be rotting in prison.till that boy also known as small jplum is killed or jailed permanently there is no peace for the residents in akoka or bariga.i curse the day that boy was born into the world!

tobititus said...

i thought olmide badoo said he grew up from this nighborhood,he ought to use his music to preach peace to these guys nah

Anonymous said...

Jeeeezzzzzz, so Ibro is back after the whole shit he caused in that area....It is well oooo...Useless set of nuisance. Police should once in a while raid in between Council Obule str and Zion close(all in Bariga, close to Oshifolarin). The set of nuisance that converges there everyday is real and they are mostly Ibro guys with stern looking faces...The Police should sort this useless tramps once and for all....Bariga street breeds are all the same...Gangsterism their first language, if I lie, ask Baddo
