The state police spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, identified the six men as Aboyeji Oluwadamilare of Isiwu Ikorodu, Adebiyi Mathew of Aleke Ikorodu, Jacob Solomon of Aleke Ikorodu, Iliasu Jubril of Isiwu Ikorodu, Olubanjo Segun of Odo Iselu Odogbolu and Samuel Olaniyan of Odo-Iselu Odogbolu.

“They were all apprehended when the four Ikorodu-based cultists came to meet the two Odogbolu suspects to foment trouble as a result of a gun transaction between the two groups.

“Investigations revealed that the Ikorodu based suspects contracted Samuel Olaniyan to purchase a locally made pistol for them, and when the gun was delivered, they discovered that the pistol was not serviceable; hence they came with full force to deal with the Odogbolu based cultists for betraying their trust,” Oyeyemi disclosed.
