According to the statement, the six men were nabbed following a distress call received at Oja odan divisional headquarters from the Oba of Gbokoto land, Oba G.O Olukunle, at about 4:25 pm, that some cultists were about to kill him in his palace.

The statement reads in part, “Upon the distress call, the DPO Oja- Odan division, quickly mobilized his men and moved to the palace, where they met the hoodlums shooting sporadically within the palace.

“The policemen engaged them in shootout and eventually subdued the cultists and got six amongst them arrested. On interrogation, the arrested suspects confessed been members of the dreaded Eiye confraternity.

“They also informed the police that, it was the son of the Oba who is now at large that invited them to come and eliminate his father because of an unresolved issue the Oba has been having with his mother. Recovered from them are; one locally made double barrel pistol, two live cartridges and one expended  cartridge, while the son of the Oba who has taken to flight was said to have escaped with another gun belonging to the group.

“Meanwhile the Commissioner of Police, CP Lanre Bankole has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to State criminal investigation department for discreet investigation with the view to charge them to court on the conclusion of the investigation.

“The CP also ordered a massive manhunt for the fleeing Oba’s son in other to bring him to justice.”
