Upon search as explained by the PPRO, one AK-47 rifle was recovered from the suspects and that investigation revealed that the suspects partook in the attack and setting ablaze of Afao Divisional Police Headquarters, Ikere-Ekiti during the ENDSARS protest in 2020, and carted away the AK-47 rifle amongst other arms and valuables from the station.

The suspects confessed to be members of the supreme Eiye Confraternity cult group in Ikere-Ekiti. 

Abutu said, intensified efforts by the RRS operatives led to the arrest of one Ojo Àlaba, Omotoso Sunday and Alabi Babatunde.

It was revealed that the AK-47 rifle is part of the arms used to rob one Olasunkanmi Joseph of the cash sum of three million, five hundred thousand naira (#3,500,00:00) at Irona roundabout, Ado-Ekiti on 06/04/2023 where the victim was killed on the spot.

The Police spokesman stated that further finding showed that one of the arrested suspects, ADEWUMI GBOYEGA a.k.a PASU, who is a drug Baron and present leader of the Supreme Eiye Confraternity, masterminded the kidnapping of one Falana Opeyemi on 11/07/2023, in Ikere-Ekiti whose whereabout remains unknown till date”.

Also, on 21/09/2023 at about 12:30hrs, the command operatives, acting upon a tip-off, swooped on a gang of suspected cultists in their criminal hideouts along Iworoko road, Ado-Ekiti. 

Recounting, the PPRO said during the operation, one Lucky Favour and Lawal Oluwaseun were arrested while others took to their heels. 

It was revealed that the two suspects are members of the supreme Eiye Confraternity preparing for initiation meeting prior to their arrest.

However, Abutu maintained that effort is underway for the arrest of other fleeing suspects and recovery of other possible stolen arms and ammunition. Adding that the suspects arrested will be arraigned accordingly.

The Command therefore enjoined all Ekiti State citizens to be security conscious, vigilant and report any untoward  incident or happening observed in their locality to the nearest Police Station or call 08062335577.
