The Nigeria Police has nabbed no fewer than eight suspected cult members at the Ekiti State University, Ado Ekiti.

Sunday Abutu, the Police Public Relations Officer, Ekiti State Command, said, in Ado Ekiti on Wednesday, that the nab the previous day followed the intervention of men of the Rapid Response Squad following a distress call.

Abutu said in a statement on behalf of Mr Adeniran Akinwale, the state police commissioner, that, “At about 18:00hours, the command received a distress call that some suspected members of Buccaneer Confraternity Alora Sea Lord secret cult group were conducting themselves in a manner that could cause a breach of peace on the campus of EKSU.”

Abutu said that the command immediately deployed the RRS to the scene where eight suspected cultists were arrested.

Abutu listed the arrested suspects as: “Onifade Akinsola (400L Political Science); Olatunde David (400L Computer Science); Omoboyowa Olabode (400L Political Science); Daniel Oluwagbenga (300L Accounting); Adeleke Tolani (300L Sociology); Andrew Ochuko (300L Sociology); Bamiduro Olawale (CarryOver Student of Political Science); and Adelakun Omoniyi (2023 graduate).

“During the operation, some of the fleeing gang members fired gunshots at the Armoured Personnel Carrier conveying the RRS operatives and damaged the windscreen. Efforts are underway to arrest them and recover the weapons in their possession.

“Exhibits recovered from the arrested suspects are two yellow fez caps with Buccaneer Confraternity Alora Sea Lord secret cult logo and an inscription that reads – Santa Barbara Love Victory and Perfection,” the PPRO stated.

Two weeks ago, two students of Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma, Edo State, were killed by cult members outside the university premises.
