Policemen attached to the Ilasamaja Division in Lagos have arrested eight suspected cultists including the leader of Aiye Black Axe in the area and a herbalist.
The suspects’ arrest followed last week’s bloody clash between members of and Eiye Confraternity.
It was gathered that six of the suspects -Samsondeen Musari, Senibol Powel, Opeyemi Shoyombo, Kosoko Abiola, Joshua Oke, Adekunle Akinbola – were apprehended over the weekend at a hotel they lodged preparatory to the attack.
Aiye leader and the son of a politician, Emeka Ihuoma and the herbalist identified as Adio,were picked up on Monday night when the clashes resumed.
Ihuoma was found with two guns and charms. He has since confessed to some killings, while the other Eiye suspect, who is a Uniosun graduate, owned up to killing four people.
