Amotekun in Ogun arrest weed sellers fighting over customers

The Amotekun Corps in Ogun State has apprehended seven suspected sellers of Indian hemp while fighting over customers in Ogun State.

The Informant247 learnt that the suspects are also members of Eiye and Aiye cult groups.

The Commander of Amotekun in Ogun state, David Akinremi, revealed the identities of the suspects, who are all men between 25 and 40 years, to include: Alimi Raimi, Ayotunde Onakoya, Ogunmade Seun, Ayodele Oreoluwakintan, Taofeek Shita-bay, Ibikunle Gbengas and Ebiruga Oluwaseun.

Akinremi said they were caught in connection with a case of conspiracy and cultism.

According to the retired police commissioner, one of the suspects, Ebiruga Oluwaseun, on August 6 reported to operatives of the Corps in Ijebu North East Local Government while on surveillance patrol that, the first suspect, Alimi Raimi and one Ola (A.K.A. Ebony) had threatened to kill him.

The death threat, according to him, was over the supremacy rivalry as “members of a drug syndicate dealing in the sale of weeds suspected to be Indian Hemp and other illicit drugs.”

Akinremi said the rift between them began after Oluwaseun reportedly claimed seniority in the drug business, accusing the first two suspects of snatching his customers.

This, he said, led to a free-for-all that attracted the attention of the Amotekun Corps operatives.

He added that all the suspects were arrested at different locations in the town.

“Upon interrogation, they all admitted being members of Eiye and Aye Cult groups, who had been involved in the several killings of rival cult members in Ijebu Ode, Sagamu and Ijebu-Igbo.

“They also admitted membership of the drug ring in the area.

“Items recovered from them include, a UTC axe, cutlasses and some criminal charms,” it was said.
