Cultist shoots self while trying load gun in Ogun

A suspected cultist, Jinai Sunday, has shot himself while trying to load and remove a live cartridge from a locally-made pistol in Ogun State.

The Amotekun Corps in the state has revealed that the “pistol accidentally exploded, resulting in serious injuries on his left arm.”

Ogun Amotekun Corps Commander, CP David Akinremi (rtd), has said Sunday and other accomplices, who are “members of Aiye Cult group” were having their usual meeting in a bush situated along Kakanfo village in Obada-Owode, Imeko-Afon Local Government Area of Ogun State, when the incident occurred.

Akinremi said after hearing the sound of a gunshot, the coordinator of Amotekun in Imeko-Afon, taking action on credible intelligence, immediately reacted to the issue and apprehended the injured suspect and thereafter, one Adejare Kehinde.

The Amotekun coordinator revealed that the said Adejare Kehinde was later exposed during interrogation “as an agent who procured locally made pistols for the gang from Republic of Benin.”

A member of the gang whose name is Ogundele Elijah, (alias Ogun 07) who identified himself to be an ex-convict, having been given six months sentence in Ilaro Correctional Centre for cult act, was later apprehended based on earlier confession by the first two suspects.

“Operatives of the Corps are, however, on the trail of other members of the gang still at large,” newsmen learnt.
