Following the arrest of a member of the Ogun State House of Assembly (OGHA) in connection with the secret cults killings in Sagamu town that left no fewer than eight persons killed, the Ogun State chapter of All Progressive Congress (APC) has urged security operatives in the state not to leave any stone unturned in its investigation.
Ogun APC in a statement issued yesterday in Abeokuta, the state capital by and personally signed by the party’s State Publicity Secretary, Ambassador Tunde Oladunjoye pleaded with security operatives to beam their search lights on the state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) which he described as “nest of cultists” in the state.
LEADERSHIP recalled that operatives of the Department of State Security (DSS) had last week arrested a serving lawmaker in the state, Hon. Damilare Bello Mohammed alongside five other suspected cultists who allegedly participated in the cults’ killings in Sagamu town.
The suspects: Debbo Animashaun, Bamidele Saheed, Ismaila Onitire, Adewale Otesanya and Tobi Owoade were within the official residence of the lawmaker representing Sagamu State Constituency 1, who was recently elected on the platform of the PDP.
Oladunjoye, who described cultism as, “a menace that deprives the society of peace”, declared that their activities must not be tolerated, “no matter whose ox is gored”, stressing that it has cut down several youths at their prime.
“It is no longer a rumour that notable members of the rag-tag PDP in the state are involved in cultism as high ranking members in their various local government areas. We urge the security agencies to track and monitor the type of meetings the so-called honourable members are holding, hosting and presiding over in their constituencies.
