Lagos State Police command on Friday said they had arrested members of notorious dreaded group terrorising Lagos and its environs based on credible intelligence available to Lagos State Police Command,
According to Police Public Relations Officer, (PPRO), Superintendent of Police, SP, Chike Oti, some cultists led by one Kanmi a.k.a Father, were planning to strike in Ilasamaja community on the 29th day of March 2018,
He said the Commissioner of Police, CP, Edgal Imohimi, directed the Divisional Police Officer of Ilasamaja, Superintendent of Police , SP, Oriyomi Oluwasanmi Titilayo to bring to an end the reign of the blood thirsty Cult henchman who had been terrorising the Community for a long time now and had become worse since he came back from the prison.
“At exactly 5pm, Kanmi whose trade marks were sorrow, tears and blood arrived the community with his gang unknown to him that his rank had been infiltrated by the underground operatives of the Command”.
He added that, the DPO and the team who were on standby for him and his gang, sighted Kanmi a.k.a Father at Hassan Street, Ilasamaja with two of his criminal associates in a fight with a young man suspected to be a member of a rival confraternity.
Kanmi had lifted his matchet to cut his rival before he was challenged by the police team.
He immediately took to his heels and was pursued and arrested by the police.
Oti further stated that, Kanni was frisked and a locally made pistol loaded with two cartridges was recovered from him.
Meanwhile, he was arrested with one Alami Samuel, 22 years of age, an associate of Kanmi the Father.
The CP Lagos wishes to use this medium to warn all those who belong to these nefarious clandestine societies to renounce their membership or be arrested and dealt with according to the law.
