Police in Ekiti State disrupted a cult initiation ceremony in a bush behind Ekiti State University campus in Iworoko-Ekiti and arrested five students for cult activities.
The suspects were Adeyeye Adeyemi, 29, Adeyemi Tobi, 25, Moyosore Onajobi, 22, Dickson Godwin, 23, and Olowosaye Martins, 21.
Our correspondent gathered that police had information that some members of the Black Axe (Aiye secret confraternity) were holding an initiation rite inside a bush behind EKSU campus in Iworoko-Ekiti which lead to the arrest of five students.
Items recovered from the scene included one locally-made pistol, two expended cartridges, one gallon containing liquid drug, weeds suspected to be hemp and two motorcycles.
A team of the RRS operatives and police personnel of Iworoko Divisional Police Headquarters stormed the bush and the suspected cultists shot sporadically on sighting them.
During the raid, five suspects were arrested and all claimed to be students of Ekiti State University while other suspects took to their heels.
Meanwhile, the Ekiti State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Tunde Mobayo, has ordered a thorough investigation and arrest of the fleeing suspects.
