A shocking discovery which left onlookers and individuals concerned in awe was made at the Ifako – Ijaiye end of Lagos Mainland today, Friday, December 1, 2017.

At about 5:00pm today, the operatives of the Lagos Neighbourhood Safety Corps arrested six teenagers for some of the most bizarre offences that would leave many holding their heads in their hands.

According to a member of the Corps who spoke to InsideMainland, the teenage girls between the ages of 15 and 17 were arrested for offences bordering on cultism, teenage sex abuse, immorality among several others.

“The girls were arrested for teenage cultism and immorality in the community. Two out of the six suspects confessed to belonging to the Eiye cult group with the men in the cult taking turns in having carnal knowledge of them at intervals.

“Also, three others confessed to being on the loose for a long time and have no regard for public space as they have intercourse with their cult partners in parked buses, market place at night and even in the Iju Secondary at night.”

Speaking further, the source said: “Residents who noticed the actions of the teenage girls in and around the school premises reported the case to us. We investigated and arrested some of them at the Ilerioluwa Coker market, Obawole.

“They usually come with their boyfriends into the market at night to commit the acts. Some of them don’t even have houses and they end up sleeping in the buses or shelters in the market.”

Of the six teenagers arrested, two of them confirmed to been part of the Eiye group and also have regular sex with the male folks who are part of the group for ‘protection’ purposes.

Meanwhile, one of the teenage suspects in her confession denied belonging to any cult group but admitted being involved in the sex ring going on in the community.

“I am 17 years but I am not part of any cult group. I only have sex with my boyfriend in the market at night because he doesn’t have a place of his own. I have been having sex since I was 13 and I wish I did not allow this happen to me. I promise to turn a new leaf,” she said.

Commenting on the arrests, a mother of one of the suspects who craved anonymity said she moved her family to their area from Lagos Island due to the neglect of their family from her husband. “I decided to move down here (Obawole) after my husband left me and my kids. I am shocked at these findings because I do my best to provide for them. I even allow her keep stock of the food business so that she can be engaged in one way till I find my feet to send her back to school,” she said.

However, to ensure the teenagers are closely monitored the Neighbourhood Corps officials told InsideMainland that the parents of the girls have been involved in the case.

The girls will report daily to the Obawole office of the Corps for regular checks alongside their parents and must be indoors before 8:00pm daily.
