Days after the bloody cult clash in Obanikoro, Lagos Mainland, which led to the death of three cult members belonging to the Eiye and Aiye gangs, the Lagos State Police Command has begun a manhunt of a suspected cult leader identified Sunday Ayi.
According to the Police, the suspect who was declared wanted recently had been terrorising Ikorodu community and its environs.
He is allegedly wanted by the police for the various crimes he had committed in the area.
According to the Police, Ayi had been on the wanted list of the Igbogbo Police Division since December, 2015, during a clash involving his group and another rival group, Eiye cult, where properties worth millions of naira were destroyed and vandalised.
It was also gathered that Ayi had been on the run since he was declared wanted by the police over the clash which occurred in Igbogbo, Lagos Mainland.
“The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Imohimi Edgal, has ordered us to arrest the leader of the black axe cult to face prosecution for the crimes he committed.
“We have been given a matching order to arrest him dead or alive. We are doing everything possible to track him and get him arrested no matter how smart he is,” the Police said.
