The Edo Police Force has arrested seven suspects on suspicion of involvement in cult activities and murders in the state. SP Chidi Nwabuzor, the Edo Police Public Relations Officer, while addressing journalists in Benin on Thursday, said the Police had identified the suspects as Okechukwu Samuel, Omoruyi Friday, Osayande Ogbomwan, Adodo Etiosa, Ogbeifun Destiny, Atohan Osazuwa, and Enohiese Nelson.

Nwabuzor said officers from the Aduwawa District Police Station raided the danger zone of the Upper Mission Extension.

The operation, which followed cult killings, led to the arrest of the suspects in an RX 330 SUV with registration number BEN 899 NC.

During the search, the authorities found a laptop and a cutlass, and the suspects confessed to their involvement in the recent cult fights as members of Black Axe. In addition, the Police spokesman reported that the Police and vigilantes arrested other individuals in the Okhunmwun community.

“Upon a search, [from] a bag belonging to Ogbomwan, two locally made pistols, and six live cartridges were recovered,” Nwabuzor said.

Ogbomwan, according to the Police, confessed that he and other group members killed one Gideon Ojeaga in the Iguosa community.

However, according to the suspect, they reject the claims by the Police, saying they are not cultists.

Atohan Osazuwa spoke with journalists and denied being a member of any confraternity. He explained that they were arrested on their way home. The suspect insisted:

They took us to the station. When they searched our bag, they found a laptop and a cutlass, which my friend uses to work on his building site. We are not cultists, and we didn’t kill anyone.
