According to the Commissioner of Police, Kenneth Ebrimson, Adewale Adeoye, alias, 16, male, 31, and three others had been on the wanted list of the command in connection with several cases of cult related killings in Ijebu Ode and its environs.

But speaking to Journalists, Adeoye who confessed to be a member of Eiye cult said he had only killed about three people.

He said he was a professional printer and a drop out from Michael Otedola College of Education, and due to his cult activities was rusticated and became thug for politicians.

He said several efforts of the former Deputy Speaker of Ogun State House of Assembly to rehabilitate him failed.

"I was made Chairman of a unit in the Road Transport Employers Association in Ijebu Ode, but I can tell you that I had not killed 16 people, but only three.

Speaking, the commissioner of Police, Ebrimson said Adeoye and his cult members were responsible for many cult related matters in Ijebu Ode and its environs.

Also paraded was an herbalists Michael Ijomu and three suspected ritualists arrested who were arrested  penultimate week for being in possession of fresh human hands. 


According to the Commissioner of Police, Kenneth Ebrimson, the four suspects were arrested with two fresh human hands meant for alleged money rituals following tip-off.


CP Ebrimson said the three suspected friends, John Feyisetan, Mathew Idosu, and Samuel Adegbola  of Owode-Yewa met with a herbalist, Michael Ijomu, to seek spiritual means of rapid enrichment.

The police boss explained that, the 40-year-old herbalist informed them that the only way out was to obtain fresh human hands to be used as a sacrifice for them.


He, however said, Mathew suggested his fellow perpetrators that he had a friend who could be useful. They visited the said friend with the promise to give him N1 million, which they did not have.


He explained further that, Matthew’s friend met with their demands, but on their side, Matthew and others could not fulfill the promise of N1 million which resulted into fight between them.


The two accomplices fought with him, to the point that their secret leaked to the neighbors who alerted the officers attached to the Idiroko Division.


In an interview, the four suspects confessed to the crime, but claimed the hands were dead body not fresh human hands.


They claimed to have gotten the hands for money ritual, but met their Waterloo when they could not raise the demanded N1million naira to purchase the human hands.


The CP therefore said, the fresh hands recovered from them had been deposited at general hospital mortuary for preservation.
