One of the notorious cult leaders terrorizing Ikorodu and its environs, Mukaila, a.k.a “Actor”, has been arrested by Police operatives from the Tactical Unit of Zone 2 Command, Onikan, Lagos.
According to the Zonal Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Hauwa Idris-Adamu, the Assistant Inspector General of Police Zone 2, AIG Ahmed lliyasu, due to the rise in nefarious cult activities in the Ikorodu axis of Lagos State, ordered operatives from the Tactical Units of the Zone to gather intelligence that could lead to the apprehension of the cult leaders and members terrorizing members of the public.
According to the statement, “It would be recalled that during the Presidential order for lockdown in Lagos State, Ogun State and the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, some criminal elements took the advantage of that for their criminal activities, thereby terrorizing, robbing, and molesting members of the public”.
“The AIG then ordered for the arrest of the cult leaders. This led to the gathering of information about a suspected cult leader, Mukaila, who had been accused of terrorizing some communities like Maya, Itele, Igode and Adamo areas of Ikorodu, Lagos.”
“The AIG dispatched a team of operatives attached to Zonal Monitoring Unit with intelligence to the area affected; they stormed the house and hideout of the said Mukaila and arrested him.”
“Some of the items recovered from him are one pump action gun, fifty-five live cartridges, one locally made axe and assorted charms while one of his boys was arrested.”
According to the ZPPRO, investigation is in progress and actions being expedited to arrest fleeing suspects.
The AIG said the suspects will be charged to Court upon completion of investigation.
