Owoseni Gbemisola and Ogunsola Ayo were arrested on Friday by policemen from Ago Iwoye area of Ogun for forcibly initiating a student of the Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ogun, into the Eiye Confraternity.
According to the state police spokesperson, Abimbola Oyeyemi, the duo were arrested after the 21-year-old student reported at the Ago Iwoye police division.
The student was lured to Ijebu Igbo by one Yemi Justice (a.k.a JP) under the pretence of going for a job, but on getting to Ijebu-Igbo, Yemi, alongside Owoseni Gbemisola and Ogunsola Ayo blindfolded him, beat him and forced him to be initiated into Eiye confraternity.
On having the report, the DPO of Ago Iwoye division, SP Noah Adekanye and his men had embarked on intelligence surveillance for the suspects.
“Their efforts paid off when Owoseni Gbemisola was sighted in Ago-Iwoye where he was still threatening to get back to the complainant in order to bring him to their fold whether he likes or not,” Oyeyemi stated.
His arrest had led to the apprehension of his accomplice, Ayo Ogunsola, who Oyeyemi said was traced and arrested in their hideout.
Yemi Justice is still on the run as those already cooped have been transferred to the state’s CIID.
