Cultist shoots himself while loading a gun in Ogun
Jinai Sunday, a suspected cultist, shot himself in the arm while attempting to load and remove a live cartridge from a locally-made handgun in Ogun State.
According to the state’s Amotekun Corps, the “pistol unintentionally exploded, resulting in significant damage to his left arm.”
Sunday and other accomplices, who are “members of the Aiye Cult group,” according to Ogun Amotekun Corps Commander CP David Akinremi (rtd), were at their customary meeting in a bush along Kakanfo village in Obada-Owode, Imeko-Afon Local Government Area of Ogun State, when the crime occurred.
According to Akinremi, after hearing a gunshot, the Amotekun Coordinator in Imeko-Afon promptly swung into action and apprehended the injured suspect, followed by one Adejare Kehinde.
According to the Amotekun chief, Adejare Kehinde was eventually exposed during interrogation “as an agent who purchased locally produced firearms for the gang from the Republic of Benin.”
Ogundele Elijah (alias Ogun 07), a gang member who admitted to being an ex-convict who had spent a six-month term at Ilaro Correctional Centre for cultism, was subsequently detained based on prior confessions by the first two accused.
