Lagos Police Arrest Wanted Serial Killer Cultist Agodo
A suspected serial killer cultist, Segun Agodo, declared wanted by the police has been arrested in the Odongunyan area of Ikorodu in Lagos State.
Agodo was apprehended by a team of police detectives led by the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) at the Sagamu Road Division at about 10 am on Sunday, police authorities in Lagos said.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, noted that Segun – a senior member of Eiye Confraternity – had been on the run for a while since he got the wind that he had been declared wanted by the police for his alleged atrocities in Ikorodu.
But the suspect was said to have been sighted in Ikorodu on April 4, while the DPO and his team were on surveillance patrol in the area.
“The suspect, who has been fingered in many murder cases, including the alleged killing of a policeman, in Ikorodu, was arrested in possession of two locally-made revolver pistols, each loaded with seven and 14 rounds of cartridges, one axe, some cutlasses, and assorted charms,” Adejobi said in a statement.
Similarly, police detectives arrested one Sola Akinwole while the suspect and his gang members were robbing at a cars/motorcycles shop in the Alakuko area of the state on Friday last week.
The security operatives raced to the scene while responding to a distress call but before their arrival, the suspected armed robbers had shot one of the guards at the shop.
Akinwole was arrested and one locally-made pistol and four cartridges were recovered from the suspect.
