Nigeria News: A Notorious Cultist And Robber Died In A Gun Battle With The Police


You can't call this a youthful lifestyle. It is common among youths, to belong to a group or a gang. It can be for protection, power, fame or for one stupid unknown reason. 

A notorious cultist and robber, Olamide Oloruntobi, 31 years old, who is a well-known cultist in Ishashi, a suburb of Lagos State, was killed killed during gun battle with the Nigeria police.

The late notorious cultist, who was the leader of the dreaded Aiye confraternity in the area, met his Waterloo at Durosooto street, Celenizer, New Mebamu, Ishashi, at about 8pm yesterday night, when the police were alerted that the group, led by the deceased were terrorising residents of the area.

Based on the information, the Divisional Police Officer in charge of Ishashi Division, SP Amuda Abolaji, led a team of policemen to the scene. On arrival, the gang sighted the police team and opened fire on them. This led to a hot exchange of gunfire. When the dust settled, Olamide Oloruntobi was found dead.

Meanwhile, his locally made pistol with one live ammunition had been recovered while the corpse had been deposited at Badagry General Hospital mortuary for autopsy.




The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Edgal Imohimi has charged the DPO, to do all he can to arrest fleeing members of the gang. He has equally directed the head of the Intelligence Unit of the Command to assist the DPO in that regard. The CP said that the death of a cultist is not a thing of joy. He therefore calls on parents and community leaders to prevail on their children or subjects who are members of these unlawful groups to renounce cultism and surrender their weapons to the police. 

He added that he will personally receive them and together with other stakeholders, ensure their reintegration into the society.

WARNING: To all Nigerians and to all Lagosians living in Isashi, my advice is to stay at home, watch before you go out. Also, don't stay late at night. Heed my advice if you don't want to pay for another man's sin. You know the common act. You might not have the one chance to defend yourself if you are raided by the police during this period. Be warned!
