22 suspects were on Thursday paraded by the Ogun State Police Command for alleged crimes, including alleged murder, cultism, kidnapping and armed robbery across the state within the last one month.
Ntomchukwu also paraded three suspected kidnappers, who allegedly kidnapped a 97-year-old man, Amos Samaye, along Ijebu-Ode/Benin expressway.
The Commissioner of Police also paraded four suspected armed robbers, who dispossessed one Ngozi Oyelade of her Toyota Highlander SUV with her personal valuables, in Sagamu.
While explaining how the 15 suspected cultists were arrested for killing Kofowora, Ntomchukwu said the alleged victim was a member of Eiye confraternity, a rival group.
He said the cultists invaded Pepsi Junction, New Garage, Ago-Iwoye, Ogun State, and killed Gbenga Kofowora.
The suspects were said to have been caught with two locally-made guns, one sword, assorted charms and other paraphernalia.
On the kidnapping, the police boss said the suspects were arrested with one Beretta pistol, one locally-made single-barrelled pistol, two live cartridges and assorted charms.
