An un-identified young man have been declared wanted by the police, and is currently on the run for orchestrating the death of his father over disputes with the mom. 

 It is alleged that he invited a group of cultists to murder his father, Oba G.O Olukunle of Gbokoto land in Ogun State, on Sunday, September 11, at the monarch’s palace in Gbokoto. 

The command’s spokesperson, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, in a statement on Monday said six of the cultists were aprehended while attempting to kill the traditional ruler in his palace.
The suspects  are, Michael Ayodele, Monday Samuel, Ademola Matthew, Hammed Jelili, Ogundele Ojeh and Sunkanmi Fadina.

“The suspects were arrested following a distress call received at Oja odan divisional headquarters from the Oba of Gbokoto land, Oba G.O Olukunle, at about 4:25 pm, that some cultists were about to kill him in his palace .
Upon the distress call, the DPO Oja- Odan division, quickly mobilized his men and moved to the palace, where they met the hoodlums shooting sporadically within the palace.

“The policemen engaged them in shootout and eventually subdued the cultists and got six amongst them arrested.
Upon interrogation, the arrested suspects confessed being members of the dreaded Eiye confraternity. They also informed the police that, it was the son of the Oba who is now at large that invited them to come and eliminate his father because of an unresolved issue the Oba has been having with his mother.

“Items recovered from them include one locally made double barrel pistol, two live cartridges and one expended cartridge, while the son of the Oba who has taken to flight was said to have escaped with another gun belonging to the group,” he said.
