Ogun State Police Command has confirmed the arrest of member of the state House of Assembly alongside six other suspects in connection with the violence that erupted in Sagamu, last weekend.

The lawmaker representing Sagamu State Constituency 1, Mr. Damilare Mohammed, was alleged to have provided shelter to the fleeing cultists.

According to police source, a team of security operatives, in a sting operation after a tip-off, arrested the suspects in the premises of the lawmaker.

Those arrested, according to sources, include Damilare Mohammed aka DRE, Debbo Animashaun, Bamidele Saheed, Ismaila Onitire, Adewale Otesanya and Tobi Owoade.

They are currently undergoing interrogation at the Department of State Service, DSS, office.

Sources revealed that dangerous weapons, including guns, were recovered from the suspects.
