While Mr. Edigie’s body was found along Oho Street, Uselu, another young man was killed along Imuetiyan Street Off Ojo road, Ugbowo, a in connection to the ongoing cult fight.

Bothered by these killings and some other rival cult killings, operatives of the commanded carried out the massive raid which led to the arrest of the 49 suspects according to the statement.

The statement listed the names of the suspects to include; David Ebube, Chiedu Rex, Samuel Ebi, Charles Eke, Monday Work of god, Kelvin Izea, Harry Christ, Emmanuel John, Isreal Omale and Emmanuel Eghaghae.

Others are; Destiny Reuben, Precious Osaemwingie, Biggy Tortive, Moses Edebo, Okoro Iyobun, Ezekel Ezi, Frank Amadasu, Efosa Kelvin, Desmond Moses, Jude Precious, keneth Osaratin, Joshua Osarodion, Chidi Adia

The suspects, which are all male, also included; Osas Emmanuel, Osas Cliffod, Godtimes Emmanuel, Julius Urhie, Philip Godbless Mathiew and Kingsley Edet.

Stonix News reports that profiling of the suspects is still ongoing just as the Command has vowed to arraign any found culpable in court for prosecution.

While commiserating with the deceased families, the Commissioner of Police, CP Abutu Yaro, assured people of Edo State, of the Command’s unrelenting efforts in ensuring that there is no hiding place for criminals.

The CP particularly urged members of the Eiye group and Aye Cult organizations to end their violent conflict, which, he regretted, has led to unnecessary deaths of their members, or be prepared for additional arrests and punishment in the days to come.
